Happy Fathers Day

To all you great dads...

My dad taught me a lot of cool stuff. He taught me how to shoot air rifles, how to shoot bows and arrows and the theory of making an English longbow from scratch. He taught me how to snare rabbits and, whether I liked it or not, how to skin and gut them.

He taught me the value of humility--usually by humiliating me in public by leaving the house in full camo gear with a carrot bag over his head. He taught me how to question what people said, how to judge people by their actions and not words. He taught me the value of hard work, self sufficiency and the importance of helping others.

I'd have grown up a different person without him. Thanks Dad :) I think ;)
