  • Fathers’ Day

    2011 - 06.19

    WordPress has been misbehaving and refusing to work with me.

    Yes I know, I goofed up. I missed my own unofficial Friday deadline. One of the great things about being a full-time writer is not having to punch a time-clock. As long as I fulfill a publisher’s deadline, it doesn’t matter if I do it two weeks early or stay up 48 hours straight and squeak it in just under the line. And one thing’s for sure, I’ve never missed anyone’s deadline in my life. If my blog is a day or so late, no harm, no foul. I don’t think I’m holding up anyone’s life by posting today instead of Friday.

    While it’s on my mind-Happy Father’s Day! I wish I could get into it more than I do but, since my biological father died when I was four, it’s just not been a big holiday in my life. Sorry to be a downer. Okay, so let me go one step further in ruining your mood since I have your attention. Today is my mother’s birthday. She’s been gone for eight years yet, every year, for the week preceding this date, several times I panic and think, “Oh God, what can I get Mom for her birthday?” I’d give anything to have to still worry about that. And because she was mother and father both for most of my life, this weekend is a double-whammy for me.

    Okay, that’s the end of “Pity Party for One”. The sun is shining, I have a great family and already finished cooking breakfast (almost two hours ago) for my husband (steak, eggs, hash browns, biscuits, orange juice and coffee) and the kitchen is clean. As an early gift, I took hubby to the stage play production of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” at a community theatre last night. Afterward we got an ice cream cone. Very 1950ish, right? What more could I ask for?

    My daughter is taking my husband (her step dad) out for supper tonight and has invited me along. Since we don’t yet know where we’re going, it’s going to be a nice surprise. One of my step-sons called his dad earlier and was getting things together for a barbeque, including steamed clams. What???? This southern girl doesn’t understand steamed claims being part of any barbeque-ever. Oh well, he lives in Jersey-maybe that’s the reason. 

    I don’t remember having special Father Day events as I was growing up, though I may have with my first step-father and just don’t remember them. How about you? Do you have any nice or funny Father Day’s memories to share?

    Here’s my Father’s Day gift to you:

    Father’s Day was near when I brought my three-year-old son, Tyler, to the card store. Inside, I showed him the cards for dads and told him to pick one.

    When I looked back, Tyler was picking up one card after another, opening them up and quickly shoving them back into slots, every which way. “Tyler, what are you doing?” I asked. “Haven’t you found a nice card for Daddy yet?”

    “No,” he replied. “I’m looking for one with money in it.”

    ************************************************************************

    On the day I received my learner’s permit, my father agreed to take me out for a driving lesson. With a big grin, he hopped in behind the driver’s seat. “Why aren’t you sitting up front on the passenger’s side?” I asked.

    “Honey, I’ve been waiting for this ever since you were a little girl,” Dad replied. “Now it’s my turn to sit back here and kick the seat.”

    33. While most of us couldn’t dream of living without these kitchen appliances today, these are all things that
      our grandmothers and even moms lived without. Since these items
      are extremely popular, the store owners and managers would only offer
      these discount small kitchen appliances sales for a limited time only.

      Over 90% of all search traffic routes through page 1 and more importantly about 60% of that route directly through the Top 3
      positions on the 1st page. For companies to rank their
      service range in the Top 3 positions requires specialist support
      and sourcing a suitable SEO supplier can be difficult as there is so much
      said and written about a service which only few can truly deliver.
