Her mother must be a very attractive woman. We know she didn't get that cute face from you. I got 4 years before that milestone. Then you can pass on the shotgun and chair to me.

Just remember, with boys you only have to worry about one boy. With daughters you have to worry about them all. My girls are all growed up so I've been able to retire the ash stick I used to keep by the door. She's kinda young, You must have started late, Huh? I'm 42 and my youngest is her age.

She is my youngest... I have two older boys..... On a day I turn 54 I am lucky. One boy struggled with ADHD and a learning disability and just finished his freshman year at Curry College and started on the Varsity Lacrosse team.... My middle boy was elected captain of his Lacrosse team at Winchester High...the only Junior elected to the All state team... and his coaches tell me he is a shoe in for High School All-American next year.... Every day I come home he has letters from Colleges... for Football as well. ... a 17 year old with 4.5 speed. Last year and a Tuna... These will be my only personal posts ...back to flyfishing after.

John I have put three kids in college. I could have had a great flats boat with the money I've spent on their education. However, I would much rather do that then have the flats boat. FishHawk

I'll second Chris' statement on raising girls

I raised 3 and it takes a big toll on you and wears on you. Although I'm only in my 40's I'm getting AARP literature sent to me and Denny's want me to dine before 4:30 to qualify for my discount. When I wade out into the river young men ask if I need a hand getting out, and some guy tried to sell me on the benefits of pre-paid hospice care the other day. At least now I can act cantankerous and strange and folks just sort of smile at me. But I still have my whuppin stick close by. Them boys never quit knockin on the door. And past 7:30 too when a guy is tryin to get some sleep! Just look at Striblue's picture. Why, he's probably only 35 but look what that lovely young daughter has done to him!

So it`s not just your flies that turn out beautiful! You must be a proud father. Fresh back from the wedding of daughter # 2 this weekend, 2 down and 1 to go. See there is a reason my hair is turning gray and falling out, but I wouldn`t trade one minute of it.

You're also gonna need one o'them big strawbrim farmer hats and a wheat stalk to go with the shotgun!

Funny thread John you are blessed with some very good looking and successful children. I am sure not luck either. My 15 yr. old daughter just got her driving permit yesterday and the rest of what little hair I had is now falling out. She just started high school last year and now driving......what next? She was here for the month of June and half of July and it was a joy to have her around too bad I had to work every single damn day. She is great and I love her to death. You have plenty of reason to be proud, you have a fine bunch of "kids", I will not be showing my daughter the picture of your youngest son however, for obvious reasons . She would come unglued seeing that stud!

Sure thing, Tom. I'll have all 4 of the squatters out by the time I'm your age. Bless you.

I always liked Clint Easwood's line in Pale Rider after he, The Preacher, Finished thumping a gang of thugs... " There's nuthin' like a good piece of hickory".
