Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day to any fathers reading this (though I imagine you have better things to do today)!
For those of you who have fathers, grandfathers, husbands who are fathers...do something special today...Yes, I'm a penny-pincher and I don't believe that the most expensive gift is the best one for the occasion...some ideas:
* Breakfast in bed (don't forget the coffee and the newspaper - he gets dibs on the sports & comics!)
* Hit a local fishing spot...have a picnic (he can bait his own hook)!
* One day free of anyone pushing their own agenda (kids - no whining, older kids - no begging for the car or cash, wives - no nagging - no I mean it!)
* Write your dad a note about fun times you remember from when you were younger...even in a homemade card!
This is one of those occasions where money doesn't necessarily buy happiness...he'll treasure any of these special times/gifts!
Here's to Dad!
