My Dad knows a lot…a whole lot.

Oh, Father? He is hopelessly old-fashioned.

He knows a little bit about it, but not much.

Before we decide, we will get Dad's idea first.

What would Dad have thought about that?

My Dad knew literally everything!

  4. You touched my heart with that one. Especially the last wish to talk to Dad once more. Hope Shaune enjoys his Father's Day!

  5. Love it! It is so true how our feelings toward our elders changes as we grow older.

    I like the wrapping job on the gift!

  6. Very appropriate for Father's Day. Thanks.

  7. Kim, no one ever is as dumb or smart as we think. Just human.
    oh, but how perception can play tricks! ~rick

  8. This is cute. Good perspective on a great day!

  9. seems that our primary duty as parents is to teach them what they need to know in order to grow beyond us. if you hold him prisoner - in a closed fist he will make every effort to break free - if you support him on your open palm he will fly free but return to you often - loving him is the easiest thing to do, setting him free the hardest.

  10. So true, about Mom's as well...:) I hope it was a great day for Shaune.
