Father's Day Present 2006: "Blues Come Through"Although I live right next door to my parents, circumstances seem to conspire that my father is regularly out of town on Father's Day, so the best I could manage was to send him an email yesterday. That's good, though, because I know he and my mom are having a good vacation trip. And we gathered the family out at my wife's parents' place last night, with our kids running around in the cul de sac in the sun—good fun there too.

Over at our house, my own dad's day present was finally being able to pick up a print of "Blues Come Through," a painting by Alice Dalton Brown that wife and I have had our eye on since we saw it in Victoria, B.C. a few years ago. I spotted a framed version (about 60" x 40" in size) I liked at a good price. It's now hanging in our front hall, after my slightly death-defying adventure with a ladder, our steps, a hammer and picture hook, and a bubble level with which to put it up.

I think it will be especially refreshing to look at during the dreary winter months here in Vancouver.
