Dad’s 2017

I am guessing you have already seen some of my random posts and/or updates about Dad this year, but I have been asked this question a number of times, so figured it easier and more clear/consistent to write briefly about it.  I toyed with doing a video, but that’s NOT my forte, so figured I’d go the writing route.  The ...
