Like Father, Like Son...Like Grandson

This weekend had us thinking about the legacy of a father--values, ideals, skills and talents that are passed on to children and help shape who each of us become. Whether it's an inner strength, a physical manifestation of a talent, or some combination in between--today we thank dad. And what better legacy of dads than the Wyeth's...a family of artisits that have helped to shape American culture and art since the beginning of the 20th century.
