Quit drinking, stop stalking Mom, get a job, and then I'll answer the phone when you call. Ohandiloveyougoddamnit

I told him a few hours ago thanks for watching the grandkid and he said he'd be here the same time tomorrow to pick her up.

We also like to have discussions like "What the hell is wrong with mom?" and "Boy, there sure are a lot of farking assholes around town lately, huh?"
 
2012-06-17 12:13:16 AM  
Take a farking shower and learn to chew with your mouth closed.

/love you, daddy
 
2012-06-17 12:13:36 AM  
Thanks for not pulling out!
 
2012-06-17 12:14:13 AM  
Ah damn. That brought me down. My last father's day with my Dad was 5 years ago. I would say so SO much if I could.
 
2012-06-17 12:14:18 AM  
Probably something about basketball recruiting.
 
2012-06-17 12:14:34 AM  
Your grandson and I love and miss you.
 
2012-06-17 12:14:52 AM  
Mine died in 1960. What would I say? How about that Kennedy for president?
 
2012-06-17 12:15:03 AM  
We'd probably talk baseball and AA.
 
2012-06-17 12:15:51 AM  
Me and him talked about the pups earlier... that is normal conversation... he said that the one dog was jealous I bought the other a bikini... I said the fatass wouldn't look good in a bikini...

Today I saw a schnauzer in an Avengers t-shirt.

I'm going golfing with my dad tomorrow, then I'm grilling a tasty shrimp dish that is one of his favorites. We'll probably talk about politics, the U.S. Open, and how much our beloved Phillies suck.
 
2012-06-17 12:18:16 AM  
I'm sure he is in bed, it is after 10 there. I wanted to go for the weekend and hang out with him and a couple other people near him but that just didn't work out. I'll call him on Monday and email him tomorrow.
 
2012-06-17 12:21:51 AM  
I talked to him a few hours ago, and sent cards and cinnamon roll muffins with my mom for him knowing they would be out of town tomorrow.

He is my very best friend. When I was little, I asked him to go get the moon and put it in my hands, and he was heartbroken that he couldn't. When I was older and in law school and freaked about the bar exam, he took a last-minute red-eye flight to come stay with me so I wouldn't be alone. I called them crying a week before, convinced I could never pass, and the next afternoon he called me to ask if he could buy me dinner and then rang my buzzer. I've always known he has my back, no matter what. My daddy is my favorite person.
 
2012-06-17 12:22:07 AM  
Dad, you need to get out of the house so you don't have to chain smoke, and I am going to feed you. You are a twig, and need to be fed real food.
 
2012-06-17 12:22:33 AM  
I've never had one of those.

I am in love with this picture.

My daddy always used to say to me "See you later, Alligator" before he left to go anywhere. When he died, I was 9 years old, and at the funeral, I said to him exactly what I would say today if I could: in a while, Crocodile.
 
2012-06-17 12:25:10 AM  
Thank you for everything. Meet your grandkids.
 
2012-06-17 12:25:38 AM  
I don't know why my sister feels the need to bash you relentlessly. You aren't perfect but you do have a kid that loves you dearly.
 
2012-06-17 12:26:20 AM  
I'm so sorry.

I'm sorry, man. Just pretend Chief O'Brian and Keiko adopted you.

We always tell each other "love you mostest." I can't not say it, just in case it's the last chance I get.
 
2012-06-17 12:28:01 AM  
I just wish my dad could have met my wife.
 
2012-06-17 12:28:13 AM  
Call me sometime, and you didn't fark up.

My dad is my hero. He's awesome, funny, loud, can take it as well as he can give it, is generous as hell, has a smile for everyone, and is a stubborn old German. He also saved my life about 6 months ago.

So now I'm going down to make him his breakfast muffins for tomorrow (sausage, egg and cheese), and I'll post this to illustrate him.

I'm going to tell my adoptive father "Hey, happy Father's Day. Hope things are going well over there. No, I don't know when I'm going to make it back out to your side of the state. *try to make awkward small talk for a few minutes* I gotta get to work, I'll catch up with you soon".

I'm going to tell my half-brother to tell his father (my bio father) "Happy Father's Day, I'd call you if you had a phone. I'd email you if you had Internet. Get with the 1900's dude."
 
2012-06-17 12:28:46 AM  
I want to wish that you'd stayed around, but based on everything I know about you I'm glad you didn't. I'd like to know more about what you went through in Vietnam. Thanks for the cool last name.
 
2012-06-17 12:29:01 AM  
Still be here.
 
2012-06-17 12:30:59 AM  
Thank you for inspiring me to surpass you in every way. Now that I've done it please die on peace and continue leaving me and my son alone. We're fine thanks to someone showing me what not to do.

When I was 6, I have a vivid memory of being angry with my dad for some stupid little kid reason (probably wouldn't buy me a toy or made me do my chores), and he left to go to work and said "later Alligator" and I didn't say anything. I was so distraught when he walked out the door I ran down the street after his truck and screamed "in a while, Crocodile". I cried all day until he got home and I found out he heard me. What I'd give to be able to say it to him now...

I remember you posting that second picture in other threads. It always makes me chuckle.
 
2012-06-17 12:32:13 AM  
You have diabetes. You have to stop drinking and smoking. And for the love of God, please don't leave me alone with mom.

/At least leave me one good memory of you (he died when I was seven)
 
2012-06-17 12:32:24 AM  
You're an asshole but you didn't know better. Happy farkin' father's day.
 
2012-06-17 12:32:43 AM  
Mine is alive and well so there is no "what if" to it.

Grandpas on the other hand, well it would probably be small talk instead of anything important per say, but I'd give anything I had to give to see them again.
 
2012-06-17 12:33:08 AM  
I honestly can't thank you enough for my inheritance.

bkeyport: I just wish my dad could have met my wife.


Truth (except I mean my husband).

Also, I feel like my kids are never going to know a huge part of me because they will never know my dad. Sucks balls. I totally understand why people want to believe in an afterlife.

You survived WWII as a German draftee, complete with time spent in a POW camp in France and unknowingly walking through mine fields while escaping from it, you went on to emigrate to the U.S., get a PhD., and become a leading expert in your field, but dammit you told me you were disappointed that I only went as far as a Bachelor's degree. Now, I sometimes wish I had gone further in my education.

That only serves to make the picture that much better.

The farking doctor told you to stop smoking, drinking and using salt or you'd be dead in six weeks..............You didn't heed the warning..........You have been dead for almost 31 years now.

/You were only 42
//Has a sad

Thankfully I still can and will:

Dad, thank you for everything:
-For life itself.
-For working so hard to provide for us.
-For always putting us first, even when we weren't there.
-For rescuing me and my brother from the living hell we endured while living with our mother after she left you for that asshole. Until I get married and have kids, the day we came to live with you is still the greatest day of my life.
-For letting us do our own thing and be ourselves.
-For treating your step-son from your last marriage as a true son, even after the divorce, and in doing so providing me a brother much closer to me than my blood brother.
-For continuing to provide for us and put us first after you became disabled and it would have been so easy to say you couldn't do this or that.
-For never giving up, on any of us or yourself, no matter what the doctors told you.
-For giving us absolutely everything we needed and a good number of the things we merely wanted.
-For helping me through college and letting me follow my own path, as unclear as that was at times.
-For still putting us first even after we all became adults and begged you to stop spoiling us and focus on yourself.
-For your humor, sarcasm and wit which taught me not to take myself too seriously.
-For everything, you are amazing and an inspiration to me.

I know I talk about my dad on here quite a bit, there's a reason for that.

It's been almost two years since you committed suicide.

The only part that annoyed me was the fact that you killed yourself at home in the garage, versus going somewhere else where your wife wouldn't have to discover you herself.

I know you didn't feel good, and I know your marbles were not in their holes anymore and I still believe it's okay to have a say-so as to when it's time to go.

But doing it at home?

Epic fail.
