God love my Dad, but he wasn't a funny guy. There was many a time when I thought he was joking and, to my detriment, he was not. I think all four of us experienced that. I cannot remember one time when he told a joke. He did laugh at others' jokes though.
But if there was one thing he really loved, it was birthdays...anyone's birthday, even his. And when it came time to blow out the candles, we had to wait until he said 'make it dry one!!!' We even say it now. I'm guessing, during these past 18 months, many candles did not get blown out for fear of the droplets.
