Opinion: The best job a man can have

The most important job I’ve ever had has been that of being a father. I’d rather fail at anything else I ever tried than fail at that, and the good news is that doesn’t seem to be the case. The kids have done themselves alright.

And for that, I have the model of my own father to thank.

Happy Father’s Day weekend, everyone.

This one is for all the dads who may not have had a biological child, but chose to become a father nonetheless.  To all the step-fathers, foster-fathers, and BigBrothers who have stepped up and put in the time to show someone else’s child that they are loved:

^^^ that's the one thing I've never doubted about you, jay, and the highest compliment I can offer a man.

Enjoy!

Kudos JB! Job well done. I couldn't agree with you more.

To all the fathers, good job!

Since everyone is talking about their Dads this Father's Day weekend I'll share a bit about mine.


He married one woman.

He worked six days a week but never had a career.

He served his country in the Army.

He was home every night for supper.

He cooked breakfast and supper for the family 5 days a week.

He never hit his children, though we feared him.

He could fix anything that was broken.

He did laundry and mopped floors.

He allowed his children to learn from their mistakes.

He never voted for a Democrat.

He nursed his wife of 50+ years throughout her fatal battle with cancer.

He paid for the college education of his children out of his pocket.

He served the community.

He never retired because he never had a real job.  He just does less.

He's no musician, can't carry a tune, and recalls snippets of song lyrics that he sings over and over, but this sappy song always touched me, because Daddy is the leader of our band.

My father taught me to dance by my standing on top of his large feet and twirling around the floor with his leading me.


His beautiful spirit leads me, still, in the dance of life where love, communication, public service and helping others to rise, along with myself, matters.


"Love never fails."  Just for you, Daddy.

My Dad taught me how to guzzle booze and chase women in Vegas. So I have many children spread out in this country. I told them to send weed.

My Dad, long dead now set an example by putting family first, he was poorly educated as a child but worked hard and stressed the importance of improving one's self throughout one's entire life.

As a father and grandfather thanks Jay! And I got my start from my step father who loved me as his own.
