Father's Day

I thought this would be an appropriate time to thank my father for everything he has done for me. He is a good man. Thanks to him (and my mother, too) I was raised with a strong sense of property (“Don’t touch other people’s stuff.”), the idea that one must earn one’s way in the world (“There are no free lunches.”), and a role model showing that one must be honest and right even when it is difficult.

I do not feel any particular gratitude for the selection of the outfits that my brother and I are wearing in the picture above, but I doubt that my father had much to do with that.

Don't worry. Since Harry Potter, shirts with maroon and gold stripes are back! Well, maybe not those shirts.

Yeah, those shirts I can do without––but would I ever love to have that old Pontiac Tempest!
