Hey all. Since there are numerous fathers here, and I have yard work to do, I thought this might be a more efficient way to get this to everyone.
Just want to wish you all a Happy Father's Day!
It is a pleasure to know you gents and to get to read about you and your kids.
And yes, that means the victories as well as the trials and tribulations.
I can't imagine how I would have turned out without MY dad. I don't think I would have been a bad person, but I know that I am a better person/man/father because of him. I got my sense of family and loyalty from him. He showed me the meaning of sacrifice and how there are many things that are more important than ME.
He was firm, but always loving. Hell, he still tells me to be careful, every time we are talking about me working out or taking a trip. Drives me nuts...lol. If I haven't learned to be careful in the last 42 years, it ain't happening.
Anyway... Happy Father's Day!
2 days early (fixed)
