Happy Father’s Day
To quote Mark Twain, I would say, “When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.” And baseball great Harmon Killebrew had it right when he said, “My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, ‘You’re tearing up the grass.’ ‘We’re not raising grass,’ Dad would reply. ‘We’re raising boys.’”
Where will you be Father’s Day?
Me, … remembering Dad – playing ball on weekends, picturing his outdated Fedora hat and Panama shirt, the smell of his after-shave, and how happy he was at the end of each day sitting in his favorite chair reading the sports.
