Wine I’m Retired Every Hour Is Happy Hour Shirt! This piece appeared in the Pasadena Star News on Father’s Day in 2019. It describes a favorite memory I had with my dad. My dad was not known for conversing with his children as we were growing up. I had my first real conversation with him, meaning he wasn’t yelling at me, when I was 17-years-old. We drove to Lake Erie for a day trip, about fifty miles from our home in Ohio. It was hot and humid and he complained to me that he was sweating. It wasn’t much, but it was a start.
