Father's Day Fun

 by Joe Hickman

You can tell it's almost Father's Day. The kids suddenly want to stop at all the garage sales.

Sunday is Father's Day, the day we honor dear old dad -- if we can find him. Good places to look:

- At the golf course -- in the rough.
- At the bank -- cursing the ATM machine.
- On top of the house -- trying to hook up the dish before the game starts.
- Under the car -- watching the oil drip.
- At the hardware store bragging to a total stranger about his kids.

I know what I'm getting for Father's Day. My daughter asked me what size aftershave I wear.

I always get aftershave. Last year I got raspberry. My daughter made it -- out of corn oil and Kool Aid. At church, people around me sniffed through the whole sermon.

Want to really surprise your dad on Father's Day? Ask him for advice. Clean out the garage for him. Tell him you love him a whole hardware-store-full. Ask him to autograph a baseball.

Last year on Father's Day we took Dad to an all-you-can-eat buffet, and then brought him home and sat him in front of an all-you-can-watch TV.

Dads don't return their Father's Day gifts to the exchange counter. This means fathers are satisfied with what they got -- or too ashamed to let anyone see what they got.
