"Here is to all the fathers out there who have been able to believe in their children no matter what."

"What are you doing, Dad?" "Not a hole lot."

1. When driving past a graveyard: People are dying to get in there!
2. "Dad, I'm thirsty." "Hi, Thursday! I'm Friday!"
3. "Put the cat out." "I didn't know it was on fire!"
4. "Where's your bin?" "I haven't been anywhere!"
5. "Dad, can you put my shoes on?" "No, they don't fit me!"
6. "Pull my finger!"

It's Father's Day! Enjoy your day with the fathers' in your life and let them know what they mean to you. The first Father's Day was June 19, 1910 as a result of the efforts of Sonora Smart Dodd from Spokane, Washington. During speeches for Mother's Day, she reflected about her father who raised 6 kids by himself after their mother had passed away. She wanted a way to honor the sacrifices her father made so she spearheaded a Father's Day movement for the 3rd Sunday of June.
