    I want to wish a Happy Fathers day to eveyone on this board. I really think Fathers Day should be moved to Super Bowl Sunday--just sort of merge the two.

    My dad is 83 this year and he is still doing well, My second dad, is my father in law and he is in his late 60's--cool as can be. He was an immigrant to this country, leaving Cuba in 1960 as a teenager, with a teenage bride, very little money and with little or no English skills. He and his wife came to the US and he began working two jobs and taking English classes at night. His wife ( my mother in law) did the same. Once he got the basics of English, he took college classes at night and on weekends. He eventually got his Engineering degree and became a very successful aerospace engineer and his wife eventually became a VP at a national bank. They are retired and live in South Florida, where they are very well off. They could lead a life of luxury, but they spend most of their time doing charity work at the local hospital, church and at a teenage crisis center. They are very humble and they love this country.

    Have a good one eveyrone

    That's a great quote BTW Keith, though I won't say it to my parents because my mom will cry. See, it's true.

    I think you may have become an accidental daddy a few days ago.
