A group of scientists and botanists were exploring remote regions of the Alps, looking for new species of flowers. One day they noticed through binoculars a flower of such rarity and beauty, that its value to science was incalculable. But it lay deep in a ravine with cliffs on both sides. To get the flower someone had to be lowered over the cliff on a rope. No one wanted to volunteer.

Then they noticed a teenage lad Who had been watching these scientists and botanists strange behaviour. They told him they would pay him well if he would agree to be lowered over the cliff to retrieve the flower below.

The boy took one long look down the steep, dizzy depths and said, "I'll be back in a minute." A short time later he returned, followed by a grey-haired man. Approaching the botanist, the boy said, "I'll go over that cliff and get that flower for you if this man holds the rope".

The botanists asked; "Who is he"

The boy replied, "He's my dad."
