Today We Celebrate

The Holiday Of The Soggy Breakfast In Bed - literally IN the bed as brought by loving off-spring hands trembling with their delicate burdens, eyes squinted in concentration.

Fathers Day is believed to date back to a memorial service for a group of miners in Mononga, West Virginia, who were all killed in a terrible below-ground accident in 1907.

Somehow this idea spread across the United States to Spokane, Washington, where Sonora Dodds in 1909 took it and ran with it as a follow-up to Mother's Day.

Get Mom to clean up the bed; she's had her holiday, ha ha
