Happy Father's Day!

Lake of the Clouds. Check out the 1000 px version.

Enough time goes by, and there are ways that divorce can become a good thing. I am lucky enough to have not one, but two, father figures in my life at this time - and both have provided me immeasurable support through both the good times and the bad.

For my working class hero IBEW step-dad John, out on the road and always remembering to call on my birthday and other special days, a very heartfelt thank you for all the "manly man" help you have sent my way. Lately it's been about the cars, either fixing them up or bringing them back from Minnesota. :-) I really don't know where I would be without all your kindness through the years, and I am forever grateful for having you in my life.

And for my Dad - the emotional support you have provided to me cannot be overstated. These past couple of years have been tough as you know; even though I was very blessed to be doing what I was doing, for the most part I was alone out here. The times I got a call that said "hey, great post", well, it got to the point where that really meant the world to me. It really did. Still does, actually. Thank you for being there for me to talk to - to discuss events, sound out ideas, or just to listen to my fears. I couldn't have made it through without you.

Both you guys have been so good to me. Thank you so very, very much.

With all my heart - have a very Happy Father's Day!
