Father's Day

It's going to be Father's Day tomorrow and I still don't have a present for my Dad.  Well, I did plan to get him something, but the place I wanted to go to had closed down 2 months ago!  Now, how did that happen without me knowing?

Well, today, I'm off to find my Dad a good present that he'll use and not just leave on a shelf and let gather dust.  And this got me wondering.  What are you planning - or have you gotten your Dad if you live in the Northern Hemisphere - for Father's Day?  Was a book, a series of books, a fine wine, a bottle of scotch, a holiday away?  Let us all know.  

This weekend, I'm taking up Saturday to be with my Dad.  And tomorrow - the day of the occasion - is for my brother, Gabe, who is also a Dad of a 12 year old.  So, it's quite apt for them to hang out on the day and have a meal together... two Dads.  Now, that's how it ought to be, hanging out for a meal and a few beers in the city.  Until my next post, happy reading!

  1. My dad is really into suduko, crossword puzzles, math, running, and horse racing, so I've purchased him various books on the the above mentioned topics over the years. Otherwise I just spend time with him on Father's Day.
