Thinking of Dad this Father's Day (Plus, a Give-Away)

So, rather than create a new story, I'm going to share some of the spark some good memories of you and your and dad. And, to dads everywhere, thanks, and Happy Father's Day.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-FT8WKrX4r7k/T84NMGJAQSI/AAAAAAAAH0U/-tQinZ-FAOY/s1600/remskcover300dpi+(1).jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-FT8WKrX4r7k/T84NMGJAQSI/AAAAAAAAH0U/-tQinZ-FAOY/s1600/remskcover300dpi+(1).jpg" //a/divdiv style="text-align: center;"bbr //b/divdiv style="text-align: center;"bThere's a give-away too! /b/divbr /In the comment section below, please share a fond memory of your dad.
