Happy Father's Day

Fathers day for me is about BBQ, The US Open, and telling dads how cool they are.  My son Austin is planning to take the BBQ chores off my plate today.  He claims he's got a smoked pork rib recipe nailed.  Says he also has knack for making a great BBQ sauce.  I'm taking him up on his offer and plan to offer as much free advice as he can stand.

Then I'll offer a little more advice.

My dad was real good at watching US Opens.  Cooking, not so much.  But he was great at offering free advice on many topics.  Public speaking, fishing, and gardening were his specialties.  He did them all well and had the patience to teach.

When I need a little extra shot of patience I think of his unbelievable tolerance of just about anything.

That's dad dressed for success at the beginning of his career with Catalina.  I was about 6 weeks old.

Happy Father's Day dad.  Happy Father's Day to all the dads.

Cheers! Scott
