My dad and I kinda had a strained relationship growing up, but after I joined the Army 2 days after 9/11, and came home for a little while after all the training we started getting real close. When I went overseas, our relationship only got better and better. Now, I try and come by my folks at least once a week to just hang out, watch our Mets play, whatever. Also, whenever I get stressed out, I either hit the rifle range, or shoot some airguns in the back yard. He never liked guns, but he knows I love em, and he comes out for some trigger time every now and again. We've really been having a good time lately, and I'm glad we turned it around.
Happy Father's Day Doug, and good luck on you and your kid's next fishing trip.
