Like my hat?

Young at heart!!

After almost 80 years, 10 Kids, 18 Grandkids, and a dozen or so Great-grandkids, My Dad, Bob Kipling, still is that go to guy that everyone knows will have that joke or story to fit every occasion. Life is never dull when he’s around. If you need a helping hand around the house, he can fix, or build, just about anything.

I remember Dad working 3 jobs to support his big family. Full time at the Peoria Journal Star at night, the Metamora Garage during the day, and helping our landlord with the farming. Still I don't remember us doing without anything that we needed.

Yes, our dad is awesome! His stories always seem to end with a punch line though. I'm confused between reality and fiction. I asked him one time after listening to a long story, "Dad, is any of that story true?" His answer--"NO". Always a LOL
