Father's Day Appreciation Thread

In honor of Father's Day this Sunday, let's show a little appreciation for our Dads.

Here's me with my Dad:



I appreciate him because, well, he's always been my hero. He's lived a life of love, service, humility, and integrity that I can only hope to aspire to.

Thanks Dad!!

I simply have the best father in the world. No doubt about it. He is absolutely amazing...completely selfless...always putting others before himself. After 23 years, I moved out in April...and, man, do I miss him. I'm not ashamed to say that I get so lonely for him sometimes that I cry. We talk everyday though. He and I have been through so much together...there were some years where it was just him and me, and while we went through a lot of sad times, we sure did have a ton of happy times. I owe everything I have to him. Besides the countless things he has done for me throughout my life (and continues to do), he literally saved my life. He's my best friend.

I love you, Dad. I admire you more than anybody else. You're my hero.

On a musical note, thank you for the U2 concerts, The Rolling Stones concerts, and the Ryan Adams concert. I had so much fun with you.

At another message board, I collect quotes in my profile...and many involve my dad. So...in the spirit of Father's Day...

Ryan Adams: "You're a very pleasant young lady."
Dad: "He obviously doesn't know you like I do."

Me: "Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out."
Dad: "How could it possibly hit me in the you?"

Me: "When's dinner gonna be ready?"
Dad: "About ten minutes."
Me: "Faster!"
Dad: "Did you call me a bastard, bitch?!"

"I blame Ryan Adams for everything."

"You can't reject a guy just because he doesn't like Ryan Adams!"

"If we were smart, we'd have emergency pudding."

"I'm not mad. I'm just going to be waiting for you with a baseball bat."

"You should be one of those people who makes things out of dryer lint."

"Call 911, I'll be naked in a tree!"

"They don't even write their own music. No-talent no-goods. Sons of bitches."

"Don't get yourself killed. It would ruin my weekend. I mean, I'd still take my trip...but I'd be kinda bummed."

"That's our problem...we're idiots."

I love him cause he's a weirdo. My fave pic of my dad (Halloween, btw):


And I love him since he lets my daughter call him "Gramps" and he thinks she's tons of fun and tells her stories about me when I was little, which she loves.

I my dad. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have him in my life. He's always been there for me.

Also, s and s to anyone missing and remembering a dad on Father's Day this year. I believe we've had a couple of Interlanders lose dads this past year, and in other years.

My dad passed away 6 years ago, but haveI wonderful memories of him and what a great dad he was to me. He was the best.

I don't get to see my Dad as often as I'd like...my parents split a lonnng time ago, but we're still close. He's currently chasing down a story for CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) in Africa on the Marburg virus. It's a close cousin of Ebola, from what I've read. He has to wear a full body suit while he's there, and cannot bring his clothes back to Canada with him for fear of contamination. I can just imagine him returning now, wearing funky African garb.

My Dad is a lot like me, except he's not as emotional...maybe that's a good thing sometimes. But it does give me the power to say that I love him, admire him, and miss him when he's not around...
