It is said that Father's Day is the Rodney Dangerfield of manufactured holidays. It gets "little respect" and that could be because a father's contribution to the conception, care and feeding of his children pales in comparison to that of the mother. But does that mean that a dad loves his kids less than their mom. I think not.
Speaking for myself, there is little I would not have done-- or to bring it into the now, would do-- to ensure the health, wealth and happiness of our three. As I see it, that's a dad's main job-- on father's day and all the days of his life.

my last day at BSAHS was last Saturday. can it have been just seven days ago?
because my usual days off were sunday, monday, tuesday and wednesday, to me, my first realized day of retirement was thursday past.
without the structure of the coming work week, without that point of reference, i find myself asking--"what day is this?"
surely that won't last forever. i have hawaii to look forward to, if the tomorrows between now and then will just hurry themselves into yesterdays.
after that i guess i'll just have to see.
