In memory yet green
Thank you, El Coyote. Why, it seems like only yesterday your mother and I strolled along that decrepit boardwalk in Havana. The air was thick with fog and the fumes of gun-powder. We each hacked up a lung, or so it seemed.

But when morning came with the return of Mr. Sun, o! how we laughed! I stole Hemingway's watch and his half-empty bottle of tequilla, while your mother tied his shoes together, then we sprinted toward the Malecon like twin demons, imps of mischief as it were ...

But that was 1937 and the drums of war were begining to echo even on our side of the Atlantic ...

I'm sorry, I've lost my train of thought. But it's kind of you to remember your old father in these strange and terrible times.
