Happy Birthday Pop Dishno

Today, February 11, 2012 would be my dad, Ed Dishno's 128th birthday. He was born in the Big Hole Valley in Montana on this day in 1884.

Pop died at 75 when I was only 25 but he left me with so many fond memories many of them I have written about and have many more to be written down. I have at least 25 hanging on my computer right now and I will get to them soon.

Right now I just want to say to my dear old Pop, thank you for planting the seed that turned into the person I am now. Your humor and influence really rubbed off on me, good or bad, I appreciate it. I also thank you for telling me about this beautiful, Montana. I wouldn't have come here if you had not painted such a great picture of it.

Roz and I look forward to meeting up with you again in that big "cow country" in the sky. What a great time and laughs we will have.

Love from your "Chum" Charles
