“Lee Living Life in Love!”


“Happy Birthday Lee” – Today is the day! – Every day of  “LIFE”  is the best day  that we can have – and everyday that someone  we  “LOVE”  can remember all the good days we had   – makes for this to be the best day ever!

This photo was taken on Ft. Lauderdale, Florida  – Beach  – while we were living in Florida – to  open the first  Dobbs  House Snack Bars – the beginning of our restaurant business. The date on this photo is June 1958. That background – Ocean – looks like there is no end to the edge of the world? Living in Florida – is “LOVE!”

“Miami, Florida – Boat Races”


Lee Aldrich, Sr.  and sons, Al  and Lee Jr.  – sitting along the Inter-coastal Water-ways – watching the “Boat Races” – just one of the spectacular events held  each year with all kinds of “Free” sitting  spaces for anyone who is able to find a close enough “PARKING” space – near by!

I am taking the pictures and the big worry was that “Baby Al” woud lean over too far and fall in  – Daddy and Lee Jr. are both good swimmers – but who wants to have something to upset an exciting event, like the “Boat Races?”  A real good and safe time was had by all!

“Happy Birthday Lee Sr.” – The above picture date is  July 1964  – so that is exactly –  50 –  years ago this event took place?    Nimbers – Place –  Time There is something to all of this  – my thoughts are trying to fit the pieces together  – to come up with something exciting???
