My dad was a 'rock star'

Technology is amazing these days, even the simplest thing can give great joy to people.  My older sister Kelly has now got a scanner and she's been busy scanning in some of our childhood pictures and its been great to share the memories.

Here's Kelly and me (I'm in the on-trend stripes) with my dad sometime in the seventies. My dad - Jimmy Valentine (such a great name) - had the most gorgeous hair.  We've got some Italian roots in our family so he inherited some of those traits of an Italian man - great olive skin and hair.  He had a great sense of style and really walked to the beat of his own drum.

When my nephew saw this picture he said that my dad looked like a rock star and I totally agree.
