Happy Father's Day!

Make way for the neckties and, the gardening, and/or, power tools.

It's Father's Day, which, as you know, is a celebration inaugurated in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and male parenting, and to honour and commemorate fathers and forefathers. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving, and special dinners to fathers and family-oriented activities. In 2008, it will be celebrated on June 15 in most countries.

The Garlic is chipping in with this classic tune, Horace Silver's 'Song for my Father'

(There's no video, to speak of, however, we wanted to go with the original).

And for a slightly different take ...

Chuchito Valdes & Friends - "Song for my Father"

Happy Father's Day!
