A man and his cigar. And his parakeet.

More pictures of my dad, in anticipation of his 100th birthday on SATURDAY. Not Friday as previously reported.

Here is the man convicted of his homeliness. But could he be any cuter? I think no.

Speaking of no, the adorable little girl is not me. That is my cousin Marlene. I was not even on the horizon yet. Even the parakeet hatched before I did.

I almost forgot the Pithy Saying of the Day! (according to Dad, this is advice that came from HIS father):

BE NOT THE FIRST BY WHOM THE NEW IS TRIED, NOR THE LAST BY WHOM THE OLD IS LAID ASIDE.

There. Put that in your cigar and smoke it 🙂

  1. I’ve seen that photo of your dad in your home many times, but never noticed the parakeet before. Ha.
    Beautiful tribute to your dad, Prude. I’ve enjoyed your celebration!
