Cee’s asked us this week to present our take on her Indoor Seating Fun Foto Challenge. This is from my Sawmill collection, photos taken after my dad died in 2007. He owned and operated Clark’s Sawmill for fifty years. It was his pride, his joy and largely defined who he was and how he felt about himself as a man, a father, a husband and a provider. He told me once that when he went to bed at night he could hardly wait to get up in the morning to go back to work.
This was his ‘throne’, the place where he sat to make it all happen – loading logs from the ramp to run through the big blade. It was my dad’s favorite seat in the house – or pretty much anywhere for that matter.

This is a wonderful tribute to your dad, Julie, and a great solution to the challenge. The clean cab tells me that your father was not one for distractions on the job. I’m sure his co-workers were happy for that, given his responsibilities.
My dad – where to begin? He was awesome and had a fantastic, irreverent sense of humor but could also be difficult to live with – and to work for! I miss him a lot.
I can see how much you miss him in that post. Fond memories.
