Sepia Saturday Aug 16


Sepia Saturday

Today's theme is:

241 : Writing and Letters

August 16 was my Dad's birthday.

 He spent time working in Manitoba, I had posted about this here.

While he was there he was very homesick and missed my Mom, my sister and me. He wrote great letters to my mother which she kept. Unfortunately none of her responses have survived. 
This is very appropriate based on the sign in the prompt above: REMEMBER TO WRITE THAT LETTER HOME!
