Weird Things Happen Sometimes

A weird thing happened.  I was looking through a binder that belonged to my father (in it, he kept a detailed record of his battle and recovery from prostate cancer, which was deemed as being caused by agent orange during Vietnam) when I came across an out-of-place piece of paper.  Apparently, my father was teaching […]
