Happy Father's Day

     Today, is a very special and spectacular day today.  Because not only is it Father's Day, which is the day that we use to honor our fathers, but it is the official beginning of meteorological summer.  That means nothing to the bulk of you, I know, but I still think it's pretty sweet that Father's Day fell on such an important day.
     The first day of meteorological summer is important because it is the longest day of the year.  That's right, dirty dawgs.  You get more bang for your daylight buck on this particular day than on any other, as long as you live in the Northern Hemisphere.  If you live south of the equator you are getting screwed over today, I am sorry.  So I guess what I am saying is that you should go outside and enjoy all the daylight.  Soak up on the Vitamin D because it's going to be in short supply once February rolls around.  Okay?
     One of the things that you could do on this very special day is to spend some time with your dad.  If you don't like your dad, go spend some time with someone else's dad then.  I mean it is Father's Day and all.  And what a fantastic day for Father's Day to fall on.  Dad's generally love being outside and doing outside stuff, mainly because the moms are inside most of the time.  They love grilling, lawn care, fishing, hunting, all sorts of stuff.  Maybe combine the three: have your dad hunt something from the riding lawnmower then grill it up for dinner.  That would be fun for dad.  And one hell of a police report, I can tell you that.
     In any event, do something nice for dad today.  Call him up at least.  Because regardless of how your life has been, he was still an integral part of your being you.  even if he wasn't around so much he at least gave you half your genes, so either your blue eyes or blonde hair came from him.  So honor him in some way.  And Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there.  Enjoy your day!
