Smacksy Sunday Link: Father's Day

The dad in our house, Bob's sweet dad, my husband Jeff.

I first learned of this Groucho Marx song from my friend Jen who had a fine tradition of singing it to her dad every year on Father's Day. Since Jen's dad's death last year, the song has taken on a bittersweet quality. I love it still. (I love it even more when Jen sings it, but this Groucho version will do.)

To those of you who are a dad, and to those of you who are with your dad, and to those who are missing your dad today, Happy Father's Day.


  1. Happy Father's Day to your hubs hope you all have a fun day!

  2. Priceless. Happy Father's Day, Bob's Dad.

  3. Awwww....
    It was a better world with Groucho in it. Thanks for reminding us and happy Father's Day to the father of your darling boy. (And I have to tell you- that man of yours is pretty darling himself.)

  4. To all the wonderful men in our lives... Fathers here, Fathers gone and Fathers who might have been. xoxox

  5. Thanks for spending Father's day at Jack Knapp's house. While he was brushing his teeth tonight, he said "Bob's a nice boy".

  6. Loved this. So wonderful. As is the picture of Bob and his dad, the lovely and talented Jeff. xoxoxo

  7. Psst. Jeff.

    Don't let Lisa read this. That is the sexyist picture I've seen all day.
