Here is another great portrait of my father (also taken by my sister, Caroline) with her dog, Buddy. 

It meant a lot to me having time to spend with him, laughing and talking during his visit. I just don't see my parents or my sisters 
nearly enough. So it helps to at least have great photos of them around me. 

Today is my father's 64th birthday. He will cringe when he finds out that I've published his real age. But it's important to point
out that the man just doesn't look his age! Perhaps I can look forward to aging as well as he is.

With that I'd like to say: 

Happy Birthday, Pa! 
Love and miss you,
