Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

Father’s Day

Oftentimes on Father’s Day, I have some sort of anecdote about my dad. Today, nothing is coming to mind, but I’m thinking about him just the same. Doubly, because tomorrow would have been his birthday.

So I’ll keep this short and uncharacteristically sweet. To all my friends out there who are fathers (Craig, Wolfie, SecretSpanko, just to name a few), I hope you’ve gotten the proper attention and appreciation today. For those who have fathers and are lucky enough to have good relationships with them, tell them you love them.

Miss you today, Dad. Love you always.

  5. I miss my folks, too. Dad ended up being a sweet old man. He was 92.In that picture, you do look like your dad, though you had features of your mom, too. And your smile! I recognized that right away. It is a very nice picture and you do have some good memories. Those are the ones to hold on to. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Thanks, Erica!I was surrounded by three of my four kids, enjoying dim sum, and they actually treated me! A first! I made dinner for Father's Day–something I truly wanted to do. I enjoy cooking–I find it relaxing–and Sunday dinners with the family is a tradition I haven't had time to keep up on much lately. So all in all, some nice moments. Thanks for thinking of me!

  9. If my father was still alive he would be 100 next year. A rather hard man because of his background (his father died in December 1929, meaning he and his brother had to leave high school and go timber cutting so their mother could get "sustenance" payments for herself and their young sister) he still cared a lot about us and made sure we ate well and got educated. A massive heart attack took him at 77.John
