Happy Birthday, Daddy.

Things I learned from you:
  • How to appreciate cheap, canned, but cold, beer.
  • How to shoot underhanded free throws.
  • How to mess-up, but ultimately complete (how ever crooked), a thousand different household projects.
  • How to play records without scratching them, and then how to listen to them with thanks that they, and the music they hold, exist at all.
  • How to take a theory. My dad never punched be clear.
  • How to support your children, emotionally and financially, though mostly financially, while they try to be poets, bass players, or filmmakers well into "adulthood."
