Dad and I spent Thanksgiving at my sister Barbra’s place, where she topped off the meal with a delicious apricot soufflé.
Dad and I took a trip to Minneapolis to see my sister for Thanksgiving. It was good hanging out with both of them for the holiday. Above is Barbra and Wil.
A couple of photos from Dad’s archives. This one is Christine, Barbra, and Steven Bloy, on Christmas, circa 1959 (before I was around).
Barbra invited me and Dad to Minneapolis for Thanksgiving. Of course we had to take a few photos.
Last weekend, my father (Wil Bloy) and I went out for dinner in Roxbury (Dorf Haus, best fish fry in Dane County). At the back of the restaurant’s garden sits an antique farm rake across from a beautiful willow tree. Because it was Dad’s birthday, we decided to take a few pictures.
On this Father’s Day, after Dad and I went out for brunch, we went back to his apartment where he showed me some of the genealogy he’s been working on, including these wonderful pictures. I grabbed copies of them with my phone’s camera. First is the college graduation photo of my father, Wilmer Bloy (class of 1953). He was 25.
Last weekend Dad and I went to Minneapolis to see my sister, Barbra Bloy. The lilacs blooming in front of her house made a great backdrop for a few pictures.
Dad and I went to the Rock River Thresheree yesterday, to look at the antique farm equipment. The Farmall H is the tractor my grandfather (Theodore Bloy) bought around 1950 to use on the farm where my father grew up. Dad (Wilmer Bloy) stands beside an H from that era below.
