Happy fathers day..to young dads:

To young dads ESP.:as a dad who loves his's kids so very much, let me just encourage new or young fathers...want to be a GREAT DAD? Well who doesn't. The single best thing you can do to be a SUPER DAD is to love your wife always and to work on your marriage more consistently than your KLR... I am 58 my 2 sons and 2 daughters are super adults with kids of their own but they lived through he'll when their dad worked so hard making $$ that he left go of his marriage..it remains my single biggest regret in life. God has blessed me with an incredible second crack at marriage some 17 years ago. Sherry is an incredible critical care nurse,stepmom,daughter,lover and MY WIFE!! My life is good--but if you,reading this, even think about divorce I will find you and bend your spokes!!

I think this is great advice. And I will follow it. Happy Father's Day brother (and everybody else). This is my last one as a one-kid Dad.



I don't smile a lot, but I was happy, I swear. My daughter takes after me as you can see. Most pics we have my wife looks like she won the lottery and my girl and I look like we're about to crack your cranium with a crowbar.

No MC's for me today.

:Thanks LJ,
If my story can help one person it is worth sharing it. As dad's we sometimes want to be the BEST DAD THAT EVER LIVED ...that really was me @23 years old having been raised in a certain denomination protestant church(which will go unnamed)...but the point is I thought that I had to do everything perfect(and sin-less !). Ironically, that pursuit left me running on empty...
I have learned that kids need us to just be there--period. Everything else you do for your kids comes AFTER you have taken care of self and spouse.

Done preaching.

My girl reeled in her first fish today (nice bluegill) and fished with a real hook and worms. And no one is blind. Casting 15 feet into the wind with an open bail reel!

And I caught three including a nice bass.
