Father's Day!

Here's to my Dad!

A father and a dad are not the same:
One can be a dad and not a father,
Or one can be a father and not bother
To earn through love the more endearing name.
Some find fatherhood a bit too tame,
Leaving all the details to the mother,
Or dumping the sweet burden on another
Man with just a passing twinge of shame.
You have been our dad so many years
That you've become the landscape that is home,
The mountain that we look to from afar.
No matter where we go we're not alone,
For you remain within to still our fears
And be the word that tells us who we are.

Anybody want to go out to lunch with me on Tuesday? Applebee's in broadripple is donating 15% of all sales to my swim team! But you have to show a flyer. Anyway if you are interested just call or e-mail me, or just call me or e-mail me just to talk anyway! :) Miss you all!

If there were other people going that I know, I'd go. They'd better hurry, but if someone wanted to organize it...
