Tomorrow, it will go back to Crown....thank you for letting me do this for a couple of days! It's always fun...

Before I go....a quick story. When I coached my first baseball game, my Dad was there to support me. We didn't win...we lost in extra innings....but he gave me advice that day that would stick with me through the coming years of my professional life. We made a couple of base running errors that cost us the game and he told me after it was over...

Son, just take care of the little things and you will be alright.

Fast forward eight years to the last state tourney I coached in. We won our first quarter final game in school history by "doing the little things." After it was over, he put his arm around me....told me how proud he was of me...and jokingly reminded me that he was the reason I was there....because I took his saying to heart.

Well, I'm where I'm at today....because my Dad modeled taking care of the little things for me when I was a kid....and when my daughter is born...I will continue taking care of the little things, just like my Dad did....

Happy Father's Day!
Thank you for leading the countdown, coach. It was a true pleasure to read this today. It may sound strange, but congratulations on your last father's day as "not a father." I do know how else to say it. I'm sure it will be much more exciting next year!! Big changes lie ahead!

Just thought I would quickly point out that this year's countdown is far exceeding last year's record setting pace. We did not reach post # 23861 until August 30th last year. I apologize for not being around as much this year, but keep up the great work, friends! Christmas in July lies ahead!!

Not that I want it in the house, but at least I would know what I was dealing with. I don't have a clue what kind it is or how it got in the house to begin with and that is what has me so scared. Thank you, everyone, for all the thoughts and prayers!!!

I hope they can get out there tomorrow!!!!!! You're braver than me. I'd be sleeping in a tent outside!!!!!

good idea! If you have a tent sent it up in the house and sleep in there, no snakes can get into a well zipped up tent.
