Cheer me up

Today I went to visit my Dad, who is...well...basically not there any more. He sleeps a lot, and scoots around the facility in a wheelchair, and is quite healthy in body, but doesn't remember anyone anymore, and doesn't talk. Needless to say, it's depressing.

1) if you've got a live parent who's not estranged for valid reasons, please send them a note or call them. Just for me, 'cause even if I can't, you can.
2) post something cheerful 'cause I need it.

(Note: he's had a good life, lived fully, and is well cared for. It's still sad. I don't need "sorry for you" notes, but something ridiculous.)
