Photos of Dad
Me and Dad with the family Dodge (c. 1940); this photo and the four below were taken in 1977 by Diana Schoenfeld.

I love this photo of Dad. He's running to help put out a fire in his neighbor's field. To me this photo is a wonderful representation of Dad’s attitude that when someone needs help, or when something needs to be done, grab your tools and go do it. He looks like a badass superhero.

My neighbor took Dad to dig for clams. He had a lot of fun this day.

Dad on Block Island. It was a beautiful day on the island, not many people there, and we had a nice time. I knew the ferry ride would be his favorite part, and it was.

Dad in Slovakia. We climbed a mountain in 15 minutes, under the hot sun, to get inside this castle. I was wiped out, but Dad had eaten a better breakfast and did fine.
