On The Road With Father Bell

June 17, 2016
   Thinking about my father today. Thankful for all he gave me. He loved road trips and he passed that on to me, and both my kids, in turn, love the road as well, so that is a blessing, to me. He was truly a man of the road, and as I say in my book, he was The 66 Kid.

And, we have a new father visiting with us, that would be this guy:

   He and his lovely bride Amy flew in from Thailand this week and we went over to Grandma Betty's yesterday so she could meet her great granddaughter:

Great Grandmother Betty Radina and Harper

Harper's mother is an amazing cook and I got a total treat this morning:

   Great treats and great kids. One of the benefits of being a dad.
