Can it be?
Is it possible?
My son is going on his first date.
Can you remember the American Flyer sled, the bicycle, and the baseball glove
we got you for Christmas?
Now you are going on your first date.
There is nothing I can tell you.
You know more about that stuff than I did at your age when my father coached me.
All I can tell you is drive carefully.
Enjoy the candlelight dinner,
and each other's company as much as you can.
I will try not to stay up but I want to tell you how proud you have made your Mother and I.
You have brought us closer together and have made me love your Mother even more.
Thank you, My son, My son.
