|A long time ago in the early 90's with Chica and Yoko.|
We are very lucky to have a great Pop who loves us, feeds us and even cleans the litter boxes. He had cats even before us - White Kitty and Yellow Kitty. Not very imaginative names but he loved them just the same.
Thank you Pop for letting Mom take all of us in and even move with us to a new town. We appreciate all that you do for us. Mom is taking him on a Garden Tour of one of the historic neighborhoods in Asheville - he loves stuff like that. What are you doing for your Dad today?

Now for some fun trivia about Father's Day - did you know.....
Father's Day originated in America. The first Father's Day celebration (unofficial) was held in Spokane, Washington, on 19th June 1910
|Pop shares the office chair with Darby.|
The person credited for inventing the concept of Father's Day is Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd, of Spokane WA, whose father had raised his six children single-handedly.
It was in the year 1966 that President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation that resulted in the declaration of the third Sunday of June as Father's Day.
The declaration of 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day was signed as a law, and made permanent, by President Richard Nixon, in the year 1972.

In most of the countries around the world, like USA, UK, India, Canada, China, France, Greece, Japan and even Hong Kong, Father's Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June.
Roses are the official flower for Father's Day. A red rose is worn in the lapel if your father is living, a white rose if he is deceased.
P.S. Mom did a tribute to Grandpop (her Dad) on her other blog. Go here to read it.
Happy Father's Day to your Pop.
We had Mom go to the store and get stuff to make a yummy dinner for Daddy. Something called Tournedos Eva with filet mignon and langstinos and Bearnaise sauce!
