Perfect Father's Day?

    Tomorrow is Father's Day here in the U.S. I am wondering what the Dad's on DP think is a perfect day for them.

    I have decreed in my household that tomorrow will be an unusual Father's Day for me and the family. It will involve no work on anyone's part and no efforts or any activities causing work or stress. This means that there will be no cooking, grilling, organized activities, or anything else that requires anyone in the household to do anything in support of the holiday. It will be a day to rest and chill, eat takeout or at a restaurant, and just lay around and relax for everyone. I am really looking forward to it!

    Man, I wish I could decree the same. It'll be low key for sure, but my wife is planning to bbq baby back ribs and make the aforementioned strawberry pie. If it wasn't for my 7 year old, I'd probably request a day of rest, but you know how it is kids are excited about any holiday and I do not want to take it away from her. Maybe when she's older.

    Good point, my kids are 27 and 17, so they are not so excited about Dad's Day, anyway. :)

    Have fun!

    Perfect father's day would be watching a football game stuffing my face but the NFL doesn't start playing until August

    At least you can do the "stuffing your face" part. :)

    And, if you can get the NFL channel, they re-run great football games from the past season all year long.

    Since my schedule states Personal Day for every Sunday I don't expect anything to be different this Father's Day.

    I may hear a Happy Father's Day from kids, grandkids, and maybe a great grandkid or two but for the most part I expect I'm too old for that stuff - and they just might be right.

    Well, let's hope that you get good wishes from a bunch of your progeny. :)

    And perhaps, a special food? Never too old for that.;)

    I'm sure there will be good wishes. Some of my descendants always send them my way.

    As far as special food - I attended a family reunion yesterday and ate enough to last a couple months I think.

    I am quite happy with where I am. For me I designed my life well. I'd like to see many others do that for themselves. I believe too many don't.

    Happy Father's Day to all the Dads here on DP.
