One activity my family used to enjoy on Father's Day was heading off for the day into the mountains and having a picnic lunch. That is of course if my dad was not out working in the field as he is a farmer. If he did have work to do we would simply try to have dinner together as a family.
For this Father's Day I plan to spend the day at the farm hanging out with my dad, maybe watching the Blue Jays ball game on television together. My dad unfortunately cannot take part in activities as he used to due to health issues associated to arthritis. He has been confined to a wheelchair for the last few years having to endure and withstand extreme amounts of constant pain. Having to live the way that he does is hard to watch day in and out and for that reason my dad is my hero (even if he can be frustrating as hell)!
Even if we cannot celebrate Father's Day as we used to I am still going to make sure that my dad knows how much he means to me!
Interesting tidbit: There are some who believe Father's Day originated with pagan sun worship. The first Father's day was apparently celebrated in Spokane, Washington on June 19, 1910.
Thought of the day: Why do your feet smell and your nose runs?
