Many thanks to Pat and Howard, who visited The Green Parrot in December and were so impressed with our Little Free Library that they cared enough to take the time to carefully select, pack, and ship a box of books to share. 
Pat is a teacher and so has a special place in her heart for books, especially books for young adults, of which she included many. They also noted that seeing homeless folks in Key West they wanted to share with them as well. 
This is truly an act of love and kindness and from all of us here, we thank them. 
We now have a Young Adult Shelf that we can be proud of. If we ever add a wing to our Little Free Library you can be sure their name will be on the cornerstone. #greenparrotbar #greenparrotlittlefreelibrary #littefreelibrary  #thankateacher

Pictured is Spiritual Rez keyboardist, Mohamed Araki,  from Sudan,  a talented and kind-hearted African, a truly kind person,who comes equipped with an arsenal of dub sounds on Keytar, Melodica and space age keyboards, but on top of his world class musicianship,  Araki, a student at the prestigious Berklee school of music, has recently gathered 35 Berklee musicians to perform with guest artists from Sudan,  Emmanuel Jal, Asim Gorashi, Mohamed Tahir, and Abu Araki Elbakheet, Araki’s father.
“Sudan is heir to an extremely rich tradition of musical, dramatic, and artistic expression, yet this music has not been well exposed or documented due to civil and political turmoil in the country,” says Araki. “The concert’s title, Al-Murtaja, means the thing or person people are waiting for, and this concert fulfills that wish by featuring musicians from all parts of Sudan to create a sense of shared cultural identity.” A recording session has been arranged for all of the musicians and a forum and multimedia exhibition including traditional clothing and food and photographs organized by Araki will educate students about Sudan in the days preceding the concert.

In addition, leading up to the concert, the Berklee Media Center will host a screening of Beats of the Antonov, a documentary about music, identity, and war in the Sudan.

The Bobby Lee Rodgers Trio returns to The Green Parrot stage with shows at 10 p.m. on Friday, December 4th, and 5:30 and 10 p.m. on Saturday, Saturday, December 5th. 
A stellar songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, Bobby Lee Rodgers, whose music has been described as a mix of jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass and funk with improvised jams being the main theme in their live performances. 
Some of their unique sound comes from their use of a rotating Leslie cabinet, pictured in the foreground,  used for Rodgers’ guitar. Rodgers’ high level of playing has attracted luminaries like guitarist Jimmy Herring (Phil Lesh, The Dead) and Hubert Sumlin (Howlin’ Wolf), who have toured with him. Other guests include the Allman Brothers’ Derek Trucks & Warren Haynes, Phish’s Mike Gordon, Susan Tedeschi, jazz pianist Art Lande, Joe Craven (Psychograss/David Grisman Quintet) and violin giant Vassar Clements. #greenparrotbar #bobbyleerodgers

As one who has spent time on Mexico's Pacific coast, specifically San Blas, Nayarit,  we at The Green Parrot and I'm sure all of us in Key West are thankful that damages and injuries from Hurricane Patricia reported so far have been minor to those corresponding to a hurricane of such magnitude.
In the coastal municipality of Cihuatlan, near where Patricia made landfall, Dr. Antonio Abad  delivered two babies at the small hospital during the storm, a boy Friday night and, at 5 a.m. Saturday, a girl whose parents refused to name Patricia.

We sadly report that Dallas-based blues guitarist Smokin’ Joe Kubek passed away shorty before he was to take to the stage at  a North Carolina Blues festival last weekend. He was 58.
A legend within the Texan blues circuit, in 1980 he teamed up for a life-long partnership with Louisiana guitarist and vocalist Bnois King.and for decades, Joe Kubek and  Bnois King defined the blues scene in Dallas-Ft Worth. 
Kubek toured relentlessly,  including  riveting Green Parrot gigs from the 90's to 2011 that featured jaw-dropping sets that were virtual clinics in slide guitar.
 Well known all over North America as well as Europe, no modern Dallas bluesman had Kubek's cred, He was the link from Freddie King,

Kubek toured relentlessly, including riveting Green Parrot gigs from the 90’s to 2011 that featured jaw-dropping sets that were virtual clinics in slide guitar.
Well known all over North America as well as Europe, no modern Dallas bluesman had Kubek’s cred, He was the link from Freddie King, “The Texas Cannonball” to the Vaughan Brothers. He played in Albert King’s band and was a good friend of both Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B. King. His first record, Driving Sideways, was written by Freddie King. He released 18 albums from 1991 to 2015.
But as well as being a torch-bearer for a long, distinguished line of Texas guitar-slingers, Joe will be most remembered by those who knew him as a kind, gentle man, as low-key and humble off-stage as he was spirited and smoldering when he hit the boards.
When I accidentally double-booked Joe and Shanna Morrison (Van’s daughter) on a Friday night, Joe was the first to give up his dibs on the band house and we wound up at my house with my son on the couch and Smoking Joe and his wife in my son’s room. (From then on Smoking’ Joe was always referred to, respectfully, as Snorin’ Joe around our house.) Weeks later, he called from the road to again thank my family for our hospitality. That’s the kind of hairpin he was.

Well known for shaking up the Green Parrot Bar’s stage, Paul Cebar’s Tomorrow Sound. (formerly Paul Cebar and the Milwaukeeans) return to the Parrot with shows at 6 and 10 PM on Friday and Saturday, October 16th and 17th, and 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 18th.
Cebar’s long-awaited return to The Green Parrot is sure to be one of the year’s highlights as Cebar cranks out his mix of “classic soul meets Afro-Latin funk”. Says Cebar, “My departure has always been funk and soul oriented, with African and Latin aspects.” But Cebar now feels he is making some of the most vital music of his career that embraces hip-hop, reggae and old-school soul.
Mike Joyce of The Washington Post describes Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound best: “Colorfully-garbed champions of Afro-Caribbean, Afro-pop, and conjunto music, as well as the sounds of New Orleans, Motown, Memphis, New York and, yes, Milwaukee…” #greenparrotbar #greenparrotsoundcheck #paulcebar #tomorrowsound #milwakeeans #motown #retrosoul #newcollegeofflorida #newcollege

The Legendary JC's Lonesome Soul Revue brings their soul-stirring, hands-to-heaven, old-fashioned R&B/rock 'n roll sound to The Green Parrot with shows at 6:00 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, September  18th and 19th, and at 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday, September 20th at 6:00 p.m.

Take Sam Cooke with hints of James Brown and Sammy Davis, put some rockin' Southern guitars, a kickin' rhythm section and a midblowin' horn section behind them, mix it up, and you get The Legendary JC's.

Gospel-influenced and soul-stirring, and having attained almost mystical status among jamband crowd, the band drinks deeply from the well of the golden age of soul, when Stax/Volt and Jerry Wexler's Atlantic were the top dogs.

Vocalist Eugene Snowden channels the barely-restrained fury of the late Wilson Pickett as easily as he emulates the calming, beatific tones of Sam Cooke, dripping with the honey-brown tone of a bygone, gospel-flavored generation.

For those who like their soul more retro than neo, and if ballsy and raucous soul music gives you the Hully Gully fever, do yourself a big favor and plan to attend one, or all, of these steamy, funky butt-shakin' revivals. #greenparrotbar #greenparrotsoundcheck #legendaryjcs #stax #atlanticrecords #hullygullyfever #70ssoul

Congress Finally did Something right!
For bourbon lovers, September is a month of celebration.
In a bill sponsored by Senator Jim Bunning of Kentucky and passed by unanimous consent in 2007, Congress declared September National Bourbon heritage Month and called for celebration of bourbon as America’s “Native Spirit” and urges all to dive into the colorful history of bourbon, from its charred oak barrels to its Bluegrass State home.
The resolution calls for consumers who enjoy bourbon to do so responsibly and in moderation. The bill reinforces the 1964 Act of Congress that declared bourbon “America’s Native Spirit” by celebrating the family heritage, tradition and deep-rooted legacy that the bourbon industry contributes to the United States.
Green Parrot Package Goods & Spirits joins with Congress and the rest of our nation in celebrating September as National Bourbon Heritage Month.
Come visit us at 609 Whitehead Street, right next to The Green Parrot Bar and see the fine selection, and value we have to offer, not only bourbons, but all wines, liquors, and beer. #greenparrotbar #greenparrotpackagegoodsandspirits #nationalbourbonheritagemonth #americasnativespirit 

As a sort of mea culpa to Bourbon Purists that I may have offended  recently by the inclusion in my National Bourbon Month posting of the black-labelled Tennessee Whiskey that shall remain nameless, and, furthermore, as an acknowlegement of Kentucky's well-deserved reputation as the heart and soul of bourbon country,  I place here, on a pedestal,  an assortment of Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskeys offered at Green Parrot Package Goods and Spirits. Left to right Basil Hayden, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey 101, Bulleit, Angels's Envy, Woodford Reserve, and Knob Creek. 
We should also never forget that Bourbon is one product America still makes better than anyone else — and, in at least one way, it always will be because Congress decreed in 1964 that “bourbon whiskey is a distinctive product of the United States.” and remember the three elements make bourbon unique: American corn, pure limestone water and new, charred oak barrels. #greenparrotbar #greenparrotpackagegoodsandspirits #nationalbourbonheritagemonth #bourbonbirthers #americasnativespirit #bourbon #bourbontrail #bourbonbarrels

The Green Parrot will celebrate their 21th Annual tradesman's Appreciation Day on Thursday, September 17th beginning at 5 p.m. More than two decades ago, great American sculptor John Martini, whose Key West studio was just around the corner from The Green Parrot, would frequent The Parrot to quench his thirst after long, late-night sessions creating metal sculptures. He came, too, looking to recruit for his projects some of the able-bodied, often elusive skilled tradesmen known to take their afternoon breaks over frosty libations at the Parrot.
One of the things that came out of Martini's search for skilled laborers was the creation and eventual installation, in 1994 of an 8-foot iron sculpture that still hangs in The Green Parrot entitled, Where’s Jimbo and the Other Giants of the Building Trade?.
Featuring abstract figures with a plumber’s wrench, a carpenter, electrician, female painter, and a roofer, it has, over time, recognizably become what the Parrot oft represents — a bar that has been

On that installation day in March 1994, what began as just another Parrot party became the first Tradesman’s Appreciation Day—a day we dedicated specifically to the working men and women of Key West.
To mark the occasion, we issued laminated Tradesman and Tradeswoman Passes, complete with name, photo, occupation and authorization. Even visiting President Jimmy Carter got one. And rambling Key West tradesmen and tradeswomen began using the card as their photo ID!#greenparrotbar #tradesmansappreciationday #wecandoit #johnmartini #luckystreet #wheresjimbo

Back in 2007, my son Dan was into guitars, specifically building guitars. With parts gathered from many sources on eBay, he built a candy-apple red Muddy Waters Telecaster, working mostly on the kitchen table. Albert Castiglia and Dan were friends,  so when Dan told  Albert about the home-made Tele, Albert demanded to see it, then asked to play it. He must have  liked it, so much so that  he played the whole 90 minute soundcheck with it.That's Dan (with the Buddy Miles fro) and Albert checking out one of the custom features, namely the chrome Gretch Bigsby whammy bar, after soundcheck. That's my older son Nick, on the right behind the pool table talking to Richard Talmedge from The Restaurant Store. Albert's here the rest of the weekend including Sunday soundcheck.#greenparrotbar #greenparrotsoundcheck #albertcastiglia #muddywaters #muddywaterstele #fenderguitars #telecaster #bigsby #savefamilyphotos

 These volumes demonstrate how far afield this truly extraordinary man's interests ranged: from the case histories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders, to an exploration the place music occupies in the brain and how it affects the human condition, to Oaxaca Journal, a diary of a trip he took to Oaxaca, Mexico with the American Fern Society. #greenparrotbar #greenparrotlittlefreelibrary #littlefreelibrary #oliversacks #americanfernsociety #oaxaca #oaxacajournal #tuletree #bookleggerslibrary #bookleggers

This tiny bird, sitting on the porch of our package goods store Sunday morning, as high winds and squalls were about, was identified by our good friend, patron, and birder Mark Hedden as “an Ovenbird. It’s in the warbler family. It’s migrating”, I described it to Mark as looking confused but he disappeared shortly after my query, (the bird, not Mark), and I think now, rather than confused, he was just catching his breath, and barely, just barely, considering what he had been through, was just tolerating me trying to photograph him as I appeared to be getting on his last nerve.. (Just as an aside, just being called an Ovenbird has got to put you on the defensive right out out of the nest, I would guess.) #greenparrotbar #greenparrotpackagegoodsandspirits #ovenbird #warbler #birders

Joy Williams gets some great props here in the current  Sunday New York Times magazine:

@greenparrot 
Joy Williams gets some great props here in the current Sunday New York Times magazine: “The writer’s new story collection establishes her as one of the greatest chroniclers of humanity’s insignificance”.
Her 1980’s “Guide to Key West”, revised and still in print, is considered the best guide book to Key West, and by many one of the best guide books ever written. Conde Nast Traveler called it “a magnificent, tragic-comic guide”
In that volume she succinctly and aptly nails our bar: “The Parrot has an engagingly louche clientele, a pool table and a dart board, odd art, and an attitude best described by the sign over the booze shelves: ‘No Snivelling’. Many years later, her characterization is still spot-on, and I still find her description of our clientele as “engagingly louche”, to be, even as it sent me to the dictionary, particularly tasty, and continue to reference it in my own Parrot press blurbs.
Joy is a good friend, was my next-door neighbor for many years, and was an unflagging Green Parrot fan. Along with her husband Rust Hills she would frequent the occasional Parrot poetry reading, perched just inside the door, quietly nursing a margarita, as the poets took their turns at the podium.#greenparrotbar #joywilliams #greenparrotlittlefreelibrary #keywestliteraryseminar #keywestliterature

Three ingredients is a cocktail. Two ingredients is an emergency

@greenparrot 
Three ingredients is a cocktail. Two ingredients is an emergency”-Peggy Olson on Mad Men
With National Rum Day (August 16th) fast approaching it might serve us well to take a look at where The Green Parrot stands on the state of rum today.
In a tropical-drink world overrun with tiny umbrellas, excessive garnishes, too many splashes of Grenadine and swirls of Blue Curacao here’s what we consider to be perhaps the ultimate in simple cocktails, the Sailor Jerry two-ingredient Rum-and -Pineapple.
Pineapple, that most accessible of tropical fruit juice coupled with smooth, aromatic Cruzan-distilled , 92 proof Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum in a tall zombie glass packed with ice, can instantly transport you to some wide, shady veranda, a sun-drenched beach or Honolulu dive-bar…. or, maybe just grease the wheels to ease you into a seat under a Parrot ceiling fan for a Friday soundcheck. “What We’re Drinking This Week” is Sailor Jerry & Pineapple
Recipe: Take a 10 oz zombie glass, pack it with a lot of ice, add 1.5 oz Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, fill w/ pineapple juice, serve; no floats, no garnish, no limes.#greenparrotbar #sailorjerry #nationalrumday #rumandpineapple #notinyumbrellas #twoingredientcocktails #greenparrotsoundcheck

I'd like to also thank all our staff here for their professionalism,  and making The Parrot such a welcoming, warm environment for our patrons to enjoy such great music, and thanks to those patrons, the best anywhere, for their loyalty, enthusiasm, and passion for music, and for making the musicians feel so welcome and appreciated that  they cannot help but deliver their best performances each time they step out on our stage

In one of my favorite Hemingway passages, Thomas Hudson,  the protagonist and Hemingway facsimile in his novel, Islands in the Stream, rhapsodizes about a Daiquiri's  appearance: “It reminded him of the sea. The frappéed part of the drink was like the wake of a ship and the clear part was the way the water looked when the bow cut it when you were in shallow water over marl bottom. That was almost the exact color.” Join us to celebrate National Daiquiri Day, Sunday, July 19th,  at The  Green Parrot Package Store Patio, where, hosted by Pilar Rum and Premier Beverage we will hand-shaking the iconic cocktails from 6 to 7:30 while Bill Blue thumps out some classic R & B in the bar.
 There’s a reason the Daiquiri is a classic. It's s simple a cocktail as they come.
Fresh lime juice and a bit of simple syrup brighten and soften a good pour of white rum. The Hemingway version is spiked with a bit of grapefruit juice and maraschino liqueur, it’s a bit more complex than the classic, but just as reviving. #greenparrotbar #daiquiri #nationaldaiquiriday #pilarrum #hemingwaydaiquiri #islandsinthestream #thomashudson #premierbeverage #greenparrotpackagegoodsandspirits

Well, with Hemingway Days coming up, it struck a chord, my pantry seemed up to the task, and I dug out the Bacardi light, a ruby red grapefruit, some limes, and some luxardo maraschino and as well;crushed ice, a brisk 30 second shake....cheers! #greenparrotbar #greenparrotpackagegoodsandspirits #hemingwaydaiquiri #hemingwaydays #bacardi

Another National Tequila Day has come and gone but not unnoticed by Green Parrot Package Goods and Spirits.
Always on the lookout for  something to celebrate and and always looking to beat the summer heat, we broke out a recipe we’ve tried before, adapted from a NYT article we spied last summer.
Keeping it simple, which is our mantra, we started with a handful of diced watermelon from the supermarket, a few limes, some decent silver tequila and  some fresh herbs and chiles for garnish.
Mix three parts watermelon purée with one part silver tequila, we used Patron but Herradura, Sauza Hornitos or any other good silver tequila would do,  and ½ part fresh lime juice; serve over ice with a pinch of salt, a couple of slices of jalapeño . You can swap the jalapeño slices for a few mint leaves or a sprig of basil and I added a splash of Fever Tree Club Soda to give it a little fizz and pink it up a bit. #greenparrotbar #greenparrotpackagegoodsandspirits #nationaltequiladay #watermelonpunch

Larry Baeder broke out the flattop Martin for his Green Parrot gig w/ The Greens tonight in what he labeled his “first bluegrass gig”. Coulda’ fooled me!
Some great shit-kicking music has people crowding the floor right now with world-class fiddler Gary Mackey seriously tearing it up.
Good stuff.
Personally, I love it when one musician will play in 2, 3, or even 4 bands.
Maybe some day we’ll mirror New Orleans’ participatory, charged-up, creative-juice-building, if incestuous, music scene with their formula of 50 musicians and 500 bands.#greenparrotbar #thegreens #onehumanfamily

Started off yesterday with a morning stroll through Key West Cemetery, a photo op at the Southernmost point buoy (only 90 miles to Cuba!), followed by a Rum Punch Brunch at Green Parrot Bar (I believe to be the oldest bar on an island of bars), and a piece of key lime pie from the award-winning Kermit's.

Memorial Day

@greenparrot 
Memorial Day “beach-read”from The Green Parrot Little Free Library. I don’t think I have that kind of time to spend in the chaise lounge #greenparrotbar #littlefreelibrary #edithwharton #keepingupwiththejoneses #beachreads

This being Memorial Day  thought I would share this photo.

That's my father, Signal Corps Staff Seargant Al Vagnoni on the left, wearing the hat and the impish grin. Oh, wait, they're all grinning.

I'm picturing Al now,  sitting with his headphones on,  in a tiny, steamy radio shack in the middle of a vast pineapple field on the westernmost tip of the Hawaiian island of Oahu on that August  day in 1945, the day the Japanese surrendered.

Al was the radioman on duty who  received the first encoded message announcing  the Japanese surrender. He then passed the message on to San Francisco to be forwarded to Washington, D.C.  After passing the message on,  Al tore off  the piece of tape containing the historic bit of code and  that historic spool of tape sits in a tiny box in a drawer in brother’s house today.

In fading ink, he caption on the back of the photo reads, “Now what do you think we are so sad about.

While the mother and child bond is honored each Mothers Day, perhaps too often overlooked is the bond Moms have for other Moms. That bond is what shines through in this picture where some Parrot Moms, all sporting their “Parrot Moms Rock” gear, gathered on this special day to show some props for each other. Parrot Moms, Here’s looking at you,for tackling, bravely, the hardest job there is, parenting. We are flattered and proud you choose the Parrot for your oasis, a place to catch your breath, to unwind, recharge, thanks for all you do, and yes, you do Rock! #mothersday #greenparrotbar #parrotmomsrock

Top row, left to right, is The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, Amazing Rhytmn Aces To Stuffed to Jump, A Dave Brubeck Greatest Hits, Peter, Paul and Mary Album 1700.
Second Row, Blonde on Blonde and On The Threshold of a Dream, Neil Diamond (ouch) anda British Robert Johnson Collection.

@greenparrot 
Jack Hackett continued his “One For The Road”, poem-a-day residency at The Green Parrot today to celebrate National Poetry Month.
Inspired by the impish-looking Jack, pictured here, I big-dealed a few others, tourist and locals alike, into stepping up to the mike and reading something.
I thought it went well.
I even read one myself.
I asked a very nice tourist gal to pick a baseball poem from an anthology of baseball poetry I had because they were bummed to miss opening day at home in Cincinnati, she did, and she did great!
Then Whitey read one extemporaneously, then Lew from next door, then Dixie, and Nicole.
It was very cool and so spontaneous!
I think we will try it again tomorrow at 5:30!

@greenparrot 
As if National Beer Day and National Poetry Month were not enough here comes The Hat Trick, Today is International Beaver Day and their website reminds us, “Beavers are more than fascinating watchable wildlife–they can help us solve major environmental problems. To raise public awareness about this shy, but important species, individual actions can also range from writing a letter to the editor to doing a radio or television interview. An agency could take advantage of this day to launch a new beaver policy”, which makes me think, I need to revisit our old Beaver policy, which is basically “we love our Green Parrot Beaver more each day”!

I’d like to thank Nathaniel Sandler of Bookleggers, the Miami-based, mobile, pop-up public library. who recently donated this trove of quality books  to The GP Little Free Library. And special thanks to my son Nick and his wife Ingrid who delivered the volumes down to us from Miami.
It was during the Bookleggers meet-up on The Green Parrot back porch last Memorial Day weekend that our clientele’s affinity to communing over used books really evidenced itself and helped spark the creation of our LFL #greenparrotbar #littlefreelibrary

Pictured here is one of Buco's enormous record-breaking pumpkins being blown sky-high some years ago in front of his Waterfront Market. Along with his death-defying group Halloween costumes it is one of Buco's sorely-missed community contributions, most of all his even more sorely-missed Waterfront Market.
At The Green Parrot tonight we might not be blowing a pumpkin up  but we do plan to blow the roof off the joint at 5:30 and 10 PM when three of the original Blues Brother explode onto The Parrot Stage!

Curating the Green Parrot Little Free Library on rainy Sunday morning 
with more rain on the way.
I spy a new volume, no dust jacket but the author's name on the spine  catches my eye, Tony Hillerman.
Perfect day to spend with The Tribal Police in the land of the Navajo.
Thanks, Green Parrot Little Free Library!
As a footnote, on the Other Books 
by the Author page, the previous owner had checked off nearly all of Hillerman's previous books as well as some marginalia on how often a certain phrase appear in this particular novel.
That's another reason I love used books, and our little library. While a brand new book communicates with it's first-reader alone, a used book has the possibility of granting us, the current owner, a sort of legacy from past owners as well, be it a note on the flyleaf, a coffee stain, or a greyhound bus ticket used as a bookmark.#greenparrotbar #tonyhillerman #joeleaphorn #marginalia #littlefreelibrary

Fort Zachary Taylor early this morning. Water like glass and I’m the only swimmer. As my father used to say when he was particularly content, “I wonder what the rich people are doing today” Also feels like a perfect way to celebrate a birthday. 

Standing in clear water about up to my chin this morning I saw the shimmer of baitfish breaking the surface, the same as I had seen yesterday morning out by the jetty. This time, however, they were just a few yards away and in a few seconds, looking down, I a clearly saw the silvery/grey flash of a large barracuda by my feet that could have easily passed right between my legs.

On this Father’s Day I’d like to taken a moment to honor not only my father, God bless his gentle soul, but some of the the other men in our family who influenced me, each in their own special way.
Sadly all of the men in this photo are now gone, a few of them way too soon.

On the far right is my maternal grandfather, John Cardona, On the far left in the photo is his son, also John, In the center of the picture, with the bow tie and pencil-thin moustache, is my maternal grandmother’s brother, my great uncle, Carmen Donato. On his right is my uncle Dick, And that leaves Al, my father.I don’t know what to say about him that would really do him justice. As I said earlier, he was the gentlest of souls. He was soft-spoken, patient, loving, and never-comlaining, all this in spite of the fact, or perhaps because of the fact that he had a childhood that is difficult for me to even imagine, His father died when he was just 3, in the Spanish Flu pandemic in 1917. There was no social safety net for anyone in those days, let alone newly arrived immigrants, except the meager help that other newly-arrived family members or paisans could provide , or what little charity the catholic church could offer to his young widow and her five children. Because his mother could not support them all Al was sent to a Catholic orphanage in West Philadelphia till he was 13. Years later when I was in college I volunteered to help chaperone field trips for kids in a local orphanage and when I told Al, he cried.

You would think that the residue of his childhood like his would be bitterness or contempt but instead he emerged to become a man with a deep well of humility, optimism and grace. As my brother once said of him, “It’s as if the guy never had a bad day in his life”.

On this Father’s Day I’d like to taken a moment to honor not only my father, God bless his gentle soul, but some of the the other men in our family who influenced me, each in their own special way.
Sadly all of the men in this photo are now gone, a few of them way too soon.

On the far right is my maternal grandfather, John Cardona, On the far left in the photo is his son, also John, In the center of the picture, with the bow tie and pencil-thin moustache, is my maternal grandmother’s brother, my great uncle, Carmen Donato.

Graffiti found by Shipyard Brewers inside the abandoned warehouse that is now their Brewery in Portland, Maine. Shipyard preserved the graffiti and now, nearly 25 years later, managed to find that same graffiti  artist and have him create the logo for their Monkey Fist IPA.
Good Work, Shipyard !

Two photos, my dad on the left, me on the right, each of us, I'm thinking, about the same age, early 20's. 
Happy Birthday, Al.  I don't want this day to pass without wishing my father a happy birthday on what would have been his 100th.
