Dear Readers,

To all our dads...

Who walked the floor with us when Mom needed some sleep, and even when she didn't, who checked in the corners of the closet for monsters when we weren't sure that Mom got them all, who snuggled with us and didn't mind when we jumped on him, who wiped our noses and every other place that needed wiping, who carried us on their shoulders when we were too little to see, who drank tea with our dolls and kept a straight face, who made sure that we knew the only time the 30 second rule applied was when Mom wasn't watching, who helped us build forts and tree houses and showed us how not to hammer our thumbs, who showed us how to throw a slider and a spiral, how not to hook in golf, and how to hook in fishing, who taught us how to check the oil, and change a flat, who took us for our driving test and let us drive home when we passed the test no matter how bad the traffic was, who talked to our friends without letting them know they were being checked up on, who showed us how to do our taxes, who moved us into our first apartment and then moved us out, as well as multiple apartments after the first, who were right there when we didn't know what we were doing, and cheered for us when we did. To all our dads:

Happy Father's Day!!


p.s. If you're looking for something fun to do with Dad today, come on over to the "Donuts with Dad" program this afternoon, 1:30-2:30 p.m., featuring stories, games, and donuts. It's right for any budget, from your allowance money on up, because it's free!

Dear Readers,
Are you wondering about the image above? It's a dad and his baby, and you can bet that baby likes to snuggle with dad, and dad seems happy to snuggle with his cub. Place your mouse cursor on the photo for the location and date of the photo. Left click the image for an enlargement. You can left click again for an even bigger image.
