The column that says happy Father’s Day to wherever you may be, at home grillin’ or at the shore chillin’ and with your children God willin’, and a half-dozen of us spent a lot of it in line at Wendy’s when somebody had the gall to order 20 — count ’em — 20 sandwiches through the drive-thru.

Sudden thought — Phillies could run commercials between Joaquin Benoit’s pitches. Four hours to play nine innings on a sweltering day? Ridiculous!
Umpires need to yell more “Play ball!”
Or as local ump Dave Cossaboon used to say between innings, “Only the postman walks!”
International basketball coach Bob Hutchings leaves for Barcelona on Tuesday.

“Does anyone have a contact for someone at Philly Paws? They had contacted us about two weeks ago interested in pulling kittens (and we desperately need the help they offered), but haven’t responded to any of my emails since! Thanks!”

We have to repeat this …
“Happy Father’s Day to the best Dad and husband. You have held us together in a time we could have easily fallen apart. You have been cook, parent, house cleaner, nurse — you name it — all while still trying to work. You are such a role model for our boys — what it truly means to love and care for a woman no matter what comes your way. No matter what, you make time to spend with the boys to teach them things and be involved in their lives. Thank you isn’t enough.”

FATHER OF THE YEAR
How can Al Solanik put all those places where he eats on Facebook and not gain an ounce and we look at a McDonald’s sign and gain weight?
Food cooked by firemen is the key. You already know how good their twice-a-year breakfasts are.
Rent a canoe at Piney Point.
Who knew …
“Many thanks to the city for not mowing down the wildflowers and native plants that grow along the raceway.
“Environmentally, they protect the raceway from erosion and filter goose poop. the flowers, are pretty and have attracted butterflies and bees!”

There are more cases than advocates, but the gap is narrowing.
