Books and coffee. That’s what Dad said life was coming down to. He had made quips like this before, back 20 years ago when he would wander into a room and let everyone know what he was thinking. For instance, he would flop down in his blue recliner and hold out his hand with his palm facing downward and say, “Me and my yellow dog. That’s what it’s all come down to, me and my yellow dog.” I suppose he wanted me to comment on the fact that there was no yellow dog next to his chair. There was no yellow dog anywhere in his life. He petted only the air.
