Father’s day posts

June 18, 2006

I wrote about my father a few months ago, so I’ll follow MrsDoF’s lead and link to a couple great Father’s Day posts that I found:

On UTI, Campeador Diem, the origin of fatherhood.  As you might expect from Darksyde, it’s a billion years ago.  Of course, the invention of fatherhood also implies the invention of sex, so this is a very, very good day.

Also from Florida, on Charming, Just Charming, GUYK recalls his dad’s pioneer spirit, and the lessons he learned and passed on.

Every good parent knows they would fight demons to protect and provide for their family.  Terry at I See Invisible People describes how her father did just that:  her father’s poetic nature, his struggle with bipolar disorder, and heroic devotion to his family.  And a few flowers, at just the right time.

    I appreciate the link. My Dad was one of those kind of men that got along with everyone and everyone liked and respected. He lived a few days shy of 84 years and there was not ever standing room at the church when we had the funeral—and at least 500 people..mostly men who had knew him over the years.. were standing out side with their hats off when the casket was loaded to take to the cemetary. I had been gone from the area for many years. I knew that he was well known but I was surprided in a way of the resect that he had earned in the community. It made me proud.
