I don't know why all my friends used to call my dad "Big Jim." I think Jarrod, who my dad always calls Josh, was the first one that started calling him that. Then Josh, who my dad calls Jarrod, started calling him that too...


Dad, I had a great time on vacation with you. You didn't teach me how to play craps, but I probably didn't need to know anyway. During that split second between when you asked me to go and the moment I said I would go, I knew that I would regret not going. Glad I didn't have to find that out...

And I promise Dad, I am writing about Bonneville. I was going to try and unveil the story for you birthday, but it isn't good enough yet to publish. I don't want you to call me and tell me that it was good. I want you to call me and say, "Damn son, that was a f'ing good story!"
