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!
