Dad would have been 83 today. This is exactly how I remember him. Playing golf. He was an amazing athlete in his day and one of the elite runners trying to break the 4 minute mile. He died in 2000 from Diffuse Lewey Body Disease, a very rapid form of dementia. But THIS is who he really was. I just worked out that he was not much older than I am now when this photo was taken. That is truly depressing. I am back to the "old" theme again. He would have grinned and said.... well, you are rising 60, you know. He had a warped sense of humour!
