It's that special time of year when each of us takes stock of our relationship to dear old dad and shops for the appropriate necktie to give him on Father's Day. To make this gift extra-personal, it's customary to include a thoughtful note, telling your dad what makes him special.
I was listening to the radio a few days ago and someone mentioned that Father's Day is less special than Mother's Day. I thought about it for a second and came to the conclusion that it might just be true.
Today when were tossing around songs Mike could choose for the Blue Plate Special, we started talking about songs that mention Dad, since Father's Day is Sunday. Have you ever noticed how many are so sad?
