Most of you know my father. He's an amazing 85 year old sweetie pie who has had a very good life, one that has been full of love, travel, success, humor and much happiness. The past year and a half has dealt him some very tough blows, however. His wife of 59 years, his one and only true love since he was a teenager, my mom, passed away a year ago this past June. He fell a few times, lost more and more of his mobility, then was in a car accident and broke his neck. Now he has fallen again. He is in the hospital, and I have come to Lexington to help out with his care. "Gloria in Kentucky" will be the name of this blog for a bit now. Here is a picture of my father and me, taken in May. Please send him good vibes for a quick recovery. Harold has taken several hits, but he always seems able to get back up, dust himself off and return to the business and joy of living. He's a true inspiration to us all.
