he had another son.
And spittin’ image is the correct terminology, since the men in my family have this thing about spitting into water.
A son wants to be like their Daddy, especially when they know he is a man worth measuring up to.
If Dad’s really had ten fingers on each hand, wouldn’t a back scratch feel AWESOME?
One thing I remember about Father’s Day (well any holiday that involves cards) and always will is Dad is big into cards, homemade cards especially.
Someone in our family (who shall be nameless) is notorious for running downstairs right before card time and scribbling out a card.
So, this Father’s Day I made a trophy and super nice card, I put those away and gave him a beat up lined piece of paper that had chicken scratches saying – Happy Father’s Day Love you-Jon.
He took it serious at first, read it and set it down. Then I whipped out the card and trophy and gave it to him, everyone started laughing hysterically. But, I appreciate Dad for wanting a nice homemade card that’s sentimental.
I Love You, Dad!
