  • So sweet! Those photos look a lot like the ones of my Dad from West Texas at the same age. Just looked at them recently. Thanks for sharing and HB to your dad.

  • This is beautiful. What a sweet baby and loving family. Happy Birthday to Dr. Meadow . I am making an ‘old fashioned’ photo album for my grandkids and they love to look at the “real” ( their phrase) pictures and not ones on a phone.

  • Darn spellcheck! I know his name is Dr. Meador.

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Meador! And many more!

  • Thanks for sharing!! Your family’s album of pictures reminds me of the black and white pictures of my parents and other family members. My mother was great at keeping most of the family pictures together. My sister and I have the albums my mother kept. The best one is of my mother and her best friend in “flapper dresses”!! Priceless are these treasured memories of days gone by.

  • Great pictures, Ann! Your dad was a beautiful baby and a handsome little boy. This is such a sweet reminiscence on a milestone burthday of 90 years! Happy birthday to your dad! Wishing him many blessings.

  • Hi, Ann, It was quite a surprise to read your post this morning. Small world! Your father was a colleague of my husband’s at Vanderbilt and, for a while, served as his personal physician. The Division of Endocrinology was our professional home until retirement in 1997/98. Many happy returns of the day to your dad!
