Where's Daddy?

He [our father] got up 2 in the afternoon, and around 3 o’clock he left the house and went around the farm to pick up vegetables and loaded it into his car. He went to the market in LA where he distributed to the whole market. By midnight, he went to sleep. Because he slept most of the day, we barely saw our father.

~ Harold Muraoka
