Dad’s trucking buddies

As I’ve mentioned before, Dad was always a blue-collar worker, and proud Teamsters member. I stumbled upon this photo of dad posing with a group of his co-workers. (Dad is second from the right.)

Dad looks pretty handsome as he was probably in his late 40’s or early 50’s when this photo was taken. He kept his dark shock of hair for quite a long time, only allowing Mom to “touch it up” when he retired a decade or so later.

At one time, Dad could have named every buddy in this photo. Now they are just faces in a photograph, many probably deceased like my father. Often we bond so closely with co-workers, only to drift apart as we move along in life. It’s all part of the process, but I see my dad as a strong, vital man in this photo and wish it could all be real once again.
