Happy Father's Day!
I uploaded the above photograph of my father Nelson and myself in the backyard of our house in the South Side Chicago neighborhood of Brainerd a few years ago, but as far as I can tell, never used it. It brings back many happy memories of living in that house and that neighborhood. I really admired and loved my father, a decent, kind man who did his very best for his family, and who worked for most of his life as a dentist, a job he detested. He passed away at the early (to me) age of 74, but was able to live for 7 years down in Stuart, Florida, where he could play golf every day and finally enjoy life. I am very happy that he was able to do that. Happy Father's Day everyone!
