Mom gave me a great Christmas present today !

Mom and my brother were going through a lot of great old “stuff” that my dad had saved from his playing days.

I loved this newspaper article and telegram about dad (Jack Smith) being drafted in by the Philadelphia Eagles in 1958.

The money was a bit different in those days ! Dad elected to go to work As a civil engineer for Southern Bell , where he worked until retirement .

I am sure that he and many other old timers in Heaven are enjoying the Tigers latest success!

My apologies for the poor photo quality .

If pigs are so smart, why do 66% of them use weak and inferior materials during construction?
