Comment on this artwork

Herb Behrendt was my Grandma Behrendt's (Dolores Lucille Erickson) 2nd husband. He was a big old baker that had baked in the Navy on a ship. He was then a baker at her bakery, the Hamline Home Bakery which was on Snelling near Hamline College. He was a very nice man to all us kids. His health waned very young and he died in his late 50s. But in the last few years, he grew this super long beard so he looked like an old ship captain to us. He love polka music and would sit back and tap along to the radio at his side. I found and old photo from the 1970's where he was hanging out at my Uncle Doug's cabin sitting back and staring at the lake.
