Selfie with my late father

  1. imageHe wasn’t often this playful. Perhaps a flight delay. How narrow is his tie. He was six foot tall and 260 lbs.
  2. I keep it stuck in the edge of my bedroom mirror. This mirror used to be in my parent’s bedroom. They never stuck any photos or postcards in its edges.


January 6,  1916 my mother Elsa Viola Gabrielson, later Gibson was born. She died three days short of her 80th birthday.

Yesterday I saw my cardiac surgeon for follow up from October 1st open heart surgery. He told me to expect a longer recovery. He cleared me for a kidney transplant. Likely to happen in July.
