Well, dad arrrived on Tuesday afternoon. A little sooner than we expected, but it worked out fine. I stayed home from work on Wednesday morning and we watched World Cup. During lunch we had a lively and interesting discussion about attitudes, personal beliefs and politics. We agreed on some things and disagreed others. In the evening we all went trap shooting and had a good time.
One thing which I thought was a little sad was the feeling that he expressed about not being able to communicate with the kids. Nothing in common, he said. Must be the generation gap. The kids have a different perspective or attitude toward life. I think it was an opportunity missed on my part. I should have brought in Joshua and then created a conversation for him to see what goes on in the minds of young people today. But, I’m not usually that good at thinking on my feet.
He left after dinner last night (Thursday) and headed back home. He is 72 years old today.
