  •  OMG. Your obvious excuse? (6+ / 0-)

    Sunday is FATHER'S Day!  I was just thinking about getting the card for my Dad ready to mail tomorrow (CO is pretty much one day delivery).

    Bear on the front is behind a tree asking "Dad, throw me a roll of TP." On the inside I will write "I promise not to use more than 3 pieces, but you can't thro them."  Which is a reference to a rule he set his 3 young daughters - that we didn't need more than 3 sheets for #1. I can remember thinking, 'how would you know?'. Which I told him a few decades later, and got a grin.

    My sisters and I have sent each other more than one card several times because we couldn't decide - and there's no law about only sending one.

    This could be his version of what you did for your Mom that day you didn't think she would make it out alive.

    One of the things I haven't forgotten from a seminar 20 + years ago. 'We never know when someone we love will be gone. Keep your 'I love yous' up to date.' Even if it is just a special handshake.
