Today is an auspicious day to remember good men, fathers and one good man – my sons’ Dad. The Big Guy is a very good man and a great dad. He is also a survivor of cancer, that insidious disease . Three and a half years ago, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. Last year we were cheering him on as he crossed the finish line of the Ride To Conquer Cancer 2009, the two-day ride from Vancouver to Seattle. There were tears, cheers, and Fat Tire beer to celebrate his big ride. Chad and his dad are cycling in the Ride To Conquer Cancer 2010 this weekend. Cheers to Chad and Doug.
This year is the Big Ride Galloping Goose Trail edition with the sons and daughters-in-law. They were a happy group at the end of the trail. Here is to good men and fathers everywhere, enjoy your day.
When we do this again, the girls and I go to the spa. The boys ride with their Dad and have a couple of beers at the pub, at the end of the trail.
