Happy 84th Pop

My Dad, Paul Everett Nelson Senior, is 84 today, December 27, 2012. A few years ago I wrote a haibun that started as one of my reminiscences of a couple of our early experiences at Comiskey Park, the home of our beloved White Sox until 1990. Happy Birthday Pop!

      Fine poem for your pop, better than errorless play at short stop. kjm

    Kevin, thanks for the ongoing look at my blog and the kind comments. “It’s later than you think” is something Pop liked to quote a lot. I should call him today. Happy 2013.
