Happy Father's Day '21
« on: June 20, 2021, 07:45:23 AM »
Hey, guys just wanted to wish all you dads out there a happy "us" day! Got any plans?

My MIL invited us over for dinner. We get there a bit early, so I can try again to repair the pipe to her outside, backyard spigot. She'll insist I not do it being father's day and all, but it's not a big job, so not a big deal. I'll just bring clothes to shower off over there for when I'm done.

Happy Father’s Day everyone!  I was invited to my younger daughter’s house in Canton, GA for a weekend of pampering!  My oldest daughter and our 2 Grandkids came up to spend the day yesterday, so we spent the day chilling by the pool until the Tropical Storm forced us inside. We were still able to enjoy grilled burgers and plenty of adult beverages!  My wonderful wife got me a new t-shirt for Father’s Day (see pic below), she said was fitting for me!  She knows me too well!  My oldest got me a bottle of Monkey Shoulder Scotch (my favorite) and my youngest got me a really nice gun rack for the man cave!  Overall, an extremely enjoyable day!

Love the tee!

However, I do believe that is actually an adverb  ;)

Happy Father's Day to all!

My favorite thing about today is you can call a guy a "Mother F'er" and it is TRUE!

I lost my dad 11 years ago, but this was him holding me....probably the first picture taken of the two of us.

Lizzy, that is a GREAT pic.
There is just something special about a "Daddy's love" for his little girl.

Yes, there is, Scott. I had a wonderful father...a gentle man whom I never saw raise his voice in anger,  or act unkindly toward anyone or anything.

HAPPY PAPPY DAY!


mine started out by sleeping in to 10:40.  (we went to bed after 2am)
i made a big breakfast for the mrs and me and then showered and took a long nap.  about 4pm i rode my bicycle into town and picked up a package at the post from our oldest daughter.  Tim Dorsey's The Pope of Palm Beach.  a short mile and a half to The Bean for an iced mocha coffee and i sat on the porch watching the after effects of a tropical storm that passed north of us last night.  a 44' Bristol Cutter came into the harbor to escape the wind with an inflatable along side keeping it from being blown into the fishing trawlers that line the little harbor.  i helped secure them to the dock and returned to my book.  several chapters passed when i felt the light sprinkle of a soft rain start, so i jumped on the bike and blazed through town.  well, blazed as fast as one can in a town where everyone waves as you pass by.  i arrived home to see my phone blown up with texts from our daughters, sons in law, neighbors from illinois, friends, and old co-workers wishing a happy fathers day.  i'm digging this retirement lifestyle.

Hi !

I spent the afternoon out in the Woods today, walking in the rain and shooting a rifle ...but all the while I was thinking about past fathers days.
I thought about my parents who have all passed away many, many, years ago.
I thought a lot about my sons who are now fathers in their own right.
The greatest thing that my father passed on to me was courage.
He was a Word War 1, Battle of Belleau Wood, Marine Corps Vet and the bravest person I have ever known.
I hope that... I too....have passed something admirable... on to my sons.


Best Wishes to All - Tom
