22. Who knows maybe your grandfather and my daddy

Are up there in the far off land, having mint juleps (Though I have to confess, in my dad's case, he'd prefer a beer.)

I think they would have gotten along very well.

I love your stories about him crying when music played.

My dad lived to be ninety, and the day of that birthday, when I called on the phone, he was "Can you believe this? Can you?" His mom had died at the age of 53, and he never thought he'd make it to sixty.

He also had lived long enough to get thoroughly disgusted with the Republican Party, and had voted for Al Gore in 2000. (My mom almost made him sleep in the dog house for that one.)
