The Best Day Ever

"Charles Francis Adams, the 19th century political figure and diplomat, kept a diary. One day he entered: “Went fishing with my son today—a day wasted.”

His son, Brook Adams, also kept a diary, which is still in existence. On that same day, Brook Adams made this entry: “Went fishing with my father—the most wonderful day of my life!””

Saturday June 11th 2011, Keaton remarked at the end of a short fishing expedition, that this was “The best day ever”. Having not caught any fish, his Dad, Lee and I would not have been so positive, but hearing this five year old say it, that made our day special too. I for one was reminded of what the two Adamses taught us about perspective.

  1. Hanging out by the river with you guys sounds like a good day to me. Fish are slimy anyway.
