Jon was out clearing snow this morning, working hard against the freezing, blowing and drifting elements. It wasn't quite the Snow Day kids wished as today is President's Day.

I told Jon that he did a great job and deserved "the top award a dad can give to a son". "What's that?" Jon asked. I put my left arm on his left shoulder and said: "A pat on the shoulder!"
