Business of Father's Day

The ultimate legacy

The big, annual dilemma.

Ties, caps, cards, T-shirts and coffee mugs line shelves at almost every store. They can care. They can love.

One way that children, no matter their age, can help dad is to become his workout buddy or at least be part of his exercise routine.

Here's a little tip, guys and gals.

Rounding out the list of top gifts for Pops: gift cards, clothing and Dad-friendly gadgets. The church that Bellamy attended provided the family with transitional housing for a year, giving Bellamy time to save money and get back on his feet.

My Father's Day gifts started last Friday. This past week, I brought up with a friend that Father's Day was this weekend.

"When I say no, I mean no. Why?" They're mine now. On Friday, I spent the entire morning golfing with Carter and Sterling.

All have been computerized, as with our cars, boats, tractors, even the many phones we have now and even play games and take them anywhere we go. And as a member of society, I know it's imperative that we work together to promote responsible fatherhood - in our nation and here in Southern Ohio.

White House says Trump looks forward to scheduling UK trip
If President Trump did secretly record his private White House meetings, he didn't enlist the Secret Service to help. The reporters questioned her about the conversations, and she told she did not whether the tapes existed or not.

Where would one put a bow on such times? In my own case, I saw my father's health suddenly change, seemingly overnight, as he went from being very active and independent all his life to almost bedridden and highly dependent on caregivers. Our boy, Jay, was going to surprise his lady Ashleigh by proposing on Sunday morning. I see his struggle to maintain his identity, what makes him special and unique, what makes him, well, him. What wells up through the eyes he gave me, through the hands he passed on, through the backbone he helped build, is a love so pure and profound that now, without him, it stings. She moved to Brooklyn, and it was the three of us. "It's been a journey with tough times, but it is also very rewarding".

"But to single out just one of our two parents and omit the other is the most grievous insult imaginable".

Try tying a ribbon around that feeling.

"No daughter of mine will date before she's 25". She's gonna have a baby, and it's due on Christmas Eve.

BJ's Brewhouse: Dads will receive a free pint glass on Sunday. There are a million everyday instances when my chest pangs with his absence - when I write, for instance, or when I read Shakespeare or watch old episodes of 30 Rock or see a particularly lovely sunrise. "But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years". Fathers spend lot of time taking care of household business with their children like sorting out girls' legendary difficulty with maths and boys' difficulty with verbal skills, helping them with homework or getting them to their hobby classes during vacation. I ain't saying he was proud, but his Facebook posts almost melted my computer.

Just as it does in the U.S., Father's Day falls on June 18 in Japan this year. He didn't even have to unwrap it.

I know I will not be the only one this Father's Day who feels orphaned amid the dizzying array of Hallmark cards. But I do like history because of him.
