YaYa took this picture last year when PoPo caught a nice speckled trout.
As we age, we come to certain realizations. I have just realized PoPo (my dad) is the type of man every man wants to be. No. I didn't come to this realization on my own. I see things only through my eyes, but on two separate occasions this week, two friends of mine mentioned how my dad influenced their lives and showed them what it takes to be a real man. My father taught them lessons that I wasn't even aware of.
It's amazing how my father was able to influence my friends and somehow give them the tools to become real men.
