Father’s Day 2024

Happy father’s day to all the dads, grandads, uncles, brothers, husbands, and certainly a few moms who stood in for fathers.

I miss my dad, he’s been gone for over 2 years now. I’m going through a rough patch personally and I miss going to him for advice. I know that he would try to get me to see all sides of every issue and ultimately help me choose the side that I know is right in my heart already.

I’d like to say that I’m still a bit mad at him for not preparing me for every single thing I’d come up against. But that’s just not fair is it?


Today we went to see my husband’s family’s graves at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis. We saw his dad’s, and two grandpas and two grandma’s graves. It’s quite a sight to see all those white headstones, so many areas, and so many new areas too. It’s always growing, being filled with men and women, a never-ending cycle.

Hug your dads if you got’em, folks. -krisgo

  1. Krisgo: I am still sorry for your loss; your dad was a wonderful person.

    I can only imagine how hard it is around Father’s Day and his birthday for you.

    Happy Father’s day to all the dads out there.

  2. Kris,
    It’s a rare individual who touched as many lives as your father did. He rescued me from certain financial ruin and helped save Lucas’ life. I’ll never forget what he, and so many other people he urged, did. When he offered to allow me to write here, I could not have been happier. Jonco spread happiness across the world, and he will always live on in our hearts and laughter.

    But he did, didn’t he? You said yourself exactly what he would do and what he would have you do. You’re prepared.
    I suspect you miss him more that you can explain because he was as we all know, such a great guy, and must have been a fantastic Dad.

  4. Thanks guys – I often think to myself WWJD (What would Jonco Do) for things of personal, job-related, money, people interactions, etc.
    It’s the computer problems mom and I have from time to time, that I wish I knew more about – that make me most angry (I’m not really angry – I just say that). I really wish he would’ve sat me down and said, someday I’m going to have you take over B&P, here is what you need to know, and if X situation comes up with WordPress or whatever, here’s who to ask for help. As well as anything having to do with Excel that I always turned to him.

  5. Seems to me there must be some computer/internet nerds in the vast B&P family. You might ask if anyone would be willing to answer questions on a one to one basis via phone, email, chat. whatever, when you’re vexed.
    Can’t hurt… unless you’re afraid people will find out you’re making $4 million a month off this site. Bwahahahahaha!

    No, I don’t have the slightest worry someone will take that seriously.

    • $4 mil a month would be somethin’ wouldn’t it?! Truth is, we’re getting close to just breaking even. Several months ago, I did reach out to a WordPress thread on Reddit and got a lot of advice. I also hired a tech co. to fix some things for me. But yeah, if I have further issues I will certainly reach out again. I appreciate that you guys visit every day, and click on ads when you can. 😉
