Fifteen years ago today my father died.
Keen eyed observers will notice that 15 years and just over a week ago is when I started sword fighting in front of an audience.
We buried my father the day before my first show.
So, I guess it was over his dead body...

Maybe I shouldn't be flippant about it.
Maybe he shouldn't have told me I was an embarrassment to the family.
I'm willing to call it even.

I turned on the Thanksgiving parade this morning.
Kiss was playing in front of Macy's in the Macy's Thanksgiving parade.
I have to say, I could not stop laughing for their entire set.
It was just so totally unexpected.
I remember watching the parade with my dad as a kid. He'd tell me about how hard people worked to get into the parade each year and how it was the best people from the US.
I don't know how he'd feel about Kiss...

Yesterday as I left work I looked down at the clock in my car.
"It was just about this time 13 years ago my father died," I said to myself.
Just then the song that was playing 13 years ago when I went to say goodbye to him came on the radio.
Yeah, that was weird.
