    Facts About Fathers

    • Never forget, if it wasn’t for your father, you wouldn’t be here.
    • No matter how old you are, you are still a snotty-nose kid to your dad.
    • Fathers don’t get paid for a job well done – unless you count satisfaction.
    • When a father says "no," he really means, "ask your mother."
    • What father says is law. But that’s because kids are not old enough to vote yet.
    • Your father knows more about you than you think he does – but you can trust him not to tell.
    • Fathers are perfect, problems are created by children
    • If at first you don’t succeed, ask your father for a second chance.
    • There may be several opinions, but dad’s is the only one that counts.
    • When your father gets quiet, he is planning – if he is snoring, the plan worked.
    • Always agree with your father. Then he cannot say "I told you so!"
    • If you can’t remember when you hugged your dad, maybe he can’t either.
    • Never tell father he is wrong, it will only irritate him.
    • Never criticize your father’s driving unless you prefer walking.
    • If you have your father’s complete approval, he is probably making a big mistake.
    • You may fool mother but you can’t fool dad – he pulled the same stunts when he was a kid.
    • You can’t keep anything from your father. If you can hide it, he can find it.
    • Never argue with your dad. And if you do, never think you will win.
    • There is no such thing as a father without radar – it’s standard equipment.
    • There are always exceptions to dad’s rules, but he is the one that decides what they are.
    • Experience is something your father will always have more of, and you cannot get enough of.
    • Your father will forgive your mistakes, but that doesn’t mean you should repeat them.
    • Fathers are the only judges that can convict without evidence.
    • If you have outgrown your need for fatherly advice, be sure not to mention it to him.
    • No matter what is broken, dad has a tool that can fix it or render it unfixable.
    • If dad does not have an answer, he will pretend not hear the question.
    • Father’s memory is always better than yours, especially when you borrow money.
    • Father is the person that you can always call on - just be sure to call during halftime.
    • Dad owns the remote control, but you are welcome to use the lawnmower.
    • A father’s gratitude is priceless, but a big screen TV is not.

    Just a quick story to share ....

    Kelsey is my adopted daughter. We met each other when she was 7 - what an angel!! Blonde hair, blue eyes - her mom wasn't bad, either!!! :lol:

    Pam & I married in '98 - Kelsey was just short of 10. In 2001 we went to Hawaii on vacation. That Father's Day 2001 Kelsey & I went for a walk alone on Wakiki & I told her that I was legally her dad.

    We both cried. :tup:

    She's my daughter in EVERY way except genes. So much so that it's sometimes a bit disturbing. :icon_eek:

    Dads - love your kids. :yes:

    Awesome story Buck!

    I got to sleep in this morning and the wife and boy woke me up w/ a triple-venti, non-fat, vanilla latte' and a key chain he had made for me in school:yes:

    then my mom came over and we had mimosas and MrsLash made my favorite brealfast of SPAMhash, scrambled eggs, and biscuits and gravy.

    now I get to kick back and watch the US Open.

    I hope all fathers evrywhere are having at least half as great of a day as I am. If your dad is alive call or go see him. If your dad has passed like mine take a minute with your thoughts to tell him how much you love and miss him anyway:flag:

    My oldest son called from Qatar this morning...that was great; he'll come back home for acuppola weeks in August before he returns.

    My Father's Day meal was acuppola bowls of some Kick-*** Texas Chili, that consists of plentya fire and no nasty-*** beans!! :tup:

    Hey B4L!
    I got your PM. I will respond soon.....:yes:
    Been a bad week-end~~~My uncle who was like a Dad to me passed away Saturday at 1:30AM. My cousin Christie called me Wed. from HER hospital room after undergoing some bad surgery to tell me her Dad was taken to another hospital by the paramedics. My Uncle Bill was never the same man after losing his son Howard at the young age of 31. He basically drank himself to death. To top it all off, after being at the hospital with her husband all day, my SWEET Aunt Ann came home to find her beloved Tuffy dead in her pool. Sheesh!:icon_sad::icon_sad::icon_sad:
