Father’s Day is tomorrow, and for some reason, this song always makes me think of my dad. It’s fun and lighthearted, but it has a message, just like my old man.
Maybe it’s just the time frame during which this song was popular that makes me remember sitting on my dad’s lap watching the Tigers play (and in those days, they played well!). Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Bob Seger is a Michigan institution. Maybe it’s just one of those subconscious connections that I’ll never fully understand, but makes me happy nonetheless.
I only wish that I could celebrate my husband this Father’s Day; with some doing however, I have a good feeling that next year will be a much bigger cause for celebration for our little family.
Wherever you are, however you celebrate, and whatever your relationship with your own father or kids, I hope you have a splendid Father’s Day weekend.
