With many thanks to list member Kim Quiggle and our Facebook friendship, I will point you today to Perpetual Kid for some unique and creative Father's Day gifts.
YOU MIGHT BE A FATHER IF....
...you hear yourself saying, "Go ask your mother."
...you've ever used the expression, "Because I said so!"
...your favorite football team plays in the City Little League.
...your favorite expression around children is, "When I was your age...."
...you have to get down on your knees to receive and give a proper hug.
...in your garage, the smell of dirty diapers has replaced the aroma of motor oil.
...you no longer carry any meaningful amount of cash.

WORD for YOUR WEEK: Some people have stoic personalities. That means they generally don't show much emotion; they appear indifferent to either good news or bad news. Back in Ancient Greece, a philosopher named Zeno taught that one should be free from passion, unmoved by either grief or elation, then and only then could one make logical and rational decisions about life. Zeno would have made a marvelous Vulcan. He taught on a large porch in Athens, with tall marble columns. The porch was called a stoa. The people who listened and followed his teachings were called Stoics.
