...and the same for you!

I always wanted to have a family, so I got it going good by my early twenties, with three ornery kids! :-)

I was surprised that in my late thirties, when I was divorced, I found the love of my life.... and she also had three teenagers!!! Our house was challenging to say the least, with the kids having not a single "weak personality" in the bunch!

I love them all, and while three have their own father... I found that I could also had a positive and rewarding relationship with them. I was raised by a great step-dad, so I think that opened my heart was open to the others, without the feeling I needed to share DNA with them. I'm glad for that opportunity.

I won't say that fatherhood has not been without some very challenging and frustrating times... but I'd gladly do it all over again! :-)

Happy Father's Day guys!

My kids and my wife all wished me Happy Father's Day. I had to fix my own breakfast but it was cooked the way I wanted it.

I wished my son a Happy Father's Day for the first time, I wish I could see him but he has to work today and I have things I need to do here.

I suppose I should get dressed and go out and work on a lawnmower. Then I might fire up the Allis Chalmers XT190 and mow down some of my lawn with the 16 foot Bush Hog.

Hopefully I'll get around to working on my El Camino before the day is over.

happy late dada day guys!

I parked it on the couch and watched the nba finals and felt great doing nothing but relaxing and playing with the daughter. Ate at a really good buffet that serves really good sushi/chinese. I stuck with the sushi and king crab legs.

On the day when people are honoring fathers, inside I was just feeling appreciative of having a beautiful wife and daughter by my side.
