In Honor of Father's Day

For all the other fathers out there.
Just a couple of father's day facts.  Mother's Day is the busiest phone day of the year:
"We found that Mother's Day is far and away the most popular day to place phone calls across the world, registering more calling traffic than any other holiday, including New Year's and Valentine's Day."
Father's Day has the highest number of collect calls of the year:
It gets better. Children often call dad to send their love but do so on his dime: Father's Day traditionally marks the year's busiest collect-call day for AT&T. And those who remember to send greeting cards do so in significantly smaller numbers.
So my wish is simple: enjoy your day.  Have a barbecue.  Do some shooting or fishing or something you like.  Or do Absolutely Nothing.

And if you kids still make collect calls, pay for it.


  1. Not sure this is the right area, but I guess should be under the "old Florida" section...

    So kinda Father's Day.

    Remember these guys?

    Made a bad tostada tonight at home, searched on Taco Viva, and voila...

  2. I sure do. I'm pretty sure the first taco I ever had was in a Boca Raton Taco Bell. About 1975, IIRC.
