Mad Men

Mad Man
My Father

If you're a fan of the show, you have heard
Ketchum and BBDO mentioned
several times.

Dad worked at both agencies in Pittsburgh
during the 50's and 60's.
He moved to Kennametal in Latrobe, PA
and worked there 2 decades until his retirement.
Advertising man through and through,
who forever influenced my appreciation of
a clever "turn of phrase".
He would be astounded by how 
social media controls advertising these days.

Anyone else been binge watching?

Yep! Hubby and I just finished Breaking Bad and loved it and I have been on a Civil War binge, watching everything I can about it. Now moving on to Ken Burns, The West. :) Have a good one! Kit

We have binged on everything, so sad we saw the last Mad Men on Nexflix, we didn't even know we were watching the last episode! Might start House of Cards all over again. We watched Breaking Bad twice! Mad Men has been the best of all though. My dad looked a lot like Don Draper, and was about the same sort of scoundrel, I think!
Your dad looks a bit like Don too, very handsome!

I've watched every season of Mad Men and have loved it. I didn't have time to binge watch before the final show tonight but would have enjoyed doing so! How cool that your dad was a M(AD) Man!!

I am a few episodes away from the final episode. Love it.

Your dad was very handsome.

I don't watch the show but I love this picture of your Dad!

I sure see you in that face up there - what a sweet looking Dad! I never got into Madmen, sadly...with the other few things I watch, I figured I didn't need one more ongoing thing. One day, I shall rent the whole shebang, and watch it all at once.

I sure can see Ben in your Dad. What a handsome man. I see great wit in his face.

He was a nice-looking man... it's a wonderful picture. I always liked that look on a man, shirt and tie but not always a jacket; meant business but not stuffy...
