Father's Day

I hope fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers and anyone that is in a father-like relationship is enjoying their day.

My Dad, a very young 86, lives in Vancouver and I will not see him today although I did interrupt his breakfast this morning to wish him a happy day! My Dad is my hero and my inspiration. He is an artist and still active in a weekly art group, lives on his own with his dog, gets out for daily walks, has a wicked and droll
sense of humour and strives to enjoy each day to the fullest. The one thing I don't like is that my dad no longer resides in Ontario - Vancouver is so far away!

A much younger me and my Dad (check out that tie with the suit!)

Some oldie pics of Dads and children:

Love the expression on the little girl's face!

To Dads everywhere and to my Dad especially, may your day be one of delight and joy!

What a nice tribute to your father. I skipped off to see his work, and I love it!! He is very good at his paintings, drawing, and his cartoons were great. Does he sell his work??? I would love a drawing or painting? He sounds like a great guy!
