Have you read this blog entry, written by a Baltimore, Maryland man, which mentions my dad? It's terrific and you'll LOVE it, but anyone who refers to Pastor Fowler as a "soft-spoken, gentle man" has clearly NOT had a spanking from him.
(I had to read that line twice. Dad's spankings were epic, the stuff of legend!)
However, soft-spoken, gentle men live longer...so ROCK ON, DAD! You make the whole family proud! Have a great birthday.
