This is one of my favorite photos of fatherhood. This is actually my Dad with my son, Ellis. Every time I see this photo it reminds me of South Dakota Saturdays when I was growing up. A little yard work meant the possibility of getting to drive the back roads to the dump when I was 10 or 11 and maybe an ice cream cone. Not such a bad way to spend a Saturday in exchange for what I would guess was very little labor. Dad, just so you know, I am a much harder worker on my own lawn and garden now. All of those Saturdays weren’t wasted.
Happy Father’s Day!
