But today is about dads. Fathers. Papas. And I go on and on about my mother a lot. She's one of my best friends. But Dad doesn't get to have a fanfare that often. So here's to my dad: a marvelous principal (I should know - he was in charge of my MS/HS years), a great teacher, a pretty decent racecar driver (back in the day), a farmer (now more of a gardener, but he had champion livestock in his time), a voracious reader, a general fix-it man, and - best of all - a supportive father. This day is for you.
Happy Father's Day! I hope his retirement is as great as his career has been. He deserves it.
