    Why is Father's Day late this year? Anybody know?
    Come the first week in June I mailed off a Father's day card to my Dad like always, only to look at the calender a few days later and discover it's not until next weekend.
    We were discussing it at a party yesterday, but nobody knew why. I realize that today is Flag Day. Perhaps the Powers-That-Be didn't want two holidays on the same day? [​IMG]
