I can remember when I was a young lad knee high to a tadpole in 1968 my hero was the man of steel thats right Im talking about SUPER MAN!!!! Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. I can also remember waking up every Saturday morning to the smell freshly cooked bacon and eggs and pan cakes wafting in the air and who was standing at the stove so earling in the morning every Saturday morning doing this wonderous thing that even superman was unable to accomplish especially since this man was able to do this after getting off work at 4am from his second job just so that he could spend time with his son every Saturday morning eating bacon, eggs and pan cakes and watching the old cartoon superman. Thats right as you have already probably guessed it was my dear old Dad. Of course I didnt realize it at the time that super heros were fashioned after someone that we already knew and loved but at that time we did'nt know why. It wasn't till years later after I had realized who had taught me things like how master the art of archery or how to recognize how to recognize the difference between true North and magnectic north with nothing more than an old lensactic compass purchased from an army navy surplus store or even more important how to do the same thing with the face of your wrist watch(all depending if you were in the northern or southern hemisphere) or to do the same thing with a stick and two stones. This same person taught me how to respect the out of doors and how to survive in it not just respect it but appreciate and to love it it. Not to mention how to effectively stalk a deer ,not to kill it it for sport but to supplement the familys food source of course if it just happened to be a pope and young trophy was a plus. My Dad also taught me how to tbe patient in the quest to catch a monster CATFISH!!!!!! I didn't realize it at the time but he was teaching me so much more,,,,,, he was also teaching me what it took to suceed in life!!!! God how I miss those early Saturday mornings eating breakfast and watching superman cartoons with a true super hero. Just this past saturday morning my son of 16 years asked me why I would wake up so early every Saturday morning and fill the house with the aroma of bacon, eggs and pancakes I would simply reply with" Its time to go fishing"!!!!!! So tell me who was your hero and why??????????
