Happy Father's Day

I would like to wish a very Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there, especially mine, who has been so supportive of BISCo.   

Here we are on Block Island many years back, before BISCo. was even an idea.    On this same trip my father slipped and fell into the pond near the house.   I stumbled across this poem and it couldn't be more fitting.  

Daddy Fell Into the Pond
by Alfred Noyes

Everyone grumbled.  The sky was gray.
We had nothing to do and nothing to say.
We were nearing the end of a dismal day,
And there seemed to be nothing beyond,
Daddy fell into the pond!

And everyone's face grew merry and bright,
And Timothy danced for sheer delight,
"Give me the camera, quick, oh quick!
He's crawling out of the duckweed."  Click!

Then the gardner suddenly slapped his knee,
And doubled up, shaking silently,
And the ducks all quacked as if they were daft
And it sounded as if the old drake laughed.

O, there wasn't a thing that didn't respond
Daddy fell into the pond!
