  • Dad’s Birthday

    Dad’s Birthday

    Today, Dad would have been 76 years old, which is an odd thing to think about. Still young enough that, all in all, it would be normal for him to be living still, but old enough that I can’t imagine him actually being that age. Here is me with him at probably the last time […]

If you’d rather not read a personal story, feel free to move along. The next post will be on message, I promise. You can delete the e-mail now. No hard feelings. 15 years ago […]
