Dad's Day

The same post for 014 as previous years. I miss my Dad.

The best to all Father's out there and I know most of you hold your children very close to your heart. Here is one of my favorite pictures of my Dad taken in France in 1945. Enjoy your day.



FROM LAST YEAR

Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there. I am not one and my dad is gone so the best to all of you guys out there. I bet my blogger friends who are fathers have some great kids. I miss my dad!

FROM '08

This is the first Father's Day I will not be making that call. I claim my Father's brother Rollie as a substitute Dad for this year. What I miss most is making those calls on a whim just to bs. The picture is a one shot deal. Up for a day only for the obvious reason. Taken next to the cornfield over two years ago the one I grew up in and my Dad farmed. Dad's name was Paul. NOTE The picture is back and will remain.




HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL THE GREAT FATHERS OUT THERE!


Dad is gone-Uncle Rollie's pooch gone-just found out another long time friend gone at 47-a first cousin soon to be gone-Tim Russert bang, gone at 58 my age-Mom's side of the family having a history of being gone just like that.

May not be related to Father's Day but very much value the close and few friendships I have and that includes relationships on the highway of the internets those that are the most informed of all.

Given the fragility of life every once in a while and the importance some put on theirs it's good to put things in perspective now and then. After all none of us are no more than piss ants in time. I love this video.

  2. Feeling very much like a piss ant in time these days. I'd bitch about it ... but then I'd sound like all the other monkeys. That video helps keep it all in perspective ... and speaking of perspective ... your header photo has so much perspective it makes me feel quite claustrophobic. Great shot!
    Props to you on memories of your Dad as well ....

  3. Thanks for that you guys. I did not stay at this memorial ling at all bj. It was sad and I'm just plain sick of it all. Look at Irak - the same players that got us there are back on stage. History has been rewritten and same shit all over. We can't win this.
