This wrought iron sign used to be at the entrance of my dad’s ranch in Texas. It is now in my home. I cherish it, because it is the only thing which belonged to my father that I own. Anyhow, I’ve made it my header photo for this blog.
Since I am kind of on the topic of my father’s death, I will talk a little bit about that. We keep loved ones alive through our memories of them. Pretty much everyone knows that. However, I never knew how powerful food & beverages can be in connecting with a loved one. For example, my dad always drank Chockfull o’ Nuts coffee. He said that the chicory in it reminded him of being in the war (which war he meant, I am not quite sure. It could’ve been WWII or The Korean War). At any rate, he got me hooked on that coffee. Every time I drink it, I connect with my dad (and I think that’s pretty cool)!
