Happy fathers day guys.

Im not one to mention it to random groupings of friends, but I say it here because the fathers on here have helped me be a better father. I've learned a lot from you guys on fatherhood and just being a better person, and felt it right to say it on here and say thanks for making me a better dad. And that goes for many of you on here, not just the Dads.

So, thanks!

Pretty much. I don't think that policy works.

It's just one day you can't drive. Like if it ends in 1 or 2, you can't drive Monday. So for sure the rich have two cars.

Also, there's like a million heliports around the city. That's how the super rich get around. It's nuts.

crime in Brazil is nuts. Be very very careful.

Still thinking and smiling about being at game 5. I was really conflicted if it was worth all that money, but some good friends convinced me to do it, and frankly I had won the money in a hockey pool, so it was easier to justify.

Hours after this game, we all heard the news about Bourdain, and his books in many ways changed my life+my desires to reach for experiences in life.
As a good friend said to me last night, life is pretty much fcked 8 ways until Sunday. Find any happiness you can.

Life is way too short guys, the next time you have a decision like I had, just go for it. Enjoy it while you can!

So true. Life is about experiences and memories. Money means nothing at the end of the day. My dad lived his life that way. Some people would talk and say why do you have to travel to overseas 2-3 times a year? Well he enjoyed his life and ended up dying relatively young and Iím glad he experienced all the places and memories he had. Time is something we donít have a lot of. We need to enjoy every minute. Iím glad you experienced that.

Thank you, Dave!
I've been repeating "benign be fine" in my head for almost a month now.

It just hit me, and had to re-read your first post....it took a month to confirm it was benign.
Holy crap, congrats on not completely losing it! well done, thats a deserving fathers day you got coming up.

That's amazing news Dale! I honestly can't even imagine what you must have been going through, so the relief you are feeling now must be immense.

Holy crap Dale, Iím so happy for your and your fanilyís relief. It must have been so difficult and traumatic for the past year (and getting rear-ended is no picnic either!)

I hope the surgery is unremarkable and everything can go back to normal soon.
