Day 4 of 30
My very first guy. 83 years young today. Still strutting down the sidewalk on his own. 
The man who taught me to appreciate the weight of a good book in your hands, an effective argument, fine wine, great music and a meal cooked with love. He is a straight shooter who tells it like it is.  He pulls no punches and is often abrasive. 
My dad has educated me on the finer (read:most important) things in life. 
I appreciate his unfailing and copious tough love. I am grateful that he is in my corner and love him so very much.
