Today is Father’s Day here is the good old USA. In New York, it is going to be another “Pleasant Valley Sunday” just like the song by The Monkeys. I do not know about the rest of the men in America but I will be outside with the smell of charcoal in the air. Just like the song says! I will be grilling and posting pictures on my Instagram account at DRUNKENCHEF82. Follow my entire day there.
Unbelievably, the United States did not make this wonderful celebration of Fatherhood a national Holiday until President Nixon signed it into law in 1972 and people say we are so progressive. Pffft. It has been celebrated around the world dating back as far as, oh I don’t know, 1910 maybe?
I love Holidays, Celebrations and Festivals or any excuse to drink and have a party. Hell, I would celebrate Leaf Ericson day for crying out loud if anyone would join me (Its October 9th)! Lets not rush the summer talking about October holidays…shall we. Today is a joyous occasion that we must celebrate with meat and potatoes or beer and whisky. In one day, it will be the summer solstice. That is a time to me for great sorrow, as it means from that day forward the day’s will be getting shorter.
Let celebrate today as the longest day it is! There is lots of time for barbequing, drinking and the smoking of fine cigars, if you so choose to do so. Does anyone even give out cigars for their child’s birth anymore? It’s probably not very Politically Correct (PC). Well. Excuse. Me. I do enjoy the occasional cigar with friends and glass of fine whiskey or shots of fireball. Hee-hee
Whatever you do do today make it joyful, happy, and please have fun and stay healthy while doing it!
Happy Daddy Day
