Happy Father's Day to all of you

Posted on: June 15, 2008 9:23 am
 
I just wanted to wish a heartfelt Dad's Day to all you Dad's to be, Dad's, Grandpa's, Dad's to Dogs or Cats or other animals (someone needs to feed them kibble).

I wish I could go spend the day with my Dad today, but alas, I have to work in the studio, it's my Sunday. I think back often of all the big and little things my Dad has done for me in my short life, the impact he has had, the memories he has given me and made with me. I was four and he did not fuss a bit when I ventured into his camera bag...and I am now a photographer.  When we went to Busch Gardens and I was scared to death to ride the Loch Ness Monster...because ot the upside down loops, he said to close my eyes in the loop and he'd tell me when we were through it, much to my surprise he had me open them in the middle of the loop! When I got stuck in the potty chair, he left me there bawling, and got the camera to document it. When it was time for me to go to Appalachian, we packed err loaded his Chevy S-10 up with all my stuff, wrapped the bed in plastic and made the trek up the mountain (never mind we kind of looked like the Beverly Hill Billy's). I have run out of gas, he has brought me fuel. He looks at my tires, even now and says they need to be rotated or replaced. He helps me with my son. He taught me that age is merely a number, but to live each day to the fullest. He is my Dad, and I am thankful for him...and he is amazing.

Happy Dad's Day Daddy!!!

Enjoy your day guys, if it is parking it with a cold one in front of the ball game or race, sleeping in the hammock with the paper, playing outside with your kids...whatever makes your Dad's Day special...do it. And for you kids, go see your Dad and show him that you do appreciate him..if he's too far away...call him.

Thanks a lot!  Actually had my brother's family, including his inlaws over to the home and I barbequed some hamburgers.  Great day.

My fathers day sucked. I had a fishing trip planned but it got rained out. I decided to run to the store to pick up a few things for myself and ended up buying dresses for the wife and daughter and spent a few hours while they tried on everything in the store. When I got home I sent them back out so I could have some quiet time while they beat the crap out of my credit card on another shopping spree. I guess it's the price you pay for being a dad. I'll get over it and spend all next weekend fishing and sucking down beer. Then, I will have the last laugh. Happy fathers day!


Can I buy you a natty boh hon? Sounds like you had a crappy day...

I stand corrected...Dad just emailed me the following...
As I recall, you opened your eyes of your own accord, halfway thru the loop & decided it was much fun & wanted to get in line again.  Good memories, nevertheless.  


I still like my memory just a little better...I swear he told me we were through the loop...
