Father’s Day, a Ball Game, And a Great American Giveaway

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, grandfathers, and those who fill the role of a fatherly figure. Thank you for your time, patience, and commitment to our future generations. Thank you for that special understanding when something isn’t going so well in a child’s life, no matter what their age, to give a little extra love. That fatherly love has no expiration date. Thank you for that special praise and encouragement when things are going well. Hopefully, it will help the one you love so much reach the next level of success or continue on the path toward their dream.

Thank you for understanding that a father’s time is needed for a lifetime. Even when that child has grown to the age, they might not think they need your time or advice. The key to being a good dad is finding a little different approach and maybe waiting for them to ask instead of just treating them as that child you always will see them as.

This is always tough for me as I see Jimmy and Hunter as those little boys I took everywhere and tried to teach everything. I’ve learned that a key as they get older is to let them test their wings and fly on their own. By doing so, you make them more independent and more understanding of a new role or challenge in their life. This better prepares them for life’s challenges when you can’t be there or on the other end of the phone for them.

This also helps get them ready for the thing no parent wants to think about when they reach the point in their life when they may have to rely on that love and support they have given their child. We’re all going to grow older even though we don’t have to act our age.

I should probably mention that it is often better to act your age. However, sometimes, I embarrass Hunter and Jimmy with my juvenile behavior or comments. Then I make it worse by laughing, thinking it’s funny. I better stop there. I’m sure there are many dads out there smiling, as you know exactly what I’m talking about.

My staff and I would like to help you celebrate that fatherly figure in your life with a trip to Historic Bowman Field and some great ballpark refreshments. Simply be one of the first four people to call or text me at 570-337-0755 on Thursday, June 13th, and win four tickets and Cutters’ Cash for all four to enjoy dinner at Journey Bank Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field. Just identify yourself as a Father’s Day Cutters giveaway.

Please remember it’s Thursday to give everyone an opportunity to win.

I’ll finish things up this week with our Webb Weekly Great American Cook Out Summer Giveaway; all the information can be found directly below. Editor Steph extended the registration date one week to June 20th. I’m sure many of you are clapping.

A Happy Father’s Day to Mikey Rupert and old Chet Ruth. And thank you for each providing a $50 gift card for the great products at Rupert’s Specialty Meats and the ice-cold beverages at Frosty Beverage.

A tip of my Webb Weekly cap with the American Flag on the side to Paul Early and his excellent staff at Elery Nau Hardware for providing the 4-burner Charbroil Grill and a full tank of gas to get it fired up. Good luck to all that enter. And yes, the grill is assembled.

Let’s all be safe out there and enjoy the Father’s Day weekend.

God Bless America.
