father's day.

Thankfully I've met a few good fathers along the way, not having the good fortune to experience a good father of my own.

I've observed men in the world who try to get it right with their own children. and really, that is all any of us can do. make the effort. diligently. establish your own code. live by it.

So to those dads I know that want(ed) to be the best dad they can be ... thanks, recognition, appreciation, kudos. you give the fatherless hope. and you give those fathers-in-waiting a model to aspire to.

Dads I admire for giving it their best:

Floyd Carter
Uncle Alan
Uncle Steve
PJ
Grampa Art
John
Aaron & Luke
Paul W.
Johnny S.
Kelly
David W.

enjoy the commercially crafted beauty of your day, and remember we dig you the other 364 just as much.

Still, without a good father of your own, you have the courage to pursue your dream to live in France. I say that somewhere, you got the encouragement from someone. It is most exciting!

Nice father's day piece. I just don't have it in me to wrack my brain to name a few. I have hopes for some, but.....
