I Called My Father "Papa"

Father's Day is June 19.  It took fathers a good deal longer than mothers to get their rightful national recognition.  It wasn't until President Johnson's proclamation, in 1966, that the holiday was officially recognized.  With Father's Day just around the corner, let's give our dads their due with this perspective on fathers and children:

4 years:  My Daddy can do anything!

7 years:  My Dad knows a lot...a whole lot!

8 years:  My father does not know quite everything.

12 years:  Oh well, naturally Father does not know that, either.

14 years:  Father?  He's hopelessly old-fashioned.

21 years:  The old man is so out of date.

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

30 years:  I must find out what Dad thinks about it.

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

50 years:  What would Dad have thought about that?

60 years:  My Dad knew literally everything!

65 years:  I wish I could talk it over with Dad once more.

To every father, grandfather and great-grandfather:  Enjoy your day!
