Super Parents

parents of the yearFor your consideration…

May I submit a nomination for the
2015 Parents of the Year?

I know it’s early yet, but I believe this couple from Fayetteville, North Carolina is a serious contender…and I say this without my typical sarcasm or sass.

Why do I hold them in such high esteem?

When grainy, black-and-white video of an electronics store robbery was broadcast on their local TV station on New Year’s Eve, this man and woman recognized two of the burglars as their 14- and 16-year old sons…

And actually turned them in to police!

How many people today can say they would do the same?  Make their kids face up to their crime?  Take responsibility? Not sweep it under the rug and ‘promise to do better next time?’

These parents are nameless in the press — because their children are minors — but they are celebrities to me.

Rockin’ it old school…and one day their kids will appreciate what they did.

 

Up a tree

I got my first look at a Go Pro camera in an electronics store in the Cincinnati Airport over Halloween weekend. I had seen video footage from one before, but the clips they had on a loop at the store entrance sucked me right in.

So I completely understand why this squirrel felt the need to ‘grab and go.’

He’s a pretty good cameraman, yes?
