Wine Gums and Licorice All-sorts for Dad's Birthday!

My father used to snack uponWine Gums and Licorice All-sorts and a bowl of peanuts in the evenings.  Oh yes, and a can of Pepsi.

Dad would watch TV in the recroom downstairs as he ate.  Star Trek, Get Smart, Hawaii 5-0, Man From U.N.C.L.E., Gunsmoke, and Ponderosa were just a few of his favourite shows. 

He was a fastidious man, precise in deed and thought.  And yet, Dad could be very jovial and kind.  He loved playing tennis; going on yearly vacations; and, without a doubt, he loved his family ....

Happy birthday, Dad!  You would have been 89 today.  I love you and miss you!
