Saturday Night Fun Facts about my Dad

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:
1)  Sunday, 21 June, is Father's Day.  Let's celebrate by writing a blog post about our father, or another significant male ancestor (e.g., a grandfather).

2)  What are three things about your father (or significant male ancestor) that you vividly remember about him?

3)  Tell us all about it in your own blog post

Well my dad was the son of a farmer, and even though he was a good gardener, he did not like farming. He liked to read but as a child he got bad headaches when he read very long. Turned out he was far sighted and the eye test he took as a child was the eye chart at 20 feet, which was easy for him, he could see a long way without his glasses.
He left home and worked in a logging camp in North Idaho, and later bought a Model T truck to haul logs. Later bought a Model A truck, and even later a Ford V8 truck. 
He lived long enough to see his listing in the 1910 census (Minnesota), 1920 census (Montana) and the 1930 census (Idaho).
