Today is the day that we remember and thank the Fathers in our lives- the one's who have raised and loved, unconditonally, our children- and the one's who raised and loved us.
Happy Father's Day to you all- My blogger friends, Steve, Dave, David, Mike and Jose.
And especially to my dear friends, Chuck, James, John and even Doug.
Now go find yourselves a hammock somewhere and make one of the kids bring you a beer.
The father of my children and the one who was and always is there for all of us.
Pop- My dear deceased Father-in-law, who passed away last year.
And, finally, my own father. The smartest man I've ever known, despite his lack of proper education. He taught me about art, books, music and the sun and the stars. I think I was the son he never had. Thanks Dad!!
There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself.
