This week, David, a friend from many years ago lost his dad. We are all getting older that this sort of thing is happening more and more.
Also this week, my friend Brad penned another blog post that took be three days to get up the nerve to read. He has a way of jerking moisture from around my eyes, so I have to prepare. You can read about promises here: http://www.rapideyereality.com/archives/2011/07/25/promises/. I didn’t cry this time, but it was still a good read.
On Friday, Dr. K and I will ride our bikes hundreds of miles in the 24 Hours of Booty charity bike ride to raise money that will defeat the bastard disease (brain cancer) that killed her dad 4 years ago.
I’ve got no point except that it is good to sit and think about all of the great dads and the great things that they do.
