the disc thrower

This statue has been in my life for all of my life. My dad is retired U.S. Navy and he always brought home neat finds from his days at sea. He saw the world during his sea duty days as a sailor and always wrote letters home, inviting me and my sister to find his latest stop on the map. I remember during one tour of duty, he wrote home and asked me to find the country shaped like a boot. Mama handed me the Atlas and I got to work on my new assignment. Between the neat finds and exotic currencies, Dad took the entire family along with him, through letters, pictures, slides and gifts.
