I found this picture in Dad’s stuff as I was writing Football Flyboy- and it made me think about a few things.
First is that Arnold would not have liked living here. And by the way, this is about the size of Arnold after he ate all the things not made for little piggies!
Hard to believe that tiny little piglet would get this big!
Secondly this was Pepe’s wife in Manila in the doorway. Dad talked about Pepe, the flyboys houseboy, in the book. He loved Pepe and the adoration was returned. Often times they Filipino people would take coconuts and food to our guys stationed there. It broke Dad’s heart how the country was torn apart by war.
These pictures and stories just fascinate me and I wanted to share them. Let me know if you enjoy seeing them!
