Father's Day

I normally ignore this greeting card created holiday,  but it seems a good day to praise my father.   He was tall and muscular.   His careers included bookkeeper,  welder,  encyclopedia salesman.  He had an exceptional memory.   He was an excellent chef and a very gentle and loving father.   A letter he wrote to my grandmother in 1949 from Fairbanks complained that they were 247 bars: "I counted them," and no bookstores.  He encouraged me to be interested in all forms of learning and was very widely read.  He was a big fan of Ayn Rand.

He was married to my mother for more than 25 years until he died.  This makes him the most patient man on Earth.
