Happy Birthday Daddy (Nelson P. Johnson)

We have so many good memories of our Dad. He would have been 88 today. Although he has been gone for over 5 years. His memories live on forever. He enjoyed life to the fullest. He had many hobbies, such as gardening, photography/videography and Mr. Fix it... He was always into something. His curious nature led him to study birds, animals, people and politics. One of his early hobbies was training and racing homing pigeons, for which he won numerous trophies and awards. Here are a few quotes from our good ole DAD

“Save your money, leave your wants alone and stick with your needs”

“No need looking for happiness when happiness is right here”

“You don’t live to eat, you eat to live”

Life is not a ridge track that we must follow. It is a glorious un met un tamed country….

“Life is not very long at it’s longest”
