Happy Father’s Day!

Yay us! And all of the other fathers in the Empire, of course.

Now’s the time to sit back and enjoy the fruits of your, ahem, labor. Such as watching moths fly from the place where the money in your wallet used to reside.

We kid, of course.

Enjoy the one day of the year where you’ll get the respect you so richly deserve because, you know, the other 364 start tomorrow. 😉

    I get my ‘fathering’ advice from the Obama Administration, after all, Obama’s father… oh nevermind.

    http://www.fatherhood.gov offers a wide range of “tips” and resources for teaching men how to be a father, including “father-child” videos on healthy eating, teeth brushing and hand washing.

    The taxpayer-funded website, launched during the Clinton administration, is a project of the National Responsible Fatherhood Clearinghouse, which is a part of Health and Human Services’ Office of Family Assistance.

    Most important advice from your father is never pick up this broad in a saloon.

    Happy Dad’s Day to all of the Rottie dads. Any sperm-donor can be a father, but it takes a special man to be a dad … and I’m sure we’ve got a bunch of great ones here. :em01:

    A special Father’s Day salute to all the fathers in our armed forces whose service to country separates them from their families today. Thank you for making this choice and accepting this responsibility.

    A hearty second to that!

    I had the greatest Father’s Day I could ask for, got to spend it with Crumb Crunchie, his family (meaning my daughter-in-law and grandaughter) my Princesses and Bangie Thing. Having all three of my kids together, and spending precious time with my granddaughter PeeWee, is more than I could have asked for. :em01:

    Happy Father’s Day to all my Rottie brothers who had strong swimmers and fell asleep during the part about contraception in sex ed! :em05:

    I resemble that remark, and it seems I was a slow learner. since I have two fine examples of unexpected progeny.

    They may have been “unplanned”, but they have been the true joy in my life. :em01: :em05:

    My eldest treated me to a great lunch at my second favorite Sushi restaurant (even though she is a pretty staunch Vegan!) Her only stipulation was “not to order anything with a head still attached to it”. :em05:

    They also bought me books by an author they despise, (still being in the Liberal mindset held by the young) Glen Beck.

    All in all, a GREAT Fathers Day. :em01:
