“Happy Birthday, Storm”


(August 20, 2019)

our dad was flying

‘hurricane hunter’ today

our course – name is ‘storm’*

*(Actually it’s his middle name, but for all practical purposes Storm is The Third Richards’ legal name. I was mildly surprised when I found out his daughter knew the real “given” first name (hint: one of the names of a legendary Irish king). When asked if she knew, she delivered the nomen with all proper derision. He’s the only one of us three with an actual nickname. He’s got a good bit of “only’s” to his credit, and perhaps one day his daughter and his niece will get told as many of them as I can conjure – errr, remember.)
