Happy Father's Day and, as Just Be on South Elm Street reminds us, "Don't forget Dad." Today, The Urban Market will be set up in the afternoon and Elm Street will be busy with people strolling through the market wit theiir canine companions. The Urban Market would be a great place to purchase something for dad.... from vegetables and houseplants to linens and small trinkets. Just Be has some perfume that is tobacco scented. Now, that could be an interesting "dad" gift- that is, if you want your father smelling like tobacco, an interesting scent.
For those people lucky enough to have fathers still living, don't forget that one of the best gifts you can give is spending time with your father. If you can't be there in person, you can call. The third Sunday in June first became celebrated as Father's Day in 1910 in Spokane, WA. Sonora Smart Dodd wanted something to commemorate dads. If today is as beautiful as yesterday was in Greensboro, perhaps the gift of mowing the grass could be given. Regardless, "Don't forget Dad!"
