Holy cow Batman, I'm having to dig holes today for her plants before I go play golf. What's up with that? Short end of the stick, yes! Hopefully my 'short' game is on today.

A real man is a good father 365 days a year and doesn't give a flip about some Hallmark holiday.

now that's the Fathers Day spirit right there!

Why do they advertise items for both mother and fathers day that are totally traditional? People's tastes have changed since 1950. What is with the pen sets? Who even uses a pen any more? A man who works construction should be treated to a nice, soothing bath, (yes, men take baths), and be able just to sit and take it easy. How about just saying, hey, this is your day, what do you want?

I got this stuff for my dad one year as a gag gift and he absolutely loved it. He said it works wonderfully.

Thank you so much. I got out the plastic and sent for some. I told my daughter and believe she will. The granddaughter is next. See what you started? There are some things that are unigender and just wanting to be comfortable is one of them.

BBQ and beer. The only way to spend you fathers day. Even if you do shrift yourself later.

I got to sleep till 3:00 PM, got up and mowed, trimmed, sprayed, seeded the lawn.

Then I went to the movies.

Haven't eaten yet, but will be having shrimp & bow tie pasta with butter and parm.

Not a bad day all in all, could have used another couple hours of sleep though.

it's too hot to be planting grass seed but the rabbits and birds will love it.
