cheers, dad, part deux,
and happy birthday

this is a retread of an old post. it's worth sharing again.

dad, at a party, christmas eve, mid 1983 or 1984

in most of the old candid party or social pictures of my dad, he is holding a drink in his hand. he wasn't a heavy drinker at all--it's just that he always seemed to carry that one glass of scotch with him all night at whatever party he was attending.

he would nurse that one drink all night, and never need a refill.

that's what i call social drinking.

i'll drink to that, and i'll hoist a glass of scotch to your memory.

i love you, dad.
