This being Father's Day today, the reader's attention is drawn to last year's tribute to this writer's father, Paul Andrew Alexander, who passed away on the 20th of February last.
Dad has been blessed with a long life. He will turn eighty-six come this September, which is better than average even for a much healthier man. In the summer of 2012, he and Mom will have been married for sixty years ...
And so it goes.
