I missed Mothers day, but in my family we celebrate them much the same so the difference is not as large as it might be for others.

The purpose here, my friends, is to share with others your plan to honor your father, and all he has done, positive or negative. The desire on my part is to share with others our approval, and to withhold our judgement in others we find lacking, but I do not presume to be arbiter of these things.

Assuming however you are a father, then please, share your speculation as to how you will be honored, and your plans to display decency and comportetment in the proceedings to come.

As for me, i have my standard appointment for mothers day, fathers day, my parents birthdays, and their wedding anniversary. My sister and I share a bottle of Macallan Scotch, Niepoort Garrafeira, and family distilled Tsipouro together over our parents shared tombstone to celebrate them and in memory of their marriage as we have every year since our mother joined our father in the grave and could no longer join us for the ceremony.

What then, will you be doing my friends?

I'm far from my family right now. I'll be giving my father a call, though, on Sunday to wish him a very Happy Father's Day.
Father's Day is kinda sad for me, because my father is gone now. And we had only just started to become close, when he died. If you'd like the back story on what went wrong with me and my dad, I have a couple of blogs: >Blog one and Blog two.

As for me, as a father, I have two sons: 23 and 19 years old. They were raised by their mother and step-dad. I only had them for a few years when they were very young. We try to stay in touch, but now that they are young adults, we've drifted even further apart. If I receive a card or a call, from either, I will consider it a true blessing. (But, I won't result to shaming them into it.) About the time I lost my two boys; I met a wonderful woman, my present wife. At the time, she was trying to raise her three young kids, by herself... and I just naturally fell into the roll of step-dad to them. They are all in their twenties now, and I see them frequently... even though they are in three different colleges, in three different cities.

Each has already acknowledged me for Father's day, with gifts and/or cards. I love them so much, and cherish all the time I had with them. All, in all, it's a good Father's Day... about as good as it gets (for me).

Happy Father's Day to all you guys out there, and if you haven't hugged your kids lately; now would be an excellent time to do so!

"Aye - that's why I'm wondering if you'll need an alternative reader as well. The Kindle app is going to mostly only play nice with Amazon purchases, but those are not the only ebook formats or suppliers."
