Dad's plaid

Saturday was my dad's 84th birthday.  He is just the best!  I like to refer to him as Superman, because he really can do anything.  He is in great shape from walking 5 miles every day, and he whistles a happy tune all day long.  I feel so blessed to call him my dad!  Another great thing about him is that he is always well-dressed.  If he is not wearing a suit and tie, he can be found wearing a short-sleeved, button-down plaid shirt, so I tried this homage to him in card form:  

And here's my dad at age 81, climbing the rock wall on a cruise ship (faster than I did).  Always wearing the plaid shirt. :)  Told you he was Superman.
