Happy Father’s Day …

… to three of the best Dads.

My late father-in-law, Nick, pictured here with Basil circa 1959 or ’60;

My dad, Mike Salvatore, here with me in 1968;

Me and Dad in 1968. I am 2 here. And no, I don't know why Dad looks so serious, but I love that even then he was still wearing his favorite 'do: The DA. (And I am rocking a pretty cool hair bow!)

And the one who is sleeping in this morning — Basil — with our daughter, Catherine, in the summer of 1996. I just love the expressions on their faces.

    In honor of all the dads out there celebrating today, and especially these three who have helped shape the course of my life and Catherine’s. Happy Father’s Day.

  3. His favorite “do” now is mostly bald!! What about the white socks!

    Happy Father’s Day Bill. Catherine is very lucky to have such a great dad. We love you like a son. Have a terrific day. You deserve it.
