Yes — that’s my dad, happy — hard to believe from the grumpy look on his face — and he’s happy because I sent him a big box of mac-and-cheese for his birthday. Dad lives in the Czech Republic and he too has a blog, PragueWriter.com
From Dad: Post lady stopped by yesterday morning with your birthday gift. Wow, all that comfort food. Your chef friends would crack up if they knew what you sent your dad for his birthday. The really amazing thing is that the box hasn’t changed a bit in 60 years–still all that great Dow Chemical fake cheddar powder and the same great taste–when I want to go gourmet, I boil a couple of hot-dogs with the mac. Misha snapped a pic of Kraft Dinner for lunch yesterday–I look like a (slightly) less grouchy Dick Cheney.
I don’t know Dad — you and Dick could maybe go head-to-head there on the grouchiness face! Happy Birthday — glad to contribute to your preservative-levels for another year!
