I hope every Father had a wonderful Father's day ....We did Michael got a movie and cards from both the boys and me......We just stayed around the house today....We did church this morning... then after lunch, we swam and then I was reading the paper and in this day and age blended families are very common I came across this poem....
Not Her Father
Hey, it's really not "your day."
I just don't know what else to say
Because, you see, you're just a "step,"
You're not her dad-you're just a "rep,"-
A stand-in really, rest assured
you're only there to be endured.
OH! Unless she needs a ride,
or someone there to take her side,
And please have money you can lend;
'Cause that's when you will have a friend.
She's not your daughter, though, be clear;
You're not her dad, just someone here.
There's really lots for you to do;
And you get all the "good jobs," too;
You get to worry when she's late,
Pick her up from her late date,
Comfort her when she's in tears,
And try to calm her teenage fears.
And you will get to love her, too,
Even though she won't love you.
You'll get to care for her each day,
And see my daughter doesn't stray
From the rules that you will get to make-
She won't admit they're for her sake!
She thinks stepdads just aren't "fun,"
You're just as boring as her mom.
You're only there (you must concede)
To see that she's got all she needs!
Father's Day? Nah, she won't bother
Thanking you- you're not her father!
So let me do it in her stead,
As I have done since we were wed.
Thanks for all the things you do,
And all you-are I love you, too.
Happy Father's Day
My dad is walking the streets of gold with Jesus and his dad...To all men young and old with us or with Jesus...Happy Father's Day

I am a Soap Opera nut, I absolutely love General Hospital Here is the famous Luke and Laura Love story saga for over 25 years and this is Robin Scorpio she grew up ...I have watched it for years I know it is bad for me and I shouldn't watch it but I just love it Sonny Corinthos and Jason Morgan they are just bad boys they are just cutiebuttooties ( I think I may have just created a new word...they are like gangsters on the show ( The Mob) really whatever that means and then there is Alan and Emily Quartermaine they have been killed but their ghosts are still on the show helping their loved ones make decisions....Emily even found her own killer for Nicholas Cassadine....On another note I have not watched any reality TV shows but we did start Can You Duet on CMT it's pretty good I am sure I will get into more realty TV shows this fall ..Well that is enough of my ramblings hope everyone has a great Tuesday
