    Quite a few dads on this forum.... we are truly blessed. Here is a pic of me hiking with my 2 sons last year at Big Bend.

    So Happy Father's Day to all the dads! It is wonderful being a father.

    My Dad was a guitar player, too. (Also played banjo.) Here he is on guitar, with his twin brother on mandolin.

    I don't measure up to my Dad, but I am a father of three. To borrow a line from Guy Clark, "They can't tell if I'm a blessing or a curse."

    Father's Day can be a real mixed bag at times, but if I hadn't become a father, I could never have been a grandfather......and THAT'S what's special for me. ;)

    My dad, in 1960. To the right of Frost.

    I learnt to play on his Kay flattop. Thanks, dad.

    My dad knew the first line to thousands of songs, it seemed like, and he'd belt 'em out from time to time, but I don't remember ever hearing him finish a verse. I wish I could give him a Fathers' Day call.

    9D7613E9-C193-4B90-A5E7-CF28FC02ECD3.jpeg My Dad taught me to be loyal to my 1st and 2nd wives. Hard work, taking time for my children and stepson.
    He enabled me to be a great grand father.
    Thanks Daddyo!

    I relate. Not so much to the millennia of first lines, Dad was a good guitar player but always more about the song, so he had a bunch of 'em (though not thousands) memorized all the way through. But I relate to not being able to call him. He died, too young, of lymphoma, in October of 1989. DANG! Purt near 30 years! :eek::(

    Happy Father’s Day all. I don’t really like to show faces on the internet without permission so here’s my dad with my two kids last Easter:

    Spending the day with my kiddos, and looking forward to taking them up to see their Grandpa in 2 weeks.
