Went to visit my Dad last weekend in suburban Philly. He's hanging in there - hobbling about at 86 in the house where I grew up. He's a hoot - loves his sweets, keeps up with ABC news, is appalled at the current administration, and snoozes plenty. But he kept me hopping - fetching stuff, fixing stuff, and re-arranging. I inspected the fridge and threw away a few gems from 2016!!! Yikes!
These lovely pics are from a walk around the block. It was brisk - spring is very late arriving. On Saturday 4/14, the temp hit 80 or so. Then boom - a big plummet to 30 or so. And on Tuesday, teensy snowflakes fell. That's just wrong for mid April
I got to eat my favorite - Pudge's cheesesteak. Got to hang with friends - plenty of laughs. And time with Dad is precious - we have a grand time
I've shown this before - yes, a rotary phone in the kitchen with an added keypad. He won't get rid of it because then he'd have to re-paint the wall. This phone has to be the most expensive phone in history - AT&T has made a bloody fortune from his monthly payment. Crazy - well, yeah...but hey, it's part of the house.
