I created this card with my dad in mind. Robert Herbert Brown, Junior was born in Moultrie Georgia sometime in the teens of the 1900s. No one knows for sure exactly when as the census has something different than the baptismal record. And the court house burned down before he had a copy of his birth certificate...if in deed one even existed, such was the times in the south, we go by the one he celebrated the most.
Any way he worked for the B&O Railroad as a steward for more than 30 years. So he will love the railroad theme. A friend Marolyn had the B&O stamp in her vast collection that was showcased in a prior post, and I could not believe my luck.
My dad is over 90 and spent the last week in the hospital. So I am glad to make this card since I have been planning a railroad theme card for several years now (I stamped those B&O images several years ago). Glad I was able to find them.
The inside is a testament to my dad. It says:
5 Things I learned From My Dad
1. You can not leave at 8 and be there at 8. ( I heard this every morning because my mother was habitually late)
2. Measure twice, cut once. (Carpentry was his hobby)
3. Read the instructions
4.The difference between a Philips and a flathead screwdriver.
and 5. That I was loved.
