It is a father who has a son like him for sure, as we say in Sweden, and next generation will still know of wise benefit of the ABBA!

I get the bumpy goose at this time.

Welfare!

 

P.S. Does Mr Sammy also admire the sequin? I ask for a friend.

Got it --- W.S. Merwin is one my favorite poets --- would have been cool if there was a Tweedy/Miller connection.
