Just a Dad and his Son!

Sitting At Ihop ready to take Mario for his day apprenticing at our favorite Vacuum Repair Store…

Vacuums of America!

Me, “I love you honey”
Mario I’m embarrassed whisper, “DAD! I’m 16! Don’t call me ….”
Me chuckling, “oh yes, okay okay SON! SON! I love you SON!”…”remember when you used to…
Mario “…sit on your shoulder like the boy in Iron Giant”

To Mario’s consternation I’ll fairly certain I’ll forget and call him “Honey” for the rest of my life.
