Happy Fathers' Day

Today I remember my father, Dick Hull, who went to be with Jesus in 2011. A year ago I made a website, as my dad's last request, dedicated to my father's high school football team. In 1947, the Okmulgee Bulldogs, from a town of 30,000 people, won the Oklahoma Class A Football title, 14-6, over Frederick at a game played at Owen Field in Norman.

Dad went on to Okla. St. where he met my mom, Shirley, got married and then served our country in the Air Force during Korea.

Dad taught me fishing, one of my favorite pastimes, and I still have much of his tackle and rods. I will use it again in July when I go with the family to northern Wisconsin.

Today I get to spend the day with my boys, Joel and Max, likely on the golf course where we all excel and have fun together.

Yesterday, was a day with the boys, my daughter Sylvia, her husband Jack, and my grandkids, Seth and Olivia in Mountain View. We all watched Max, now a senior in high school, and the summer version of the Elk Grove Thundering Herd baseball team. They played at two really unique baseball facilities at Bellarmine College Preparatory School and Valley Christian High School in San Jose.

It's been a great Fathers' Day weekend. Remember your dads, living or not, in some way today.
