Yup, it’s Fathers Day. All you dads get out there and do something you enjoy today. Since my truck is in the paint and body shop, I’m going to drive Clarence, the ‘39 Dodge Business Coupe to breakfast in town this morning. Probably stop and pick up some donuts on the way home.

Are step Dad’s considered Father’s?

What's this Ron....."That is all I have"???? Pretty unusual for you buddy, hope you're feelin' OK.
Dang Martin....that sounds like a good way to start out the day. Soon as I get me coffee and
muffin down I'll be heading out to saddle up the Kubota and ride it most of the day. Was
hopin' to find a race to watch this afternoon but since I'm a cheap skate, I don't have
any of those paid for racing channels.
But, my daughter and grandson did come to visit yesterday so.....I guess you could say, I'm a day ahead?
Wishin' all you dads a good one.

If they raised you, then my vote is yes.

No Martin, I raised one from about the age of six.
My Dad has been gone over eight years and I think about him several times a day, every day.

YES, Don things I have read it is much harder to raise one that is not your own. No, Denny, no real problems but issues crop up daily it seems. With COPD it limits what I can get done and being a procrastinator by nature but being brought up " on getting up and doing something you will feel better philosophy" it is difficult not having to do things. I am getting ready to take the truck on it's is a special day trip, holidays, birthdays, and just for fun.

I envy all you guys who had good fathers. Dad was all about working and earning 💰 and hoarding it. Not about spending quality time with any of his 8 kids. Hopefully I did better, they always call me on Fathers day. They all live 4-5 hours away, will see them next weekend.

Just got back from a special day drive in the truck.. It was low on fuel so I thought I would fill it up,$5.14 a gal, NOT stopped at 1/2. I would like to comment more on fathers, about what is going on in the US these days But dare not.
