A Father Who is Strong and Sensible

Happy Father's Day!

I just spoke to Old Bean and thought I'd write a few words about him today. I wont focus on the more amusing stories about mental math quizzes (buying refrigerators & trolls), telling me to take out the trash during Hurricane Bob, or even the rake chasing incident ...

My father is someone great - he has confidence, skill in the most specialized tasks (automotive/carpentry) and a kind heart (random acts of kindness). And for better more than for worse, I've inherited his appetite (he eats more than anyone I know - ate six of my cupcakes during Tksgiving) and his odd sense of humor.
