Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Thanks, I've been looking for that video for a while now. I had it bookmarked before the last computer crash I couldn't find it after I got everything up and running again.

I saw the Dick & Rick Hoyt DVD. I was a blubbering mess through a good part of it. I think I need to get that DVD to have at home. If I ever start to feel sorry for myself or feel like I can't accomplish something I just need to slide that in and watch it.

BTW... that man is an ANIMAL (in a good way). WOW!!
