Happy Father’s Day to all you father’s out there. Father’s come in many sizes and shapes. They go by many names, Dad, Father, Pa, Pops, Daddy and I’m sure a lot more nicknames.
I grew up calling my father Daddy, which changed to Dad in my teen years. But, he will always be Daddy to me. He embarrassed me by walking around in his boxers, telling the same old corny jokes over and over again, and always called my mom Toots.
Every Christmas and birthday I bought him Old Spice. Once I really got wild and bought him soap on a rope. As I got older, I would take him out to dinner instead of gifts. He’s been gone over 20 years now, but every time I smell Old Spice I think of him.
So, here’s to all the Dad’s out there today. May your day be filled with happy memories for years to come.
Any special memories you’d like to share about your dad?
Bottom Line: “Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.” ~ Proverb quote
