Ketchup With Us #20

Since Father’s Day is tomorrow, we’re ‘Ketching Up’ with dads this time around. I’m hoping that everyone has a good father figure in their lives somewhere. Even if he’s just a TV character. And we want to hear about him. The prompt is very loose. Interpret it however you like. I’m lucky. The choice for me was easy …

Dada, Daddy, Dad, Papa, PapaMan, PapaManSure (don’t ask) … he’s been called a lot of things over the years. And he answers to all of them. Because he’s always there, always willing and always able. “He’s the most patient human being on the planet,” says my mother.

Love you, Dad. Happy Father’s Day.

    Okay, so I’ve missed the your ketchup hop and two of Lance’s 100 word songs. That’s how much I need to ketchup! I’m jumping in late because I don’t want to miss it.

    That is a really sweet photo of you and your dad. Aw. I hope he had a really happy day yesterday and I have a feeling he did.

    Big congratulations on the show. That’s a wonderful experience to have, I’m sure – to share the stage with your child. It’s a great show too. I love the music.

  7. Get your dad in that costume!!
