Happy Father's Day and Summer Solstice

Me and a few of the gkids
Happy Father's Day to all you dads and Happy Summer Solstice as well. It's a great combination for a day. Definitely, indulge yourselves today. May you live long and always bask in the love of your family and children.

My own dear dad is long gone. Unfortunately, he didn't live long enough to see me pull out of the tailspin of my early years, though he predicted one day I would. Thank you for that. Neither did he live long enough to meet any of his own wonderful grandchildren. I attribute that to his meat, cigarettes and booze heavy diet and lack of exercise. It was the curse of his times and still is for a great many  people. He was otherwise a bull of man and a great dad.

And, as it's summer solstice for everyone in the northern hemisphere, Happy Summer Solstice to all. Also, Happy Winter Solstice to everyone in the southern hemisphere. The sun is just now making it's turn back your way.

Thank you very much--I hope to have a happy day. My son is coming over later and we are going out for lunch.
Here's to the mothers, who did all the work, probably, and the chillens without whom the fathers would have no excuse to play with toy trains.
Here's to our fathers who lived in an era unlike ours.
And here's to leaning into the sun.
