Father's Day is coming up Sunday (June 21st).

Sunday we'll be celebrating dad and thanking him for being there for us, giving us advice, fixing things around the house, our cars, taking us fishing, to the ballpark and so many other things. Dads do these things out of love for their children and often times they don't want anything in return, or it is at least in my world!

On Father's Day dad's usually receive some kind of gift and if you were to ask dad what he really wants on his special day, he'd most likely say nothing because he doesn't need anything. Secretly though there's always something dad wants. It could be for his truck to be washed, waxed and detailed, someone else to do the yard work on occasion, a weather station, a scope for his gun for hunting, some new clothes possibly, but he'd never tell you that.

This Father's Day is going to be a bit different, like many other things are right now due to the pandemic, but if you're thinking about taking dad out to eat for lunch or dinner on Father's Day you might take advantage of these restaurant deals and say thanks to dad at the same time.
