Happy Father's Day
I got the Pops a fifth of Knob Creek Straight Bourbon whiskey. It apparently arrived just in time, because his Gentleman Jack was just about finished. The giving of whiskey for such occasions has become sort of a tradition among my family (and friends). It came about because, what else can I get my Pops that he will derive such enjoyment from? He has all the tools he needs for his garden & yard, power tools would kill him, anything for the house would be (in reality) a present for my Mom, any electronic device would raise his blood pressure, and he's a better cook than me at this point.
And unlike some folks, my Father knows how to enjoy a good glass of bourbon. Sort of a nod to my father and my father's father. And that makes the decision easy.
