Happy Father's Day 🧔🏻‍♂️ 19 June



"My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me." Jim Valvano "When it comes to Father's Day, I will remember my dad for both being there to nurture me and also for the times he gave me on my own to cultivate my own interests and to nurture my own spirit." Jennifer Grant



INTRODUCTION



As it is 'Father's Day' on 20th June, we started by sharing a picture of our fathers and saying a little about them. Some members who were fathers brought pictures of their children. It was a lovely way to start the session.



(It's good to prepare and know family names etc to fill in the gaps if anyone struggles with naming their children.)

(It is also important to know a little about member's life stories, their loves and losses, before engaging in conversations like this.)


We asked what members thought of 'Father's Day' and 'Mother's Day'? Are both days a nice recognition or a gift shop rip off?



We asked members to list the best 'Father's Day' gifts? Our list included:

- Bottle of whisky - Pack of cigars - Aftershave - Gift token - Meal out - Chocolates

We then asked what the worst gifts might be?

- Socks - Pants - Slippers - Tie - Gardening tools - Shaving equipment



We moved on to think about things that dad's enjoy - favoured hobbies and interests (not exclusively male, of course!)

- Watching football - Going to a rugby match - Spending a day at the cricket ground - Watching or participating in other sports - Spending time in the garden or allotment - Fishing - Twitching (birdwatching) - Stamp or coin collecting - Walking the dog - Going down the pub or club.





IDIOMS


Next we asked members to complete the following phrases (by way of a shout out) ...


Before you were a twinkle in your father's EYE Father of the BRIDE A bit of how's your FATHER Like father, like SON Experience is the father of WISDOM Old enough to be your FATHER Sugar DADDY Go on my SON Son of a GUN Who's your DADDY Daddy long LEGS Daddy's GIRL Pop goes the WEASEL

Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful? Isn't she precious? Less than one minute old I never thought through love we'd be Making one as lovely as she But isn't she lovely made from love?

Isn't she pretty? Truly the angel's best Boy, I'm so happy We have been Heaven-blessed I can't believe what God has done Through us, He's given life to one But isn't she lovely made from love?

Isn't she lovely? Life and love are the same Life is Aisha The meaning of her name Londie, it could have not been done Without you who conceived the one That's so very lovely made from love Hey!



You could end the quiz with a discussion about what it's like to be a Dad or Grandad?


(Take care, as some father's may have lost children and some may not have been lucky enough to have a child!)



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XC5fqzKxau8


I've been sitting here all day thinking Same old thing ten years away thinking Now my days are gone, memories linger on Thoughts of when I was boy

Pennyfarthings on the street riding Motorcars were funny things, frightning Bow and hoops and spinning tops Annie gretzel's lollipops Comic cuts, all different things

Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad, grandad

Aeroplanes tied up with string flying Telephones and talking things sighing A radio and phonograph, Charlie Chaplin made us laugh Silently falling about

Familiar things I keep around, near me Memories of my younger days, clearly Now it's in my mind Everyday I find, thoughts of when I was boy

Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad, grandad

Grandad, grandad

Grandad, grandad



PRACTICAL ACTIVITY


We decided to have a 'Beautifying Session', with hairdressing and nail care provided.

For the male members of the group, we asked who wanted their hair combed and slicked back with Brylcreem. We passed around some old men's aftershaves to smell and members put on their preferred choice. We had 'Old Spice', 'Denim', 'Blue Stratos', 'Brut' and others on hand.

For female members we had some make up, nail varnish and emery boards. As well as perfumes such as 'Sunflowers', 'Anais Anais', 'Lavender Water' and 'Lily Of The Valley'.

We had some incidental relaxation music playing in the background to help with the ambience.
