About our theme. . .


For many of us, our fathers embody humor and happiness. So many fathers, it seems, tend to show their love by being funny and teasing in a loving way. In this edition we'll sing, think on, and explore the joys of these important themes in our lives.


A Special Poem for You. . .


Oh, my Papa, my papa,
You took me fishing for bluegill,
And made for me cardboard box automobiles
With paper plates for wheels.

Oh, my Papa, my papa,
You gave me Tom Sawyer to read,
Showed me how to hit a ball, 
And taught me to love wisdom.

My Papa,
You gave me everything you had, and more. . .
You did the best you could
to make my life everything you dreamed for me-

And that is a great gift!

-Michael D. Purvis C 2001
