  4. A long phone call with my dad
  5. A handmade card from my son
  6. Some sort of Game of Thrones swag

  1. I love this! Both for selfish reasons and because I think a lot of these are very important. And of course GOT is important 😉

  2. It looks like a good list to me Scott. There are a number of things on this list too. Father’s day will be a possible double header for my son’s baseball team (of which I am the coach). If we win game 1, we get to game two which is the championship. The kids started off so poorly but never lost heart, It would be great to see them win and enjoy themselves every second.
