Fathers Day Part One (with Orange)

I have already posted that we went out for Fathers Day breakfast on Thursday. We often celebrate days like this and birthdays with breakfast a day or three early. With Thursday's forecast looking better than Friday, Thursday was the day that we chose.


That was supposed to be it for early Fathers Day, with anything else related to the occasion to occur on the weekend with Shauna and the kids.

However, when I checked the mailbox, my new tee shirt had arrived.

You remember the orange shoes, right? Once I had them, we were looking for orange accessories. Sue found a tee from a First Nations site, and it happened to arrive just awhile before we were to depart for my second jab.

Since I had the shirt, Sue decided to give me my Fathers Day present then and there. Perhaps, you can see why.


That's right, it's a new cap, and it contains some orange and doesn't conflict with orange like my blue and red tartan caps. It's a very nice cap and even looks okay when I turn it backwards to take pictures.


I am very pleased with both items, and the cap is a quality one.

At some other time, I will post about the tee and the connection with First Nations and the story behind it, for it is of some significance.

For now though, it is just about Fathers Day, the orange shirt, and the cap.

I am not sure yet how and when I will see the kids, and there will likely be another Fathers Day post once I do. Meanwhile, Sue will have her second jab today, and that is worth celebrating too.

Second jabs are fast and furious now. Yay for the orange shirt and the great cap!

Great cap and shirt...though the message is a sad one...if it's a First Nation shirt saying that.

I love that shirt and the message. Happy Father's day!

A happy Fathers Day to you. You look very natty.

Nice hat and shirt. I depend on the daughters to give Dan Father's Day gifts. He does the same for me with Mother's Day in May.

A good gift.

Such a cool cap, and I too love the orange shirt. Happy Father's Day to you and yours! :-)

Now, that's very cool cap!

I must get one of those myself. I think that nice cap looks better backwards. It says more about your character - maybe a bit contrary?

A great hat and even better shirt. Happy Father's Day to you.

Based upon a comment above, I am not curious as to the story behind the shirt. Can't wait for that post.

We do the same for most holidays too and celebrate early but Father's Day generally isn't one of them. Mostly it is because my idea of celebrating is to go for a walk and perhaps get some ice cream with my kids.

That colorful shirt and cap make a nice ensemble, AC. Congrats to Sue on the second shot and hope your Father’s Day brings another family reunion.

Congratulations on the second jabs.

There is orange galore here now as the European Football Championships are taking place all over Europe. The Netherlands have been doing fine so far, so more and more orange is appearing by the day.
