Happy Father's Day

While my late father is always in and on my mind, Father's Day sharpens my thoughts of him.

My father was a huge fan of Hank Williams and his music. I, on the other hand, being a child of the rock and roll era, hated listening to what I came to call (although never in his presence) $h!t-kicking music.

So it was a little bittersweet today when I decided to treat myself to a steak for lunch at a place outside Des Moines called Texas Roadhouse. While the food is great, their choice of music is sad. Yep, you guessed it, they play country-western songs. While I tried to block out the awful stuff, my attention was suddenly grabbed when I heard the (unfortunately, lol) familiar strains of "Hey Good Lookin'" over the sound system.

Dad would have enjoyed it.

Today, I'm fortunate enough to have a fantastic father-in-law who is dear to my heart, and a wonderful son-in-law who is a great father to my grandchildren. I hope they both know that I love them and wish them a very Happy Father's Day.
