Photobooth Friday

Dad, 1945
My dad, dressed in his spiffy Navy duds. He was 20 when this photo was taken. I'm not sure why he's holding his name here. I found this in an old photo album, held onto a background of paper with little adhesive black corners. Underneath is shrawled (in my dad's slanted writing...he was left handed but curved his hand around as if right-handed), "Old Sea Dog, 1945"

Great photo. My pop was in the Navy, too. Wish he had some of these old photos lying around.

Enjoy your weekend!

Great picture! Looks like someone I would have enjoyed meeting! Your comment about his handwriting interested me. I'm an amateur handwriting analyst(heavy on the amateur) and wondered if you meant his slant went to the left or the right? Typically, folks believe that a person slants to the left because they are left handed. However, that's not correct. The instructor in the class I took (way back in 1976) said that the further a person slants to the left, the more they are saying " I'm a loner. I don't want to get involved-" and the further to the right the greater the involvement with others. There are extremes- such as a hermit- and a meddler. Just sayin'. BTW- my email addy is cocoschmidt01@yahoo.com - AND I'm not the be-all, end-all at-all, when it comes to handwriting analysis-
