Dad - 1978

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, my dad recently retired after 45 years in the baking business. If you’re so inclined, go out and eat a pile of carbs at lunch today in celebration. (Of course, if you’d done this before he retired he’d probably have a little more coin in the 401K and I could have gone to an ivy league college. But we’re not bitter or anything.) Anyway, I just thought this pic of Dad and me was pretty timely.

I know the financial situation is pretty bad

On a completely different topic, I hear that the economy is kind of in the toilet right now. I know the financial situation is pretty bad, but don’t worry. I’ve got a shovel. I can dig us out of this hole.

And I’m sure we’re pretty close to rock bottom, so there’s nowhere to go but up from here.

(And you can trust me — if there’s anybody who knows “rock bottom” when he sees it, it’s a lifelong Rangers fan.)

Looks like your dad needed some more coin so he could buy you a pair of pants. Or maybe that’s what the shovel is for – I can just see him shoving you out the door with a shiny new shovel telling you to go earn your own dadgum pair of shorts.

You got that right, Neil!
