May Bee Day 13
My brother and sister in law, and my parents and my sister and my nephew and Husbandman were all here for a fine lunch. We ate cake and sang to my Dad, who turned 88 this week. Here's an interview with my dad.
How do you feel about turning 88, Dad?
I feel relieved. I'm looking forward to 89.
Favorite time in the last 90 years?
The 1960's. You kids were being born. I was working, going to night school, I was married to a wonderful woman. The world seemed optimistic at the time. America was riding high.
Who's your favorite child?
(laughing) Shirley Temple.
Tell me about an early job you had.
I worked at Walter Baker's Chocolate. We made chocolate bars for K rations. Ration Bars. My first day there, I was working diligently and came break time and I reached in my shirt pocket for my cigars. They were gone, As I reached over to put the concoction into the chute, I was bending over and my cigars must have fallen into the chute. Some lucky guy got a candy bar that tasted like chewing tobacco instead of chocolate.
Thanks, DAD! You're my favorite DAD ever. NO doubt about it.
