  1. I loved it! Thanks for sharing! Never have seen the photo of Uncle Harley; it's a classic. Wish your dad Happy Fathers' Day for me. Thanks, Marcia

    1. I absolutely will, Marcia! I received Grandma Elsie's photo albums a couple years ago, and am slowly digitizing them - that's where the photo of Grandpa came from. They obviously took a few that day, and it's a fun collection to have. Thanks for reading! ~Jen

    1. Thanks, Jana! Sometimes, the simplest things are the best, huh? Have a great day! ~Jen

  3. Your photos are WONDERFUL; this is an excellent tribute to the fathers in your family tree!

    1. Liv, Thank you! As a family, we're very proud of our archives, and the many photos and other memorabilia we have collected over the generations. Thanks so much for reading, and commenting! ~Jen

  4. You have a family tree of fathers in pictures! This is a treasure. It must be unusual to possess a 4-generation series of pictures like this. Your family is both lucky and smart to save all these photos.

    1. Mariann, we consider ourselves very lucky. We have a few different images of Oscar, the patriarch, and all the other generations, we have lots of images. It's wonderful. And, really, I left out my brother and his son, so there are 2 more generations to include in the direct line of males. It's very special! Thanks for reading, and thanks for posting! ~Jen

  5. Happy father's day! Thanks for sharing!
