"J.W. has been trying to call you all morning," my father said. "Answer that damn phone for once."
I asked Dad why J.W. was calling and he said J.W. wants to be the first to tell me.
Later in the day the phone rang. I picked it up and found an excited J.W. on the other end.
"You knew my wife was pregnant didn't you?"
Yeah," I replied.
"She had a baby boy last night at 2 in the morning. I named him after you."
I was floored. It was about one of the most flattering things that has happened to me.
J.W.? Get ready for a fishing trip cause we are going to catch some fish.
