Happy Father’s Day

Minor H Slingsby 1939 2It’s a nice day here in the Seattle area, so that’s good for people having picnics or barbecues on Father’s Day.

If you’re having lunch or dinner out, I hope you find a restaurant that works well for you as the pandemic continues to wind down.

What did you get your dad for a Father’s Day present?

Did you avoid the gifts on this list of what not to buy dad? I agree with most of them. However, I don’t agree that “world’s best dad’s items” are bad gifts. I really liked giving my dad a world’s best dad cup. He liked getting it, and I enjoy seeing it every day in my cupboard and remembering my dad now that he’s gone.

I’ve been thinking about my dad, Minor H. Slingsby, today. I wrote an article about him. He was a stern man, but he and my mom taught me good values.

My dad died in 1990 at age 80 from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a lymphatic system cancer. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is linked to pesticide exposure. My dad was a farmer.

I miss my dad. I wish he could have been with us longer.
