I saw this somewhere and immediately thought of my Dad…

For better or for worse, our dads are our earliest teachers. They taught us that “money doesn’t grow on trees” and that “a little dirt never hurt anybody.” They taught us that “it builds character,” even though “it” was usually just code for “mowing the lawn.” And our dads taught us our first lesson in DIY mastery: “righty tighty, lefty loosey.”

Father’s Day is when we honor our dads for always having just the right tool to tighten our training wheels and for being right behind us when those training wheels came off.

Happy Father’s Day, Dad. I miss you.


  1. To the greatest dad the world has ever known...Happy Father's Day Dad! you are a wonderful example of a great man. I love you much and enjoy your well deserved nap! XO

  2. My favorite was always, "For God's sake, it's just a rake!"

    Happy father's day!

  3. @ Carla: Thanks! I love you too.
    @ Jake: LMAO! You're never gonna let that go, are you...
