Meet my Dad, Ben. He worked hard all his life as a fruit and produce salesman, so we always had that good fresh food around the house and I got used to eating it at a young age. He worked into his late 60's for his brother-in-law, until he was forced into retirement. That wasn't the life for him, though, and he got a job bagging groceries at a local supermarket where he was one of the most popular people around. He worked there well into his 80's until he had a heart attack. He drove himself to the hospital, stopping at home to make sure his dog was fed and had someone to care for her. He was a crusty old guy, and one of his favorite things was driving. As he got older he always said he would live until he couldn't drive anymore. In March, 2002 he got in an accident, totaled his car, and lost his license. He was 92 at the time and he was quite prophetic. He broke his hip May 25, had a heart attack and died on May 29, 2002. I started this painting the day he died.
