Father’s Day is right around the corner. It’s a day to honor all fathers even if they have passed away. I am lucky that my father is still in my life. He turned 80 in April and can still drive, fish and go to the casino. He has a few health problems and calls it, “a general wearing out process.” He didn’t like it when he couldn’t bowl anymore on his weekly Tuesday night league. He was in that league for over 30 years.
I am one of my dad’s three daughters. Since he didn’t have a son yet, we girls were thrown into the world of sports. We were playing little league when there were not many girls playing sports at the time. There wasn’t any sport my dad wasn’t good at. I remember when he beat my brother-in-law at ping pong using a hockey puck as a paddle. It was pretty funny.
