Thinking of my Dad today, this Veterans Day 2018. I recently came across this photo posted by my sister on Facebook. It was taken sometime in the mid to late 1950’s when he served in the Air Force as a teletype operator. He had a lifelong interest in technology one that he passed onto me. He taught me that it wasn’t weird for a girl to get a Heathkit crystal radio kit for Christmas and enjoy building it.
He was always tinkering with ham radios and later building his own computers and taking apart existing ones. I regret that I didn’t spend more time with him over the years learning and working with him on his projects.
I will always be grateful to him for making me the nerd I am today.
Love you Dad.
