    Just read the story about your dads dealership. Never knew any of that, although I do remember how dark the 70s seemed. I was working in the cities and couldnt afford the gas to go home during holidays, plus I worked most holidays. Our parents went through a lot of hard times without us ever realizing it much at the time. Great story, very moving. Brings your dad alive in my mind. I look forward to a book of your stories in the future. They remind us of things we need to remember.
