Color me weird...

... but I find this recent headline in The Telegraph to be particularly sad.. Especially on Christmas Eve!

"A 'dad' is the tenth most popular Christmas list request for children'

A 'dad' is tenth most popular Christmas list request for children with youngsters happy to forgo the latest iPad, toy or new pet, a survey has found. 

When it comes to Christmas, it might be safe to assume children will ask Santa for an extensive list of toys, games and treats.
But a survey of their typical lists for Father Christmas has shown many have more serious concerns, requesting "a dad" instead.

 As a Grandson, a son, a dad, a granddad, and a great grandad... I find this story particularly sad -- and a sign of the times......

I'll not say more..... go here for the rest of the story....

Merry Christmas to all of you Dads, and especially to all of you without Dads.... every tenth house? Yee Gads.....!
