I’m feeling kind of melancholy these days as one of my daughters nears another milestone birthday.

The feeling hit over the weekend while we were out to lunch, and “Surfin’ USA” came on the radio. You know the song — the catchy Beach Boys tune that makes it feel like summer even when it’s 12 degrees with 25 inches of snow on the ground. That song will always remind Rick and me of her.
