Re: The father's day gift idea thread

What I like about Fathers' Day, is the uncertainty of how many gifts that I may receive, this time round.

Re: The father's day gift idea thread

As a father I can with authority and without any shadow of a doubt say that the only present worth giving or receiving on Fathers day is beer...

It's an interesting concept. How much does a machine like this cost? I know a Big family would love this but like everything in life having pizza all the time will get boring like the rest of things.

Re: The father's day gift idea thread

Unfortunately this Father's day will be the first of many that I will not be able to celebrate with my wonderful Father who passed away from Cancer Feb 1st this year. I will raise a beer to his memory and thank him for being a truly consummate gentleman.

Re: The father's day gift idea thread

When is it here in CH? (and not in Ticino ). I thought I saw it recently on a holiday calendar list. I feel bad for my hubby on father's day last year as the kids did all sorts of stuff in school/playgroup for me, but nothing for him....so I should probably get something organized!

Sorry to hear this, but it certainly will be a good moment to have a drink and reflect on kind actions past!

Enjoy both the drink and the moment..
