Dad loved his woodworking projects. He made special cases; one for music boxes and one for decorative eggs for two of his grandgirls.
The tee shirt he’s wearing was a favorite. It’s from the “Beer Caucus” which showed up at the National Education Association Conference every summer. I attended several and made a point to visit the New Jersey delegation, home of the “Beer Caucus”.
I think as Dad aged and realized that he didn’t have the stamina to create wood projects, a little bit of him died. His father was an incredible engineer and the genes were passed onto him as well as my brother.
Today would have been his 92nd birthday. I miss his ability to tell jokes, his irreverence, and his love of teaching.
