Happy Father's Day!

From Brian’s autobiography assignment in 8th grade:

“Enough about me, let’s talk about my dad.  His childhood reminds me of Tom Sawyer’s.  You may be wondering why I chose to tribute him.  Well, he puts everything he’s got into everything he does.  He had a paper route that still puts a spark in his eye.  Throughout his lifetime he must have had twenty jobs.  Not because he was fired, my dad just had to keep moving.  Out of all these reasons, the main reason I wrote a tribute to my dad is because I love him.”
