Father's Day...

SUMMARY: notes from facebook June 6, '16
Backfill: Didn't post this until August 2, 2016

A friend posted on Facebook today:
Just realized for the first time in my life, I don't have to worry about Father's Day plans.
That was a blow.
And I replied--
I've been going through exactly the same thing this year. And we are not alone [based on other comments I've seen on FB lately]. 
I've been seeing or hearing things that might have turned into nice father's day gifts (such as activities), and then -- oh, right. 
I empathize. It's interesting how Father's Day was no big deal--I did try to do something most years, even just a card--but now, this year, it looms large.
Several additional people noted on this post, "Same here," or the equivalent.

And then, of course, this reminder from another person:
25 years for me this year...and it still will be sad
Fathers are both not forever and forever.

I look a lot like my dad.
