Another Obligatory Father's Day Tribute?...


I mean, when you grow up without one (for all intents and purposes) that third Sunday in June always just sort of sneaks up on you somehow, sort of like a (well, like pretty much anything else in life that sneaks up on you at the most inopportune or inconvenient of times.) I could list several of them as examples but I'll just let you use your imagination.

Disclaimer: Yay, I Finally Got One! Even if I DID have to wait until years after I'd left home. So anyway, I've pretty much always since then thought of it as "Grandpa's Day" or "Son-In-Law's" Day.

But I have this very real sneaking suspicion that Parker will always welcome this day for years and years to come... with open arms.



Ok... so that's about the best I can do for now. But please feel free to check out these links below for some far more inspiring perspectives...

P.S. to previous FD comment:

Chardonnay,

If I had waited a little longer, I could have saved you the trouble of transposing, LOL! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the two very special men via your family links.

Like you, I hope Clay Aiken immensely enjoyed his first Father's Day celebration.

In my 6/14 blog, I inclded a link to your "Best of NACT Banter 2006" montages. From the comments, I believe you have had some new visitors at YouTube. *g*

Have a wonderful new week!
