During the past weekend, I had the opportunity to see two men interacting with their sons. What made it a unique experience for me was that I knew those dads when they were the same age as their sons. Time has a way of flying by, but I tend to only be reminded of it when seeing other people's children or parents. As I watched Chris and Randy interacting with their sons, I recalled the boys they once were and the silly and fun things they did that made them so endearing. But, now I view them as men with dreams and responsibilities, joys and sorrows, and sons who truly enjoy their company. And their sons are neat people, too. Teo has a clever wit, practical mind and mature outlook. D.J. is creative and intent on carrying on a multi-generational family hobby. So, congrats, Chris and Randy, for becoming the good men you are today and for being such great dads.
