Called to wish my dad a happy Father’s Day. He was down in the basement looking for a book on the Indian Mutiny that he wanted to reread. He is a great-great grandfather, looking forward to his 95th party in August. And he was about to leave for a surprise birthday party at the country club of an old friend who is a youngster of 90. Here he is, holding forth in the kitchen on his birthday, last summer. - Michael Lipsey
