Happy Father's Day to any out there and to the dads of my friends list. I've never observed father's day.
There wasn't one around. But I have fairly vivid childhood memory surrounding the "Give-Dad-an-Ugly-Tie Day".
I came home with a wonky little clay ashtray (everyone in school had to make), without a dad to give it to.
It made me kind of both sad and confused at the same time but by the time I got home I knew what I would do.
I told my mom that she was the best dad in the world because she did everything for us both parents did.
I think she still might have that little ashtray. Happy Father's Day, mom.

Do you read Heart of the City? Today's strip was kind of like that.

That is possibly the sweetest thing I've ever heard. :) Father's Day for me growing up was all about my grandfather, so it's always felt kind of weird.

Oh, man, that's so nice of you to say. *sniffle*
Did your grandfather live with you growing up?
