    If you have a father, you probably owe him a tie or something next weekend. What are you getting your dad?

    I will probably throw-in on a string trimmer with my sister (rechargable).

    Did a bolt hold open mod on his Ruger 10/22. Might get him a speed loader for the sp101.

    Gonna try for a Mosin 91/30 so we can go shoot rifles together since he doesn't have a long rifle. Just a shotgun

    Crap! I forgot about Fathers day. I had disowned my Father because of how he lives his life. Now I found out he has liver cancer. They gave him 6 months. I had him over for dinner the night before last. Trying to help him through his last days. People here that know my history know this is dificult for me. But I am trying. I guess I have to go get a gift.

    Rick, you are already gining him one of the best gifts you can. I spent three years not talking to my mother over something that was minor in the end. I wish I had those three years back now that she is gone. I don't know your history, so I am making no assumptions, you have your reasons. Rest assured, you are doing the right thing. In the end, mom and I made our peace, and we were both better of for it.

    As to the OP, I have a $10 and a $20 siver certificate from my dad's birth year. His birthday is the 22nd, so I think I'll kill 2 birds with one stone.

    I never know what to get my Dad. He is pretty debilitated from a stroke several years ago. He has no hobbies and he can't get out and do the things he used to like to do. The best thing I can give him right now is my time. Probably a dinner and cook out on the grill is all that's in order to make my Dad happy.

    Okay, get him something that creates or complements work is in the same category of getting the wife a new vacuum for her birthday (Honey, the old vacuum is missing spots. Here's a new one.)

    Give him something that he could enjoy (maybe not a tie). How about a prepaid vacation? Reunion with some of his old buddies? Pay a lawn service for the weekend?

    He can barely walk. It is an effort to get up out of his chair and make it to the bathroom. He is 82 and has steadily declined since his stroke about 6 years ago.

    He has a lawn service.

    What he would love the most is spending a day with me, I'm sure.

    Let me tell you my grandpas favorite gift he's gotten in forever and you'll laugh. He was about 75 when he passed last year, but for the last year of his life he was confined to his recliner. He was an avid hunter and gun enthusiast so to help him pass the time we got him one of those duck hunting games that you just plug into the tv. I bet he played that thing four hours a day...lol. Was perfect because it's real easy to operate, only has one piece and is light enough for someone ravaged by diabetes to handle easily.

    My dad has never been a part of my life. But my grandpa, or pawpaw as i know him, will be getting a new Mini-30 from me. He always tells me about the one he had that got stolen and how he would love to have it back, just so happens I managed to save up the money just before fathers day. Now maybe, I can talk him into deer hunting with me and my little brother like he did when we were knee high to a grouse.

    Got my FIL a steering wheel knob for his new tractor. Liked it so much that I ordered one for myself.

    Got my old man a Pig Man t-shirt. We both love that show.
