Tonight dad was honored for 60 years of membership in his local amateur radio group. He, of course, didnít want to go at first, not even knowing really what was in store. It was the stereotypical gathering to honor an elder, with kind words, a letter from a distant former member read aloud, cake and a plaque, followed by congratulations and handshakes. Mom figured out how to record and share video (since they were in town, signal was available) so that I experienced the evening highlights on a brief delay. Mom said he was still beaming when they got home.
