I love all the pics of the Dads.

My Dad and I haven't had the greatest relationship, but he did give me his love of music and for that alone I can appreciate him.

Dad, thanks for supplying the tickets to many concerts when I was younger, for scaring me into thinking that the U2 tix had all sold out (so I appreciated them more when you pulled them out of your back pocket, lol), and for giving me all those bear hugs telling me I'm your "favorite girl in the whole world" when I was younger (and sometimes, even now).

I don't have any pictures of me and my dad scanned on the computer right now, so I can't post any here .

But I definitely love him. Bonochick, some of those quotes from your dad sound like things my dad would say ! Any odd sense of humor that I exhibit, I blame on my dad, LOL-he never fails to do or say something that makes me laugh, even if it's telling me a really, really lame joke (dads seem to have a knack for that kind of joke, have any of you ever noticed that? I kid, I kid...). I'd definitely be lost without him...he's a really, really smart guy and has given me lots of good advice over the years.

Plus, I also love how he's genuinely interested in everything that I'm interested in. And he fully supports whatever I wish to do with my life, too.

*Nods, s to those who are in this position*

One last HFD to those Fathers serving in our Armed Forces around the world who can't be with their loved ones today...

To the family members missing their husband, brothers or their near and dear...I salute you!

Agree with that sentiment, too, Mr. BAW .

On behalf of children everywhere
to fathers everywhere



Don't know where to begin,
but we can start here.

“Thanks for not pulling out."

I got to visit my dad on Sunday.

My boyfriend went to the cemetary to visit his dad's grave. My dad told me he heard something on the radio that went something like, "Fathers don't go to Heaven and just wait for their wives and children to arrive. They repair the steps, fix the squeaky gates, and do all that they can to make things perfect for when they arrive."

My Dad went over to my grandparents house for Father's Day and they gave him a bunch of really old pictures of the family

My Dad and his cat, Koko - around 1962/63 I think:


My Grandfather (my Dad's father) - we call him Poppy - in the 1930s:

Very cool. I'm guessing by the looks, your dad is about 2 or 3 years older than me.....
