EARTH-FRIENDLY FATHER'S DAY

DON'T FORGET JUNE 21ST IS FATHER'S DAY You have about one week to think. . .

So you wanna get Dad something special? Not another tie he'll stuff in the back of his drawer until spring cleaning in 2012. This year give him something he'll really enjoy and go green at the same time.

Take Dad out for an afternoon of golf on the greens. And, if you can't afford 18 holes on a course, what about the putt-putt variety . . . ?

Father's Day is really about showing Dad you care and what better way to show you care than by spending time with people you love?

And, if you don't like golf, what about buying Dad something he's sure to use - like a pair of socks - or how about three? These socks are sustainable and made from bamboo. Check them out here. For about $10.00 you can get Dad a renewable-source sock.

And, if that's too much money, what about making a meal for the good-ole guy? You can cook an old fashioned BBQ of chicken, or hotdogs and hamburgers and show him you love him by filling his belly and letting him rest his feet.

Remember everyone has to eat and this way, you'll be killing two birds with one stone, so it might as well be a chicken. If you cook a wonderful meal - that's a gift. And the second part of that gift is that Dad doesn't have to stand over a hot grill on his special day.

These are just a few ideas of how to celebrate on the 21st with your Dad. If you have other ideas, please post them in the comments section.

My dad used to own several pairs of those dark fuzzy socks that men wore to church or work. When he'd come home, he used to sit in his recliner and rub his feet together while he thought his thougts. I remember my mom used to get so mad at the pile of pilings on the carpet from those socks! I hadn't thought of that in years until I read your post on socks! You gave me a good chuckle, Miss Kim.

When I first heard of bamboo clothing, etc. I couldn't believe it...but we have some bamboo sheets and we love them...

I think bamboo socks sound great...might have to get us a matching pair...grin...
