Life is good! My beautiful wife has already made Father's Day great. Thanks, honey, for cooking a great breakfast, for the shirts, and for getting the kids and their spouses together for lunch. Especially, thank you for the MISSISSIPPI MUD CAKE with ice cream and chocolate syrup. I may have to upgrade my plans for an evening at Krystal for our anniversary Friday! Thanks, Laura, for nominating me for the "delightful dads" contest and rounding up some votes. Spiro also looked good in that competition. I don't think that was a picture from this year. Thanks, Baron and Laura for the "Rick and Bubba" best-of CD's (sorry about ruining the book idea). Thanks, Helen, for the gift card for Red Robin. Thanks, Mark and Lindsay, for the Mountain Hardwear hiking shorts. I am truly blessed beyond what I deserve. On a motivational note, here is a quote I read recently that is a good principle for dads to pass on to kids;

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." Thomas Edison

Thank you, Thomas, for hanging in there. I am enjoying the lights. I am going to try to remember what you said and do better at trying one more time.
