Dad always talked about making it to 55 while I was growing up in my teens. I would roll my eyes and blow him off for acting like a crazy man. At 31, I have seen him bury two of his older brothers. My father just turned 55 this past year. It is sad and I thank God that my father (and Momma Dukes of course but this is a story about pops) is in good health and has his new goal set on 70+. I have other ideas and a much higher number for the Old Man of course. My goal is to get him interested into a new hobby when he sets to retire. Push him to find a side project that will keep him inspired. Push him to find something like The Pixel Painter. A beautiful video documenting the 97 year old Hal Lasko. Thanks to my girl for sharing and thanks to Hal. My girlfriend is beginning to really understand my passion for design/art.
