Proud Papa

Good Afternoon Folks:

I, with your permission, am going to depart from my "Preaching" for once in order to indulge myself in a little bit, no make that a lot, of Paternal pride.

Our youngest child, Christopher, has just signed a contract for the publication of his first book, and my wife and I are just bursting with pride.

I should hastily add this disclaimer i.e. My son, who is very talented in several areas, got none of his talents from me. My wife is the smart one in our family, but the important thing is that he has these talents and he has put them to work, in the writing of his book, and I'm so very glad he has.

It has Been suggested by a few people, mostly co-workers over the years, that I should write a book, but, due to a lack of talent, and a probable overabundance of laziness, I never have. This exercise I call a Blog is a very poor substitute, and has, in fact, been perhaps accurately called "Crap", and it probably is.

But at least, thanks to our Son, there is now one writer in the family.

There are at least 2 writers in the family. I enjoy reading your blog. I check it at least once every two weeks. I want to make sure I don't miss a post. God bless you and your family. Let us know when the book is published.

We're all so proud of Christopher! And don't sell yourself short, Dad, you're writing here has been a very pleasant discovery for me. Plus, it's a cinch, none of us kids would ever have accomplished a tenth of what we have in life without the wonderful educations we received growing up. That mostly came from the influence of you and Mom, not he public schools.

But I digress :-) This one's about Christopher's book! LOL So I wanted to drop off a link to it for your readers. I've been particularly thrilled to read the highly-positive reviews it's getting on Amazon!
