Last week, I wrote about my dad as my hero, so those who saw that post know that he is no longer with us. However, I clearly remember the things he used!
And, I did. The next year, and the next year, and the next year, ad infinitum. Each year, he ate the cherries, and thanked me for the Aqua Velva. By the time I was about 10 years old, they had started to make Aqua Velva in decorative bottles, so I always looked hard to find something different. Still, every year, I bought the same 2 items.
When I grew up, married and moved away, Dad always said it wouldn't seem like Christmas without his cherries and his Aqua Velva. So, he continued to get them.
