    Some fathers, through their actions and words, teach their kids how to live and love well. Some do not. As a wise friend told me a few years ago, there are gifts in both if you really think about it.

    A Happy Father's Day to all. icon_smile.gif

    Happy Father's Day, Dads and Dads To Be.

    I'm hanging out with my 11 yr old son and 9 yr old daughter and lovin' it.

    Be well

    David





    [size=10]PS: If you're not in a position to be dad, think about spending some time with a relative's kid or volunteer as Big Brother, school or sports mentor, etc. The more good men in kids' lives, the better. You'll probably learn tons about yourself in the process and feel great too.[/size]

    I'm glad this is a little more upbeat than last year's Father's Day threads which were completely downers. Many people shared stories of their horrible experiences with their fathers. While it made me thankful for my dad, it was depressing that so many guys do not have a good relationship with their father.

    Anyhoo, here's my ideal for fatherhood.

    My father was career military and often away when I was young. After my parents divorced I seldom saw him. Then as a poor student in Paris many years later a check arrived every month like clockwork which kept me alive. When my dad finally retired after almost 30 years he came to live with me and my partner Bill in Las Vegas. It was all very different but he was an integral part of my everyday family during those years like we never were when I was young. Out of normal sequence I had a warm and pleasant and happy relationship with my father. Happy Fathers Day to all Real Jock dads - may your children be able to bridge differences and love you for the man you are and for the love you give them.

    I have never known what it is to have a dedicated, loving father, nor will I ever be blessed with being a loving dad myself ...

    Nevertheless, I would love to extend my heartfelt, kind wishes to those pops out there in having a wonderful, terrific Father's Day!! Enjoy the day, dads!!

    To all the father's out there, doesn't matter if your straight or gay, for your love of your kids and those around you has made their lives better thanks to you.

    This day is for you to sit back, enjoy the day and reflect, "I am a great dad."

    Men in this country get a bad rap and hardly anything positive is ever shown about the real men who are the great fathers. My father was never my dad. My parents' divorced when I was just under 2 years old and my mom and her parents raised me along with my dad's grandmother. To say that he didn't have an effect on my life would wrong. For a very long time, I hated him for what he did to me and my mom after I was old enough and found out the truth. That truth is part of the reason I am the man I am today. I don't know if he would have accepted me as a gay son (he died when I was 13), but I do know he would be proud of having a son who stands up for what he believes, stands on his own two feet and tries always to see the good in things, even when it is painfully obvious to all around. I didn't know my father, but he taught me alot about being a man and for that I thank him.

    So, even if you don't have the greatest father/son relationship, you father still has a profound effect on you. Smile, if for no other reason than that for having him as your father.

    A special shoutout to the dads I have become pals with through real jock:

    tas_515-http://www.realjock.com/profile/?id=39009

    jprichva-http://www.realjock.com/profile/?id=201156

    and of course to baldone (started this thread), ironman4U , toybrian, xysx and all the guys here and everywhere who are the brothers, uncles, cousins and stepdads who are father figures to so many kids who don't have or know their natural fathers. It is a good thing to be chosen as a dad figure. Happy Fathers Day to all of you!

    Such a bittersweet thread for me this time 'round. My 3-year-old is 3600 miles away (I am traveling for work).
    But at least we can get on the webcam later tonight and then I'll feel better.

    Happy Dad's Day to y'all! : )

    Thanks!


    My parents and sisters and God-children got me nice presents, but my favorite ones came from my kids-- crayon drawings of me and them. I can't wait to get them framed and put up in my office.

    When they woke me up this morning, telling me Happy Father's Day Daddy-that was the best gift of all
