Happy Father’s Day

Father’s Day is believed to have been first observed on June 19, 1910, in Spokane, Washington, by Sonora Smart Dodd, a Christian woman and the daughter of American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart. Sonora’s mother died when she was age 16, and she wanted a day that would commemorate and honor fathers like her own, who had raised her and five other children.

She began soliciting the idea of an official Father’s Day, but she met some opposition and even derision, but she persevered. A bill was introduced in Congress in 1913, and in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson spoke at a Father’s Day celebration in Spokane, Washington, wanting to make it an official holiday, but Congress still resisted. In 1924, Calvin Coolidge became involved, and in 1930 a national committee was formed by various trade groups in an effort to legitimize the holiday. Continue reading “Happy Father’s Day”


Taking a Small Break

Taking a Small BreakI know it’s been a few days since I posted last. I am taking a month’s break. I need to re-energize thanks for understanding. See you soon!

Some Things are Better Left Unsaid

Some Things are Better Left UnsaidSome things are better left unsaid. No, I am not talking about the Daryl Hall & John Oates song either. Some things I think one should take to the grave with them. Take for instance Grandpa was very old and very sick.

He was bedridden and was dying. He decided he was going to get years and years of things he had done wrong, bad things that he had done.

I told him he didn’t need to tell me these things but he insisted. I didn’t want to upset him as I knew he was not going to last much longer. He started out by telling me that when he was 14 years old he shot and killed a boy that was three years younger than him. Continue reading “Some Things are Better Left Unsaid”

Killer Book Part Two

killer bookDaniel and the officer talked about the book and the officer wanted to take it but Daniel wouldn’t let him. Daniel said he needed to continue reading it to find out what was going to happen next. The officer said well there isn’t a crime being committed so there is nothing we can do.

Which Daniel already knew this because it was written in the book. Daniel poured himself another cup of coffee and started reading again.  He began reading another chapter and the book said he had already encountered the killer, but didn’t give any description or names. Daniel was at a loss, he had already met his killer but had no clue who it was or what they looked like or a name or anything. Continue reading “Killer Book Part Two”

What Is a Hero

What Is a HeroWhat is a hero? What does it take to be a hero? Some people have basketball, football, baseball, soccer, etc. players for their heroes.

Others like to make their favorite actor or even a cartoon character as their hero. It was when I was growing up I was probably seven or eight years old.  That is when I stopped using my hero and learned about true heroes. Continue reading “What Is a Hero”
