Four years, ago, Nicole and I were driving back to my place for her spring break.  One of the conversations, Nicole asked who I would vote for president.  Then, I turned the question back to Nicole, she said she would vote for McCain, as he was the only republican.  All the super Tuesday talk, campaigning, this year reminded me of that story.  Nicole was wise beyond her 10 years at time.
I miss you, sweet Nicole.

Happy Birthday, Dad

When Dad drove school bus, he told the kids that he was 16.  One story, that I remember is that one kid told him, he had to be 19, as he had been driving bus for 3 years.
Then for many years, Dad said he was 27 years old.  The math didn't quite work, when Jeff and I passed 27.   That is Dad's style of humor, so Jeff and I were always younger than 27.
Dad, you can choose whatever age.  Happy Birthday and I miss you.
