My father. My role model. My hero.

Before a spinal cord AVM ruptured causing paralysis from the waist down (T11), my father was an amazing high school athlete.
Just look at the air/hang time he got!

My father. My role model. My hero.

And you’ve got to admit he’s very handsome☺️I love that mole.

1) High school photo

2) My father on the right side. He was an excellent golfer. Despite his paraplegia, he taught me how to play golf. Aside: his chemistry teacher is on the far left. They were buddies while my dad was in school and to this day remain very close.

3) In the Bahamas (drinking under 21 y/o legally🤭) with my dad in 1995 or 1996?

4) August 3, 1974 - My parents wedding day. My father was 21 y/o and my mother was only 18 y/o😳I purposely cropped my mother out. They had some time together before my sister Lindsay was born on 6/20/76 and then I followed on 6/18/77 - not even 1 year later (we’re Irish twins)

41 years ago I was born on Fathers Day (tomorrow is my 41st birthday)
Happy Fathers Day to the best man I’ve ever known. Thank you for being there for me when my mother abandoned our family. You were so shattered yet you went with me to college interviews and “showed up” for me all these years.

My ride for the next 3 months - a Kia Soul. It easily fit my 5 large pieces of luggage and the stroller with room to spare👌🏼

Miss our sister time and traveling so much right now @lmh0620 🙁🇩🇪🇵🇱
What’s next??
1) another trekking adventure this fall with @gadventures I’m hoping to go back to Nepal and hike the beautiful Annapurna range🏔
... then ...
I’m thinking Croatia & Montenegro (I want to avoid countries on the Euro; so much cheaper. And I’ve already been to Bulgaria and Romania although I’m not opposed to visiting again) Anyone want to join me April/May 2019 @jojespalm @krommicon ?? #hinkleholiday #berlin #berlingermany #neptunefountain

Most likely you don’t know that Anthony Bourdain is (was) a favorite of mine.
I don’t like “cooking shows” but Anthony Bourdains show over the years was more about eating while exploring/traveling; not focused on food.
I loved watching his antics.
His laughter.
His interactions with the locals everywhere he journeyed.
His desire to find authenticity in his travels.
Although he was a world class chef, he rarely wore that hat. Instead he opted to enjoy what mostly ordinary folks (and more recently, trained chefs like his friend Eric Ripert) cooked for him.
And of course there were also many vivid, “caught-on-camera” glimpses of his well known overindulgences (🍸🚬💊)
I almost never agreed with his very liberal political views but that didn’t turn me away from watching the show; I loved watching despite all that. He inspired me to travel and provided a ton of knowledge about how to travel.
As his show evolved (and improved in my opinion) over the years, he opened up about his abuse of drugs/alcohol and his desire to be healthier. He seemed to cutback slightly on drinking and he said he started working out. He explained that he wanted to be healthier for his family/daughter. I’ll admit I haven’t watched his program on CNN in > 1 year but I thought he was doing well.
******************************************************
It just goes to show that you never can tell - mental illness does not discriminate. It can tear anyone apart. I do not post things like this often but I know what it’s like to “be there” and I’m sad that Bourdain didn’t get the help he so obviously needed. Unfortunately for Anthony, his path ended much too early😢😢😢😢😢😢
******************************************************
I am grateful for life.

These frequent fliers are ready to go back home to St. Pete. They had so much fun staying with G’ma @gracebylebyl while mommy went overseas. And it was great to see JLou, Jeremy and @netty.hermann
