Happy Father's Day!

My dad died one year before my child was born. Sadly, he never got to know his beautiful grandson with the kick-ass sense of humor. (Man, this child cracks me up!!)

My mom still lives in that house. I live right around the corner, in part, because that gives her easy access to the only grandchild she'll ever have.

Anyway, this is a picture of me and my dad back in the day . . . way back in the day. That suit and tie scare me a little—as do my little gloves and purse—but you can't tell me my dad wasn't styling something fierce!

Happy Father's Day to all of the cool dads and surrogate dads I know and don't know. Give yourselves a pat on the back. While you're at it, go surfing! It's Father's Day and International Surfing Day! Make your kids wax your boards or something. You deserve it!

Really great pic of you both. I am stunned that there are clearly more than 5330 houses in your street? Amazing!

Well, this is Los Angeles and this street, like so many others, runs for miles (although this one is cut off at times by other streets). L.A. is huge. I never even thought about that number signifying a house count! Wow.

That sure is a sporty pic! Thanks for the fathers day shout out. I did get in the suds, too. albiet just frolicking without a board.
The surf was good here today and the water is warm.
Summer is here!
Great tribute, Mary and I'm glad your mom gets cracked up constantly.
