Father's Day

"It's easier to build a man than to mend a boy"
- Charles Gavin
"The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arm over his shoulder and says, 'Daddy, I need to ask you something,' he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan." - Garrison Keillor  
{JFK and Caroline aboard the "Honey Fitz", 1963, shot by Cecil W. Stoughton}

Happy Father's Day to all the sandcastle creators, bug catchers, kite fliers, snowmen builders, monster chasers, storytellers, grilled cheese makers, and reluctant tea party guests.  The world always looked best from your shoulders.
