In honor of father’s day

I drove from Boston to Portland (almost) without directions, got lost, swore, got back on Rte 1A, and applied suntan lotion by pouring it on the dashboard and then daubing it on my face.

Also so glad I get to spend the weekend with his brother (my uncle) and his family — for my awesome cousin’s wedding shower.  He’d be so proud, Carey!!

Miss you, Dad!

    I really miss him, too, Amy. I think about him every time I put on Vaseline and dress socks before swimming, or load toilet paper with the sheets coming off the top (the only way to do so at his house), or see the can of “real” Coke he gave me after he bought out our local grocery store in St. Louis when he heard New Coke was coming out, or remember the baby powder bombs he would set off in my bathroom while visiting us. They definitely broke the mold with him…
