Today’s photo and quote of the day are in memory of a great man, my father. Today would have been his 86th birthday. He was a wonderful man who had a passion for the finer things in life; nonetheless was extremely frugal. This is for you dad. I hope you don’t mind the color. I looked around and all that was available at the time was red. I know red is your favorite color, but I also know it is a bit ostentatious. I think you can manage, this once. I hope you will be enjoying a fine class of cognac later in the day. I love you. Forever yours. L

Today’s Photo of the Day is dedicated to my brother David, as today marks his ? birthday. Apparently men don’t like advertising their age either. The name for my image was chosen by my brother David, a professor and philosopher at heart.
