Happy Father’s Day

If you’re in the US, or other countries that celebrate fathers and fatherhood today, Happy Father’s Day.

Yesterday, I dedicated a post to my dad. He’s been gone almost 35 years, but I still miss him. Today, I offer the simple wish expressed in the title and a few of my favorite moments as a father (in the gallery).


  1. Nice! I always love the rain slicker photo! Queen of Monopoly is also good, tee-hee — her ruling face! I think you’re both lucky and proud to have one another :) Happy Father’s Day!

  2. Really nice post Dan. Faith was cute as a button as a youngster, but has blossomed into a stunningly beautiful woman. ‘Course, let’s be fair, the Editor had a little something to do with that as well!!

    You guys have such a close, loving relationship…..it’s a beautiful thing.

    But I gotta tell you Dan, Faith pulled off the rain slicker waaayyyy better than you! Just sayin’……

    Hope you’re having a well-deserved Happy Father’s Day surrounded by all your girls and one guy! 😄

    1. Thanks Ginger. She’s much more photogenic (and much nicer to look at). I’m just glad we’re still having fun. The Editor gets a lot of credit and my mom gets a bunch, also. But, isn’t that usually the case?


  3. Hi Dan – gosh Maddie is getting read to .. she’s one lucky family dog! Great photos of you as a Dad with your delightful daughter, Faith … wonderful to see them all – littlie through growing older – great range … cheers and hope you’ve had a happy day and the rest together … cheers Hilary

          1. I had to cheat to win! Sad but true … when you’re the eldest age 10 or so … you can sit on the $50 bills or whatever denomination they were … = can’t do those funny things! Cheers H

  4. It seems like the longer my dad’s been gone, the closer I feel to him. But it hasn’t even been two years, so who knows. Thank God for memories. Yours here are beautiful and still in the making! I hope you had a good Father’s Day.

  5. Hope you had a nice Father’s Day, Dan! Nice pics, of course — some of which your regular readers will certainly recognize.

    Curious about one thing, though. You have the one where you say how it was a special treat to take Faith to her first Pirates game, and I’m wondering if she was really an adult before you guys did that. I mean, hey, maybe that’s just how it worked out, but I would have guessed you’d have taken her as a child or at least as a teen. Of course, maybe she wasn’t interested before then.

    1. Thanks Paul. We didn’t actually get to Pittsburgh until Faith was an adult. We went other places, but not there. We had been there before I took her to a Pirates, game, but only once for a short whirlwind tour.

  6. Best Father’s Day post ever!! … a different and very touching twist from the perspective of a father.

    I loved each and every photo. They tell of a special relationship between you and your daughter. Both of you are extremely lucky … but I suspect you already knew that! 🙂
