I AM ONE PROUD FATHER!

Hi folks,

I am absolutely beaming these days! My oldest daughter Britney and my son-in-law Ray Robinson just released their book to help thyroid sufferers, my youngest daughter Sienna and my son-in-law Jason Cox keep growing the cutest grandson in the world, and then today... my son Mike was just named the Associate of the Year for Full-Time Employees by his boss at the premier jewelers, Rogers and Hollands. They award one part-time award and one award for full-time employees. Out of their chain of 80 stores! Mike nailed the full-time employee award! He works at the Ft. Wayne store and is always their leading salesperson. Also, just recently, Mike was awarded his 7th Platinum Sales Award in a row for his sales performance. I have to say that Mike got his brains from his mom Mary--the reason I know this is because I still have all of mine...


(Here's a photo of me and Mike getting made-up before one of our two appearances on MSNBC-TV for baseball. He was in the eighth grade then. He's a lot bigger now! Towers over me.)



CONGRATULATIONS, MIKE. Your mom and I are so darned proud of you, son! I'm so proud of all of my children!

(Please forgive a dad for bragging on his kids... but that's what we're supposed to do, right?)

Blue skies,
Les
