So I started writing about Fathers, and my Father in particular, about their influences on us children, history and such. But I started to get bored. My Father was a good man and did his job (he passed away last year at 90). He did his duty in the war, worked hard, provided well and well, you can see where I was going… My kid’s I’m sure will feel the same way, I didn’t fight in any war (thank goodness), but I provided, I was there for them, but….
So what I did was I just looked around on the net and found some quotes of famous fathers and a little humour (that right now kinda hits home I’m sure with a lot of us middle aged parents. Enjoy!
