Happy Father's Day

Father's Day is here.
A time to celebrate Dad
With another tie.

Happy Father's Day to all my paternal readers!

I hope you have a great day with your families, eat lots of good food, and don't strangle yourself by accident trying on the new tie you likely got! ~.^

What is the deal with giving a tie anyhow?

It seems the gifts most given to dear ol' Dad on Father's Day are either a tie, a wallet, or a bottle of Brut or Old Spice cologne.

Are we telling Pop that we wish a noose around his neck? That he's only good for making and dispensing money? That he smells?

This year, break tradition! Take Dad out to eat. Give him a gift certificate from his favorite store. Wash his car for him. Mow the lawn for him. Maybe just leave him the heck alone to snooze in his easy chair for the day.

But don't give him a tie.

Unless it's one of those gag ties that light up, play "I'm Too Sexy", or has #1 DAD emblazoned across the front.

Those are perfectly fine.

Especially with the matching coffee mug!

Happy Father's Day!
