The Old Man & The Sea

My dad & me

Hemingway's "Old Man and the Sea" could have been modeled after my dad, swapping out the "sea" with "lake", or lakes rather (MN~Land of 10,000 Lakes).  My dad, who turns 83 today, is a crusty, curmudgeonly ole' Finlander (albeit American-born) who can catch fish even when the fish aren't biting.  Although he's slowed down a bit, and has a harder time getting his old bones out to the ice house in a MN winter, he still goes fishing as often as he is able in the warmer months.   Happy Birthday Pop!
