    Smile Happy Father's Day!

    Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!

    What are your plans for the day?
    Did you get any cool Father's Day gifts?


    I have to work today But I am going to visit my Dad after work. My wife and son gave me a new flag for our house (I seem to go through one a year ), a Sabre's sweatshirt, and a HD gift card.

    Update: from my Mom & Dad- 4pc straight router bit set from rockler (1/2 in shank ) and a Rockler Gift Card --- Score!

    Yeah, happy Father's day to you all!

    I got one of the best gifts a Dad can get, I got to sleep in (10 AM!! ) and I got left alone most of the day while they went shopping, to flower arranging classes and such, then in the evening, I got the call up from the Dungeon, and fed a feast of some of my favorite foods!

    Back down to the Dungeon for a few pics of the Phoenix build and now I'm checking up on you guys and then to bed, not a bad day at all!

    Cheers!

    Stu,

    Is Father's Day celebrated in Japan? Or is it a North American tradition that you "imported"?

    Nope, not me personally.

    Yes, it is celebrated here.

    After nearly a month of weekends doing yard work and general chores I finally got the weekend to myself and worked in the shop - did nothing but clean, organize, and rearrange. Boy, it felt good!
