You know, that third Sunday in June when dad is “the man”. According to Wikipedia, the first observance of Father’s Day was held on July 5, 1908 in Fairmont West Virginia and, after many attempts,  was finally established as a national holiday by President Nixon in 1972. Seems like it took a long time to recognize dear ‘ole Dad but he’s probably used to that and really doesn’t mind being the unsung hero. He’s spent many hours fixing things and situations in the background with little or no fanfare. He’s worked extra hours and deprived himself of some of his wants so that the family could be more comfortable. He gave you that one piece of advice that turned out to change your life years down the road. Never wanting recognition for his duties, he goes about his daily business of work and play, but his mind is always on  those who are most precious to him.

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there, you keep the engine running and the wheels turning!
