CJ, Powerful...As all good sons do, he wants to be just like Daddy and be the man. This child literally and figuratively wants to walk in his Daddy's shoes but also has the intelligence to know those are pretty big boots to fill.

This poem is complete in its discription of a Father's adoring son. Rusty

This is adorable. I just lost a good friend to the war, so I can totally relate.
