Happy Father's Day

This post is dedicated to PTCruiser's number one fan, my father.

Lough Mask, County Mayo
Ireland

He came to this country as a young man, leaving all that he knew behind, taking the risk without knowing what this new land had in store for him. I hope the risk paid off for you, Dad. I know that it did for me.

As a young boy, I used to listen to my father rant about the government and how the American public simply acted like sheep and I wondered naively why he would stay here if he hated it so much. I get it now, Dad. I totally get it.

I guess conformity is just not in my genetic makeup.

I love you, Dad. Thanks for influencing who I am today.

Pt, Fathers are special people. That was a nice tribute to yours. Where was he born, if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks, freespeecher. The picture at the top of the post should give you a clue as to his birthplace.
