Those are among my happiest memories and now that my Dad's been gone for a little over five years I appreciate those times that we shared more than ever before. Cherish the time you have with your Dad, there's only one of him and I'm sure that I don't have to tell you that nothing can replace him! On another note though, NICE LOOKING RIBS!!!!
My dad and I every Father's Day I would buy him a bottle of tequila and we would drink it until done. He is more mellow now since he found god and is living a more sober life. He just to be out of control and is currently married with a woman my age and has kids the age of mine.
