Father's Day

Are you doing anything special or do you think it is just a commercially driven excuse to sell things?

My own father has passed on. My two daughters (step-daughters to me) have not intentionally kept in touch (sometimes I get to see or hear from one of them when they call or stop by for their brother).

My son Tim has not said he plans to do anything special.

I think it is a good day. I think that in American culture, there are still fathers who spend less time with their sons and daughters than do the mothers, to the detriment of the offspring. I hope fathers who still have children at home will make a point of spending some time with them--a day at the park, or miniature golf--something that involves interaction (as contrasted to movies, for example, which are more of a side-by-side experience).

Tim and I are both short on money. If he wants to do something, it will have to be cheap.

Fathers Day along with Mothers Day is just another day . The only people who make from this are the ones that sell the Cards and Gifts .
As for me I will be working as usual . :(

I agree Waffler, if you have a good Mother and Father you should show your appreciation on a regular basis rather than just one day a year.

it is nice for them to have their extra special day too though.

Sadly my father is no loner with me but he is missed every day, I didnt need a special day to honour him he was my best mate.
Cards and gifts were not his thing, sharing a glass of home brew sitting in his big green house was special but we did that quite often.

I will get a special fathers day gift, my eldest son flies in from America in the early hours, I haven't seen him for a long time.

I'll get the usual card ( hand made) from my grand-daughter though.

Everybody have a nice day what ever.


Regards the Bear

As my own sons grew, I learnt what I missed out on as I grew. My father died when I was 3.
