Happy Father's Day ! ! !

"A sulky is a lightweight cart having two wheels and a seat for the driver only but usually without a body, generally pulled by horses or dogs, and is used for harness races." source: Wikipedia

Dad grew up in the countryside of southwestern Johnson Co., Indiana, Hensley Township.  The township was named after his great-great grandfather Richardson Hensley, the first settler of the area.

He would tell us kids he raced his sulky against other guys in the neighborhood, and won!  The sulky was also used as transportation - guess it was easier (on the backside) than ridin' a horse to and fro!


In honor of Pop's history with the sulky, I created this Father's Day card for him.  You can make use of this, if you care to.  Print as landscape on cardstock - end result is 5 x 7 card, folded.  You may have to do a little bit o' trimmin'.

The graphic is from the Graphics Fairy, of course! Love Karen's wonderful site, with all the free vintage graphics she so graciously shares!

Happy Father's Day, Pop!!! I love you and pray you get better soon!

Additional note:  I entered this in the Pioneer Woman's Photography assignment: Fathers.  You can find it on her Flickr page.  It our "Pop Through the Years."

Love ya, Pop!
