Happy Birthday, Dad

Korean VetMy father was born this day in 1931, he would have been 82 years old, today.

My dad was right about everything, even when he was wrong. I suppose I inherited that from him.

He told to to get a career in accounting because there is no money in being an artist – he was correct on that one. I didn’t listen to him, I rarely did until it was too late.

Since he passed, the family has scattered even further than we were before. My mom is in Texas, and I am in Arizona. My cousins, the ones that are still alive, cover the four corners of this country – I wouldn’t know them if I ran into them. We never were a close family. But one thing we did, we took care of each other. I suppose that is what counts.
