Happy [Grand] [Step] Fathers’ [-in-law] Day!

With love and appreciation for all that they taught me and the ways they enriched my life, and sadness for those no longer with us.

Dad in Beijing in 1981.

Grandfather Clarence Blau (and his granddaughter) in 1992.

Grandfather Clen Robertson with brother Bruce Robertson at Bruce’s college graduation in 1984.

Image:  An older white man in a suit and tie who is wearing a graduation mortar board.  Standing next to him is a younger white man in a graduation cap and gown wearing the older man's fedora.

Step-father David North on the occasion of his 85th birthday earlier this year with my Mom doing one of their favorite things:  exploring an interesting new restaurant.

Image:  older white couple.  Woman on the left wearing a plaid scarf; man in the right with a full white beard and wire-framed glasses.

 

Father-in-law Denver Fox this past Easter, which we celebrated in the traditional fashion of being the least hip people at the Denver Biscuit Company.  (Thus the cigarette machine in the photo relates to DBC’s hipster status and not to any bad habits of my father-in-law.)

Image:  photo of older white man in a blue fleece and yellow shirt; his glasses are hooked over the neck of the fleece.

Extra bonus dad:  my brother Bruce with my niece.

Image:  white man in his 40s wearing sunglasses, a sports coat and an open-collar shirt; next to him is a white girl with long light brown hair.

I am so very blessed.
