Happy Fathers Day Gentlemen


I guess one day out of the year is still better than a sharp stick in the eye, eh?

If you are a Daddy then my hat is off to you.

More often than not it is a thankless task with lots of indigestion mixed in with fleeting moments of heart bursting pride and a dollop of fear.

Treated like a complete idiot most of the time until shit gets real and then who do they come to?

That's right.

We know how it works.

We play the game until there is a serious need for things to be made right.

Work our homesick asses off trying to provide for our families and wind up missing our kid's childhoods because of it.

A man has to do what a man has to do though.


It doesn't matter how old they get, they are still our little baby and even when they grow up and move out, the first time you talk to them, this is what you see,


And you know in your heart that you would kill the first motherfucker to do them harm with your bare hands.

That's the part no one else gets to see.

Because while everyone has themselves convinced that daddy is a clueless dolt, Daddy knows what the fuck is going on.

Daddy is doing his job.

Day in and day out.

He just doesn't let you know how much he worries or how bad his back is hurting every morning. How many times he has had to wrestle with himself to keep going.

Daddy does what he has to do.

Enjoy your one day fella's, then get back on it.

The little varmints don't raise themselves and no matter what anyone tells you and whether you notice it or not, your children are watching you, right back.

Remember that.
