My daughter is taking Spanish in college and has to make a presentation about family and has to have a PowerPoint presentation, so she asked me for alot of pictures. While I was flipping through a bunch of old photos I found this 1997 picture of Dad and me at Lake Tahoe.
I didn't even remember this picture and I love it! We had already been to Vegas (in 1987) and wanted to do something like that but different. We thought maybe Atlantic City, but then Dad came up with the idea of Tahoe. We took a limo tour around the lake and really lucked out. Our driver was fantastic: Old school yankee dude with lots of stories. He pointed out past houses of classic celebs like Frank Sinatra and had stories to go with. Later we wondered if he really knew all that stuff, but decided it didn't matter. It was great fun. At some point he pulled into this scenic overlook and told us it was a great photo place and he took this picture of us. And if you think Dad doesn't look happy, it's not that. He didn't like his teeth. We were having a blast.
It was really great to find that old picture that I had forgotten about. And for those of you that I have defended having plastic surgery to, please click to enlarge the picture and notice my left eye. The whole upper lid is falling down over my eye and this was the summer of 1997. I didn't have the upper eye work done until March 1999. I could actually see that skin and it was like always having someone holding a finger in your eye.
Anyway I really love that picture and can't wait to show it to all my old friends that loved Dad too. And if you ever go to Lake Tahoe, take a limo tour around the lake and I hope you get a great driver like we did.
