  • Father's day ideas...

    So I need some help deciding what to get my dad for Father's day. He doesn't really work on cars, so tools are out. He likes the Steelers and that's about it as far as sports go. He does watch some Nascar. He's always hard to buy for.

    Anyone have any neat suggestions or ideas?

    I know this may sound kinda gay...but a few years ago I got my Dad a massage session at one of the spas here in Hot Springs. He was a little reluctant at first but after it was over he said it made him feel like a new man and it was the best gift he had gotten in a long time. He has been back once a year ever since. Just an idea. You guys may not even have anything like that up there....

        Lol...I didnt see mine ever doing it either, it was my wife's idea. My Dad is kind of a backwoods rednecky type of guy with a big ol' beer belly and an uncuth mouth...the last guy you would think of seeing in a place like that....

          i do the same every year i mow his whole yard which is about 4 acres trim around all two hundred and some odd number trees clean the pool out and wash both of his cars. this gives him a saturday to do whatever he wants. Hes always busy so he appricates teh rest time. plus he usually fires up the grill while im working and cooks some steaks.

              Most of the ones at Hot Springs are run by the National Park Service and are on the up and up... so if you can find a "real" massage service instead of one of the shady ones, he might really like it.

              You could take him out for dinner!?!
              One of the neatest father's day presents I ever got was my daughter taking me out to eat. She felt "all grown up" doing it, and I certainly enjoyed it. We had a nice father/daughter chat over the meal.

                    i think i'm gonna get my ol' man an xbox 360 so he'll quit playing mine. and he keeps saying how much he wants one, but can't spend the money on it. but the a/c compressor just locked up and burnt up for the house so i may help out with that since it's been atleast 93 degrees this week.

                      OK
                      How about a real nice dinner somewhere?
                      Or a trip to somewhere close that he wouldn't normally go.
                      Like the Vet plant in Louisville or the football hall of fame. you know some daddy daughter time.

                            What about a Netflix subscription or something like that?

                              A group of us are taking our dads for a one day offroad trip Sunday. They've never went.
