OT: Happy Father's Day!

I'm going to be settling into my chair later, lasagna and homemade apple pie in hand...all the while watching motocross on tv. It doesn't get much better than this.

I think the new fishing pole my boys gave me just might be a hint as to how they want to spend the day...

Out of my 3 kids, only my Son, 8 yo, wished me a Happy Father's Day... My wife let him know it was FD this morning when I got home from work.
My oldest daughter, 15 yo, would celebrate Fathers Day ONLY if I was crucified & dying on a cross somewhere. She UTTERLY despizes me. I don't agree w/ her lifestyle - getting high, smoking cigarettes, "putting out" to the boys, refusing to lift a finger to help anybody.
My next daughter, 13 yo, only likes me when it suits her needs.
So much for my "Father Know's Best" hope of a home life...

We should ALL be thankful of having been blessed with children.

Think about it (from a father's perspective): single speed tranny = no shifting and no sudden unexpected movements; shaft drive (BIGGIE!) = no chain for the little one to get caught up in; no foot controls (all on the handlebars) = feet only have 1 I repeat 1 purpose (keep from falling) and it gears their hand eye coordination for both hands (good for when they move up to a clutch)....oh, and also, throttle limiter adjustable with a screwdriver and open end wrench. (not to mention only 80 lbs, low seat height, and looks REALLY cute up next to my WR.......)

Just so you don't feel like the lone ranger........I understand that 14yrolds to ???? act like they have been possesed!! Mine is in the throws of the same possesion. Wild personality changes etc. AT LEAST my daughter still loves to ride and is willing to get along with her old man if only for the weekends. But at least I have that.
