Today would have been my father's 79th Birthday. I miss him.
(Note bene: In case you are being or have been raised by Lesbians, "father" means--or used to mean-- "male parent". Also, a father used to be understood as indispensable to any family, so indispensable, in fact, that the loss of a father was considered a devastating tragedy. Now, of course, a male parent is nothing more than a lifestyle option. This Brave New World can go fuck itself.)
