Muchas Gracias, Daddy-O

On CBS Sunday Morning show, the Father’s Day tribute was to our dads no longer here and those adults lucky enough to still have their Daddy-Os around. It’s that sort of day for me, where I’m a bit heavy of heart thinking about my father, and on the flip side, joyous to see my husband basking in the glow of his sons’ love.
From my bilingual boyz to their jefe, a Father’s Day card with a kick of kitsch – the sombrero’s dingle balls are felt!

and inside, notes of gratitude… A card and handwritten sentiments – the best parent-present there is!

And speaking of presents: Backyard Daddy-O Giveaway lucky winners are ejaskol & aialvarez7.

4 years: My Daddy can do anything!
7 years: My Dad knows a lot…a whole lot.
8 years: My father does not know quite everything.
12 years: Oh well, naturally Father does not know that either.
14 years: Oh, Father? He is hopelessly old-fashioned.
21 years: Oh, that man-he is out of date!
25 years: He knows a little bit about it, but not much.
30 years: I must find out what Dad thinks about it.
35 years: Before we decide, we will get Dad’s idea first.
50 years: What would Dad have thought about that?
60 years: My Dad knew literally everything!
65 years: I wish I could talk it over with Dad once more.

Have a Happy,
Tie One On…an apron, of course!


  1. How could I have missed that ‘what Dad knows’ poem? It made me want to cry… I lost my Dad at age 3 to a heart attack; he was only 33!
    I will copy that little diddy and keep it!
