Proud dad of the national homebrewing champ


Ok, here's a heartwarming photo of one very proud dad, Bob Johnson, pointing to a story in The Bee about his daughter, Annie Johnson, who had just won the prestigious title "Homebrewer of the Year" at the American Homebrewers Association conference in Philadelphia over the weekend. Bob, 81, is seriously ill and in hospice care at Emerald Gardens Nursing Center in Sacramento.

For Annie, winning the homebrewing title is a very impressive accomplishment, and it was great to find this photo this morning on my Twitter page. If Annie can Tweet a photo of her dad holding up a printout of this blog post, I promising to put that up, too!
