    I saw that earlier in a feed I get.

    How did the photographer hold the camera steady? He must have been laughing uncontrollably. I still am.

    And you know the kid's mother was not around!

    That looks like they were with an uncle, you know they are obligated to teach boys things dads can't and grampas wont. I was always a favorite uncle.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    i remember the day after keeping an eye out on my nephew, my sister-in-law calling me up and cussing me out as hard as i’ve ever been cussed by anybody for showing my nephew how to make a flamethrower with a bottle of ether and a cigarette lighter

    to this day i remain his favourite uncle

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    My brother had 4 kids. They each have their tales of Uncle David.

    The thing that made me shine in their firmament, however, was a movie. Star Wars. When it first came out - they were desperate to see it. My brother refused to drive the mob 2 hours to Portland, then drive back late at night. So I drove down and got them, treated them to pizza & snacks, then the movie, then back to our place for a sleepover with more snacks and much screaming/giggling re-creation of the various fight scenes. I had been the 'cool uncle' before... but ever since, that's changed to 'coolest uncle ever'.

    3 out of the 4 are redheads. I'm still the only person who can tease the youngest about her freckles, and retain possession of all teeth. I was just doing that yesterday... <G>

    Now I hope to continue my formative influence... as a grandpa.

    Just before the birth of #1 - the kids gave me a t-shirt: The Best Dads Get Promoted To Grandpa

    After just under 2 years as a grandpa... I don't know if they've changed their minds about 'best dad' status... but they just gave me a NEW t-shirt:

    THEY CALL ME GRANDPA

    Because Calling Me

    PARTNER IN CRIME

    Makes Me Sound Like

    A Bad Influence

    Cool Re: Take the boys fishing!

    In some cultures, that's normal behavior, brings good luck.


    Keep calm, persistence beats resistance.
