Gail. A great story!
Jay Parker (I)

Right. I had forgotten that yesterday was Father’s Day. Here in Germany that was last month. So, when my kids popped in on my Skype, it surprised me and disturbed my solitaire game. Happy Pop’s Day, they said. I was set back because I wasn’t prepared for it. It was a delight to hear and see from them. Being so far away from them, they live 9 hours difference from us, it’s always a joy, especially when it’s good news. At my age, I don’t have many friends anymore — they’re all pushing up daisies now. I love that saying: pushing up daisies. It’s better than saying “being fodder for maggots.” Have a good day, and thankful for children.
