It still had the cloth inside...
Joshua painted this...I want him to do a huge one... I just love the old mobil horse..Besides the cool graphics it brings memories.
Daddy in his mobil uniform, holding my niece, who is 39 now. I remember sittling in Daddys lap like this. Playing with his tire gauge, If I can find his, I will add it. 
added one of my button bouquets
Daddy called me Ladybug. He was a character.  He told me a story about his steel worker friend in Dallas who installed the mobil horse on the skyscapper, one of them got on and rode it around for a twirl. Men of steel for sure.

A memory box of my Daddy. Josh made the box and painted the horse I added the tin, buttons, maps, and memories.    Daddy owned or worked at mobile stations most of my growing up years. He was 50 when I was born, the last of his ten kids; he'd be 100 if he were still with us.  Happy Father's Day to all you Daddys.
