So my dad, what can i say, when i was younger I played baseball, and he became my teams coach, hockey, he woke up early all winter long to take me to games, and became my coach, he went skiing once loved it so much he took lessons then taught me, we went away every march break to different mountains every year.
One day i went over to his place and he asked how my "shaving thing" was going, I laughed told him it was doing great dad thanks, he asked how big a puck of those soaps were, and putting my fingers together showed him... he left the room, and came back with this
           
for no other reason then he thought i would like it,... and i do

thanks Dad cant thank you enough for being part of my life and helping me become the man i am
   

So thats my story, how about your story Gents, have you ever got something that made you remember why people are so great, whether it be from another memeber a family member or a complete stranger,.. cause the best piece in my den doesnt cost the most,.. but it certainly means the most

Tugging at my heart, James! I'm so glad you have your Dad and friend. I talked to my Dad tonight and many similar thoughts came to mind as we caught up on the phone and looked forward to our next get together. Cherish your loved ones.

Thanks guy, Im lucky to live around the corner from my dad, he winters in florida now so i only have him in the summer, but we still get to have lots of fun when he is here, sharing each others interests, even if he does shave with an electric lol, but surely someone else out there has something nice that has happened to them, even if it was a small thing, a blade sampler, something they thought was really great
