Happy Birthday, Dad.

My dad's birthday was a few days ago, and the anniversary of his death two days after that. I wasn't going to post anything, but now that I'm here and posting stuff I thought I may as well put my remembrance from my other site here. [6/19/16 note: That site is kaput, so the story is now here, on this very blog.] It's never easy this time of year, but it was better this year than a few years back when I realized I've known him longer as a memory than as a dad. Twenty years this year... Love you, dad.

That's really great, Brother. It's funny, I was watching George Carlin's latest HBO special, and for some reason (medication, old age), he'd put a lot more weight on his face than when I'd last seen hime, and the first thing I thought was how much he looked like your dad.

And, wow, you got Jimmy to recognize Christmas!
