It’s my Dad’s birthday today. He’d be 81 if he was still here. He was a good man. He was good with his hands too — always building and making things, mostly with wood. The other day I grabbed some things of his from the garage, including a table he’d made and took a photo. It’s been 20 years. I miss him.
