    Well done @G.T.

    Long ago my 3rd grade class had a bully. Kid stayed back a year and was huge anyway. One day my best friend and I realized he can't take all 7 of us at once .So the next time he tried it we all walked up and I told him to walk away. He decided to charge the 6 of us who stepped in. That didn't go well for him. We all ended up at the office but he was the only one punished and it never happened again .

    I don't know if any of you watch Billions on Showtime but the third season is fucking epic. The first two seasons were awesome but it keeps getting better and better. Highly recommended if you get a chance.

    My midlife crisis purchase was a fishing boat. 21' center console, deep V for the ocean. I fuckin' killed it last year. So many fish my wife was giving them away... and I hope that trend continues this year.

    So how many hummingbirds did you catch, why, and what did you do with them?

    I caught yellowtail... and bonito... and tuna... and barracuda. No hummingbirds. I think they shy away from the ocean. Not enough flowers and such.

    Today, 13 years ago my daughter was born. This is my message to her.


    Katelyn,


    You are the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me. 13 years ago today, Mommy gave me the most wonderful gift that I have ever received by giving me the opportunity to be your Daddy. The first time I looked at you and you reached out and grabbed my finger and held onto it, it was like a lightning bolt struck me. I didn’t put you down for almost five hours after they handed you to me. Seeing your face was the most beautiful face I had ever seen in my life. You were so small and I knew my life had changed forever. Other than Mommy… I didn’t know that I could love someone with such an unconditional love until you came into my life.

    Watching you grow up through the years has been one of the greatest joys a Father could have. Seeing the world through the eyes of my daughter gave me a new perspective of what life should be.

    Watching you open your first presents for Christmas, dressing you up for Halloween, watching you hunt Easter eggs, watching you catch snow on your tongue for the first time when it snowed, seeing you run with with your little straight arm run will forever be etched in my mind.

    Taking you to your first day of school seems like just yesterday. And now I have a hard time accepting that you are growing up into a beautiful, intelligent young woman… I couldn’t be more proud of what you have accomplished and who you have become. You are the most caring and compassionate person that I’ve ever known. You care about everyone and that is one of the best traits that you possess.

    It is hard for a Father to watch his daughter grow up. I miss being able to carry you around in my arms, showing you things for the first time, playing “diamond cutter” with you. I’ll never be able to do those things with you again and that is hard for me to accept but as a Father, I have too.

    But I’m so proud of you! Anything you set out to accomplish, you are capable of achieving those goals and you have proven that time and again. I know sometimes you doubt that you can do certain things but you always find a way to pursue your goals and succeed every time.

    Being a teenager can be hard at times but you will always overcome any obstacle in your way. You always have. There will be hard times during the next few years but you will prevail. Just remember one thing. If you didn’t experience a bad day, you would never know what a good day felt like. Just know… I will always be here for you.


    You are my life.


    I love you with all my heart and always will.


    Daddy

    I'm not 40, but my daughter is 14. I wanted to tell you that what you wrote brought tears to my eyes thinking about my own daughter.

    Mine too my friend. This is really hard on me. But watching your child grow up into a wonderful person is what we all strive for.

    It's really hard, but it's also really uplifting and awe-inspiring as well. Knowing that Dad had a hand in creating this good and wonderful human being is greater than any tangible reward. It's how we live on well after we hear the footsteps on the roof for the last time.

    How are you dealing with changing the channel for each TV individually? are they all running feeds from different systems and they are more or less just a monitor?

    Haven't figured out the remote and HDMI matrix switching yet. For now the main tv has a playstation hooked up to it and the two top TVs are running Fire TV boxes. The TV remotes connect to each TV via bluetooth so no cross talk. The Amazon Fire TV remotes are box specific. I will be putting a cabinet in the closet for all of this and then have a 4x4 HDMI matrix switcher to move inputs around. We'll see what else I need after that.
