Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to my dad, Terry Jackson.

13 pictures today as that represents his number (and my favorite as well). This collection spanning the 70s to present conveys what an outdoor/fishing dad is all about. They leave little doubt as to why I kind of dig this fishing thing and go a long way to explaining why I’ve taken up this little corner of cyberspace. Just can’t beat “fish stories.”

Of course, this meager collection barely scratches the surface of the photo albums, tubs and baggies full of outdoor pics. And while I do believe that “a picture is worth a thousand words” I’ll just let the photos suffice for today.

Thanks, Dad, for getting me hooked. Talk to you later. Troy

  1. Lots of different looks there in terms of fitness, hairstyles (or hair period), grooming and attire (or lack). Funny that the pics once upon a time would have simply resided in the family albums to revisit from time to time. Now, some guy puts them out there on a blog for the world to see and they are out there for as long as this internet thing lasts I guess.
