Happy 75th Birthday Dad!

Strange how such a giant man in my life could have been born so small.

Firollo Laguardia was the mayor of New York City when dad was born at Doctor's Hospital. The physician who delivered him also delivered my sister and me.

He was named after his mother's brother, Courty Barnes then stationed in the State Department's Far East Division.

Dad was one of the geat nappers even at a young age.

The engraved pewter cup is a time honored tradition. I suppose they're even safe to drink from.
