Happy father's day...

Pictured above with my sister back in the early 80s, I'd argue my dad is and always has been seriously cool. Ever since I can remember he has had a beard. He shaved it off once when I was 19 and it totally freaked me out... he didn't look like my dad and luckily he very quickly grew it back. He also has only ever worn Rayban aviators... the big ones that are totally black and curl around the back of your ear. He's totally laid back and I think if my mom hadn't come along and forced him to buy some new clothes he'd still probably be wearing the same tennis shoes (which notoriously had holes throughout them so his toes could poke out the front), worn out jeans and Members Only jackets. Now he's a Tommy Bahama polo shirt and Italian loafers kind of man.... I guess some things have to change over time. But, beard or no beard (bucket or no bucket).... he's still the same dad underneath it all. He's spent his adult days working in the desert in the Middle East and as a result always has the best tan. Once he came back from Turkey and had let his hair grow out long and I swear he looked just like Indiana Jones. He loves computer games, must have over a thousand dvds, and always has the coolest and newest electronic gadgets. My brother in law waited in line overnight in the middle of the winter to get him the Nintendo Wii when it first came out and his name was one of the first on the waiting list for the i-pad. Even though my friends swear that he's a secret agent (there's even a facebook group in honour of the conspiracy) he is a pretty big softy. He's my identical hand twin and I'd argue the best dad in the whole world...
Happy Father's Day Dad!
