Ultimate Fathers Day

My fathers day experience was one of the best I've had. I am a father three times over. But there is nothing more special than being waken by my young eight year old, because I was taking to long to get out of bed. She has been waiting for this day for some time. Apparently she did some arts and crafts and could not wait any longer to give them to me.

She stumbles out of bed, barely awake herself, and in her hand was this gorgeous tie she pasted and cut onto a construction paper, and a cute memo pad she had printed herself for me on a school computer.

Nothing else in the world can surpass the love a child has for her or his dad. I am for ever grateful for her small but priceless gift. I love you Jamie, Your dad.

Bougus winnings!!

Once more I got the very common e mail from some foreign organization, usually from South Africa, and lately from England.
"You have been selected to win one million pounds in the state lottery". And it continues, "just send us your name, address, social security number, and bank account number so we can deposit your winnings as soon as possible."
They must think I was born yesterday, unfortunately many people actually fall for such tactics and do send their information only to realize that their back account has been drained of funds, and their identification stolen.
One has to be careful and weary of anything being given away. There is no such thing as winning something for nothing. No free rides, what you end up getting is being taken for a ride to the poor house.
Never answer any of those e mails from anyone, and I mean anyone. It is a dog eat dog world out there, and you must be on your toes at all times.
good luck.
