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 .
it is nice for them to have their extra special day too though.
That is the best Fathers day celebration you could wish for Bear, I am so pleased for you and Mrs. Bear......Enjoy yourselves !
As my own sons grew, I learnt what I missed out on as I grew. My father died when I was 3.
