Today’s photo…my Dad.

My Dad and I have always had a special bond, that probably has driven my poor mom crazy – having to deal with our jokes and sarcasm for so long. To say I inherited some of his traits, is an understatement. We have the same sense of humor, the same penchant for either finding or manufacturing fun, the same spendthrift and clotheshorse tendencies, the same nose.  
I admire my Dad so thoroughly I cannot speak to any one quality I love best.  So I’ll just share something he said to me that I think about often, and try to let it guide me in my life.
“My wish for you is that you will be so well-rounded a person that you can just easily have a conversation with a homeless person on the street as you can with the President of the United States.”
My Dad is that.  I hope to be that, too.
