Father Knows Best

Did you watch that show when you were growing up? I guess I'm telling my age by admitting I did. Robert Young always had the right answers and solutions. My Father always told me, 'Don't do as I do, Do as I tell you.' I lost my father at a very young age. He was only 53. I was a 'Daddy's Girl.' Growing up I thought my Dad could do not wrong. Honor your parents. Hold them close. Ask them all the questions you might want to know now, because you never know when they won't be around any more. Remember Dad this Father's Day. Send him a greeting card with my compliments.

When I think of June, I think of Father's Day, weddings, and the beginning of summer. What do you think of when you think of June?

Here are the Quirky Holidays for June

June 2 - Yell "Fudge" at the Cobras in North America Day -- Anywhere north of the Panama Canal. In order to keep poisonous cobra snakes out of North America, all citizens are asked to go outdoors at noon local time and yell “fudge!” Fudge makes cobras gag, and the mere mention of it makes them skeedaddle.

June 14 - Family History Day -- Every summer family reunions are so busy with bingo and volleyball, most of us forget the true purpose: to share the folklore, legends and myths that bind us together. Each participant is expected to share at least one good recollection (fact or fiction). Don’t forget the hot dogs and lemonade.

June 22 - Stupid Guy Thing Day -- Women are always talking about it, so here's the day to commemorate it! Women everywhere are to make a list of "stupid guy things" and pass it on!

June 23 - Let It Go Day -- Whatever it is that’s been grabbing your gut or your psyche, let it go. Just let it go. It’ll be a better day afterwards.

June 24 - Celebration of the Senses -- Treat yourself to a stimulation of the 5 senses—taste, touch, scent, sight and sound—and you will experience the elevation known as the elusive sixth sense.
