1957 + 50 YEARS = 2007

My grandson Nathan Miller is nearing the completion of Police Academy training in Maryland. I’m very proud of him.
My daughter Robyn, his mother, emailed me a photo of him in uniform.

In 1957 I was a cop in Tucson. I tell folks that I was a cop so long ago that I had to separate fights between Cain and Abel. I was 24 years old cop, same as Nathan is now. That brought forth a photo epiphany. I put together photos of Nathan and me in uniform, and labeled them “Grandpa Cop and Grandson Cop” 1957 + 50 = 2007.

If you can’t figure it out, I’m the cop on the left, fifty years younger and no beard. Grandson Cop Nathan is on the right.

My granddad John F. Lynn was a Los Angeles County Sheriff, and somewhere I’ve got a photo of him in uniform. When I find that photo, I’ll add it to the montage.
