To those of you who have Father's who are admirable, loving, deserving of respect, dependable, loyal and that you just plain love so much, I hope you will celebrate a wonderful Day on Sunday with that person. Or in the case of those whose Dad's have passed away and had a super Father, I hope the memory of that loved person brings you joy in the remembering.
I love going to the card store and looking at all the different types, kinds, varieties of wishes for Father's day.
Sweet Man is a terrific man, great husband, loving father and kick ass Papa, but he doesn't fish, hunt, watch sports, cars or build stuff. So.....a lot of cards just don't do it for us. The kids made him cards, I bought a sappy lovie one and we'll have steak on the grill, southern style creamed corn, homemade rolls, great big old salad with everything in the world in it and lemon ice box pie. He always insists on no presents and we have kept it that way all these years. He is so easy to please.
Happy Daddy's Day Joe, we love you.
While my own father was alive, the day was always a disaster. Never right, never enough and you know it was even harder to find him a card. As I have joked (not really) since I was a teenager...'ya know they don't have cards that say...Happy Father's day you mean spirited, worthless old shit'. That isn't nice to bring up at this time of year but it is a case in point......if you have a precious and loved Father...consider yourself blessed beyond all measure.
