Wednesday Wine and A Book Father's Day Edition

There are so many special men in the world known as dads. While they are heroes to their children they are sometimes romantic, sophisticated, well read, husbands too.
Step away from the mug and put that tie down! unless you are using it later. Here's a little extra special grown up 21+ treat for Father's day just for the two of you.

Silent Strong Dad by Karen Boyer
He never looks for praises
He's never one to boast
He just goes on quietly working
For those he loves the most
His dreams are seldom spoken
His wants are very few
And most of the time his worries
Will go unspoken too
He's there.... A firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold to
In times of stress and strife
A true friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad
One of our greatest blessings,
The man that we call Dad.

"God, please help me…another game of Candy Land…"
Quite a few dads spend time with their kids. However, many have no clue what their kids really need.

Enter author Jay Payleitner, veteran dad of five, who's also struggled with how to build up his children's lives. His 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad combines straightforward features with step-up-to-the-mark challenges men will appreciate:
•a full year's worth of focused, doable ideas―one per week, if desired
•uncomplicated ways to be an example, like "kiss your wife in the kitchen"
•tough, frank advice, like "throw away your porn"

And, refreshingly…
•NO exhaustive (and exhausting) lists of "things you should do"
•NO criticism of dads for being men and acting like men

Dads will feel respected and empowered, and gain confidence to initiate activities that build lifelong positives into their kids. Great gift or men's group resource!


        
After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, twenty-eight-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his seventy-three-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is "like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair," has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him:
"That woman was sexy. . . . Out of your league? Son, let women figure out why they won't screw you. Don't do it for them."
"Do people your age know how to comb their hair? It looks like two squirrels crawled on their heads and started fucking."
"The worst thing you can be is a liar. . . . Okay, fine, yes, the worst thing you can be is a Nazi, but then number two is liar. Nazi one, liar two."


 
This gift book for dad collects more than 100 inspiring quotes from the greatest coaches of all time. After all, dads do what the best coaches do: they motivate, mentor, discipline, and love. Author and parenting expert Tom Limbert takes wisdom from John Madden, Vince Lombardi, Tommy Lasorda, Phil Jackson, and many more, and applies it to fatherhood. With a foreword by Steve Young and photos of famous coaches in action, dads will find a wealth of inspiration in these pages.
