What Does Father's Day Mean to You?

From Discount Motor City, the best of the used car dealerships, Surrey, BC.
When I look back on my childhood, it was so normal for a kid that lived in a small town. No locked doors, playing outside and in the forest till dark, mom calling us all for dinner with a large cow bell, and spending each Saturday fishing with my dad.
There are all sorts of memories about childhood, but the most memorable are those fishing trips with muy dad, especially the day I caught a 36-pounder. I can still remember the battle from the old wooden boat dad built with his own hands. Green, with a small cabin and an old Evinrude motor. No spare like most boats have today and we did not even think about what would happen if we lost the motor. Float around until someone found us.
Dad worked hard to support us and he built us a home. I think the hardest part for him was laying the hardwood floor. None of that click together stuff in those days. Just pounding spiral nail by spiral nail and dust – the dust hung like a thick fog when the sanding was done with a beat up green electric sander. The end result was spectacular. The most beautiful hardwood floor that one could imagine.
What does Father’s Day mean to me?
It means all the great memories I have of my father and our family. Dad always being there and mom as solid as a rock. No matter what happened, we made it through and right to the end, my dad stayed strong and I still love him to bits.
From all of us at Discount Motor City, be best of the used car dealerships Surrey, this is a special day to thank all our dad’s, no matter where you are, who you are, or what you do. All Dad’s in mind and spirit are special, and we include them all.
