Dad served in the Army Air Corps during WW II.

He was great at electronics and electrical work.

Dad worked on a TOP SECRET project(during the day) on a system for our very forst atomic submarine. SSN Nautalis.

We had a Ozzie and Harriet aqnd father knows best family. No fighting, no swearing, there was no abuse, no foul names for minorities and gays. I had no idea what they were until I was 10.

Dad got very sick and the VA didn't know what was wrong. My poor father suffered in pain while we did our best to take care of him.

The last thing we did together was watch the Apollo 11 moon landing in hich we were so proud, both of us had tears in our eyes. America is the best.

Dad would be bedridden and suffer until he died less than a year later soon after his 49th birthday.

It was hard but we managed.

...all right, baby.

And dance we did. We ducked the beer bottles that the drunk regularly threw about the house.
We walked on eggs every payday when our beloved Henry staggered home with most of his paycheck gone.

Yes, we had tears in our eyes.
Tears caused by the pain and embarrassment of the beatings we endured.

But we also wept tears of joy when that drunken Pole took his last breath.

You got to Dance with me Henry, All right, baby.
Rock with me Henry, I don't mean maybe.
