Happy Father's Day!



To all the wonderful fathers I know - most especially mine - Thanks!





A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again. ~Enid Bagnold









He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. ~Clarence Budington Kelland







Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father! ~Lydia M. Child, Philothea: A Romance, 1836













My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys." ~Harmon Killebrew










I don't care how poor a man is; if he has family, he's rich. ~M*A*S*H,
Colonel Potter













"A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty." -- Unknown

















“The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.” -David O. McKay











"I never had a chance to choose the man to be my Dad - But I sure thank my lucky stars for the taste my Mother had."
