Happy Father's Day!

And, of course to we grandfathers, great grandfathers, et. al....

It's a good day to play/work on the old ride!

Thanks for the reminder, Jack. I miss my Father. He was a good man. Gone almost 3 years now.

Yeah, me too! Mine's been gone for nearly 30 years and if still alive would be 108, still dispensing humorous wisdom with a straight face. I remember when I was 5 or 6, my aunt liked to clam, and we went to the coast to clam and we stopped at a little market, my dad gave me a few dollars and asked me to "get some shells for the clam gun". I didn't know enough to ask what caliber, but later found out a clam gun was a specially shaped shovel to going after WA state's goey-duck clams, those that can dig quite fast.

Your Dad had a dozen years on mine -- he'd be 91 now.

As for those goey-ducks, I'd never heard of them until my Sister moved out there and dated a guy who claimed to make a living digging them. Kinda like quahogs around here? Quahogs are large compared to the little-neck clams and much tougher but not nearly the size of a goey-duck. From a rowboat we'd rake them up off the harbor floor with a long-handled rake/basket we called a clam rake. They make a delicious chowder and there is a cottage industry polishing their purple shells for jewelry. My Dad had an avocation doing both the chowder and the jewelry.
