Memory

As I sit here, watching it snow on the first day of Spring, I am doing my calculus homework (quiz tomorrow), listening to Pandora. One of my stations is called "Big Band/Swing". So far the several songs I have heard take me back to Williams Circle and dinnertime. Remember how we used to listen to music most nights while we ate dinner? Well I am recognizing some of the songs as ones we used to hear. It also made me think about how we used to bring Dad's sweatshirt down to him when he got home from work. Off came the jacket and on went the sweatshirt. As I recall he didn't always take his tie off. I also remember his timing of arriving in the driveway as the food hit the table at 5:45.
