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.
P.S. My father-in-law is great, too!
