Harry Robert - Through The Years

 Happy Birthday, Harry!
Today is Harry's 66th birthday.  He and I have been together for almost 45 years so the pictures go back a long way.  Unfortunately, they're  a little sporadic at times and of terrible quality at times but here is Harry, pictorially, through the years.



So you can see how he's changed over the years (and, yes the only picture in my computer of him between 1971 and 1980 is of him playing Jarts) and how he's evolved.

The following pictures show other interesting things about him.

He was once in a band called the Hustlers
 He was in the Air Force when we got married.
He soon was the father of six.
 Who are now all grown up and have families of their own.
He's loved every child in his life from the first grandbaby.
 To the the latest great grandbaby.
 It's been a rite-of-passage for each of these babies to discover his mustache.
 And then as they got older to try to mimic its movement.
He's also young at heart and fun-loving.
especially with his grandchildren.
He's very helpful.
 especially with his grandchildren.
Here he is with the rock he and David found for our water garden.
  He has a great sense of humor.... which he shares with his children.
 And he's not only athletic but enjoys a variety of sports.
He worked for the same company for 45 years.  Here he was #6 in the plant.
 And recently retired as #3.
He's a wonderful person - kind, considerate, and loving.  And I've been blessed to spend the last 44 years married to him.
So Happy Birthday to a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and all around wonderful guy.  Thank you for being who you are!!!
