this is my dad. his name is dale. he is usually explaining something with great vigor. as is the case in this photo. of all the things in this world that I am thankful for, he is pretty flipping high on the list. yup. right up there with coffee. just had a great visit with him that involved good food, cutting down trees, improv truck repair, the drinking of wine, and a plethora of rockus banter. good times. to one of the best. thanks for everything dad. cheers!
