    Not here in NZ (we wait until September)
    but Google still chose to have a Fathers' Day doodle!

    Strange ... they normally taylor things for NZ.
    Did they just make a mistake?

    Sunday is Father's day in the US.

    Personally I do not see the purpose of these days if you are just going to see your parents on a handful of special days.

    The purpose of Fathers' Day is that I get breakfast cooked for me!

    "Or so" does sound, well... vague Dad.

    I sincerely wish us all a fine day.
    Fatherhood is easy.
    Being a parent is tough.

    I was thinking of writing a parents guide to parenting but my kids suggested otherwise. For the life of me, I can't figure out why. 🤔

    Because you had to make mistakes because nobody warned you about anything. Same thing goes for marriage in general.

    First Father's Day without my dad.

    We went fishing last year. He said, "Presence is the best present."

    I miss him more than I can say.
