When I heard this week’s Cartoon Craziness Challenge was ‘superhero’, I didn’t have one minute of hesitation. I actually know a superhero!
Today is his 75th birthday, and he seems the same to me as he he was in his 50’s. Still has all his hair, and his all original parts, and best of all he still has his silly sense of humour. This cartoon is drawn from my favourite photo of him, taken by my hubby when Dad was over to visit us. I forget why he turned his cap backward and struck a gangsta pose – maybe some rap/hip-hop music was playing in the pub we were in? Still, you haveta love someone who is willing to be goofy a) in public b) in their 70’s c) in a foreign country surrounded by strangers.
Of course he’s super for a lot more reasons – but if I get all gooshy here, he will tease me unmercifully!
Love you dad and thank you for everything you have done for your family over the years. Wish I could give you a big hug today!
Happy Birthday Dad – love your gangsta vibes!
Oh, thank you! I’m about to ring him so I’ll make sure to pass this on! He does see the blog, but probably doesn’t follow the comments as he never makes one 🙂
Happy birthday to your dad! ♡
Thank you, too! He’s a way cool dude 🙂
Silly dads are the best! Goofy makes life real. Cheers to Dad!
He’s a retired policeman – so I’m very happy he managed to keep his sense of humour with all the hell he has seen.
That’s awesome, you’re good at this, even though you think you’re not!! 🙂
Actually, my worry was that I’d either have no ideas, or my ideas would be too grandiose for my abilities. I’m quite pleased that I’ve been having FUN with this. I needed fun!
I’m glad you like it. I’m sorry to hear you need fun. Hope all has been ok. I can’t believe I commented and never liked this, how much of a dick am I! *parp* that’s a leaving pressie 🙂
*gag* thankssss (passes out)
Aww, love this! Happy birthday to your dad! 🙂
Thank you! He does pop in here, and I told him to watch the comments as I don’t think he normally does 🙂
Just from the picture I like him.
Sled – if there is one person who would enjoy sitting and having fine whiskey and long discussions with you, it is my dad. I’d be there for the beer and fart-jokes you’d both tell 🙂
Fart jokes! Bring it on!
That man can rattle the windows, but never a scent on the air. Hence my never caring when someone blasts off! Until I breathe in… Oldest one I recall him telling is “Did you see the elephant that ran under my chair? Lifted me up three feet!”

Though I’ve never met the man in person we’ve traded thing through the mail. I have some gorgeous pieces of his handy work including a sleepy little owl that to this day still sit above my daughter’s crib and watches over her while she sleeps. Hope to some day meet him in person. I’d love to give him a great big hug.
Happy Birthday Super Dad!
