Father's Day Musings

June 17, 2012, the day after June 16,2012, and the day before June 18,2012 is Father's Day. Actually all three days are Father's Day. No, make that all 365 days in 2012.

I'm not trying to make light of this day. After all a trip through the mall is enough to convince me that this is an important day. I do have news for the retailers. I don't need to receive a brightly wrapped package to remind me that I'm being honored this day. Sorry, but every day since December 18, 1954 I've been very conscious that I'm a father. I love my children and they return my love every day.

Some notes in passing:
  • I read a column by Phillip Morris of The Plain Dealer in which he admitted that it was time to stop referring to his thirteen year old daughter as "my little girl". I suddenly realized that I still refer to my fifty-two year old daughter as "doll". I should stop but she is a doll.
  •  As for my son, he could not have made me prouder a couple of weeks ago when he announced that he was writing a book.
  •  And deep gratitude and love for my spouse, The High Primal, for making me a father.
