Susan & her Dad

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 12 June 2009 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Taken last month at the Korean War Memorial, before the wall of etched faces. Mike served during the Korean War, but was in the USN's Atlantic Fleet. Here he reflects with his/our very special daughter.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Very touching. I love Mike's shirt. Susan looks much like her Dad right down to those long legs. Two walks, good for you Judy. Keep on keeping on. God bless. ♥♥♥

@Marion: Thanks, Marion ... it was a very special time for us to be there together and I liked this more serious father daughter photo. She definitely is a Clark ... long, lean and 'small bottom'! <grin>
Walking is really tiring, but I can see how it's helping me. xo

Walking is tiring, but oh, so good for me. Thank you for your prayers! xx

@Marie-Hélène Ammor: Thank you, Marie ... I'm feeling much better; I tire easily, but that will improve.

I agree with Marion, Susan looks very much like her Dad. You captured a beautiful moment.
Very happy you are doing so well, Judy. Take care.

Meant to are you feeling?

@Jen: Thank you, Jen, for your comment and your inquiry.
I am doing remarkably well, however my stamina has not yet fully returned. The mile walk, in two increments, is about all I can do right now. I see the surgeon the 19th, so w/the progress I've made in one week, I can only hope to double it by then. ♥

Judy, I have been to these memorials too. It is a very emotional path down those names or edged faces. They did a truly amazing job creating these memorials.
I am glad that you are sleeping better now that you are home. It is amazing how much they poke and prode at you in the hospital all night long. I am sure that you will continue to get better and regain more stamina as time passes. My best wishes continue to be with you :)

@Marion: Yes, it's a somber and meaningful area in D.C. ... glad you had the opportunity to see it.
Thank you for your caring ... I'm doing really well.

Marvelous capture. I went to college (1953-57) with lots of Korean War vets; they provided real maturity for the university community.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

An really wonderful memorial, I've not seen anything like that before. And a beautiful photograph of your husband and daughter too.
Glad to hear that you are progressing well Judy, just don't do too much and tire yourself out. xx

@MaryB: Thank you, Mary; the memorial is very special, as are my husband and our daughter. ♥
I'm being careful to not overdo! xx

Lovely image of the family......not only humidity.... but boy oh boy, the heat is already here!!! glad to hear you're "sticking to the program" !!

Barbara from Florida, United States

Beautiful image of father and daughter. Still, Susan does not look old enough to have Bridget for a daughter. The age difference doesn't seem possible.
The memorial is an interesting sight. I've never been there but to see the monuments and memorials in your images has given me a great view.
You are making great progress.

@Barbara: I agree; Susan's aging well and while she's 26 years older than Bridget, it really doesn't show.
I'm happy you've enjoyed the D.C. memorials ... a few more are coming.
