The Coffee Was The Only Thing That Sucked

My sister and I have made a semi-regular practice of taking our dad on special dad-and-daughter trips to commemorate his “big” birthdays. He’d kill me if I noted his age here, so let’s just say they’ve been hallmarks. The first time — a few years ago — we took him … Read more →
