Just wanted to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, especially mine!
And to my grandfather, Pap Pap, wherever he may be:
To my mom’s father, also wherever he may be (sadly no photo here with me).
And to all the rest of my grandfathers back into family history–especially to:
(1) My great-grandfather Aniello D’Isabella, who I never got to meet but whose lack of desire to get American citizenship after leaving his southern Italian village allowed me to reclaim his Italian citizenship many years later and live here happily ever after without bureaucratic hassle; and
(2) My great-great-grandfather Giuseppe Bressi whose village I now call home.
Auguri to all you daddies out there!
