Happy Father's Day

Recommended Posts

I just googled father's day. There are many different dates around the world but the third Sunday in June is the most common date.

Therefore I wish a happy Father's Day for fathers in more than 100 countries.

And here is a proud Marcus Aurelius and his children.

Father Day? Today is happy Sahara Day here. We now have 36 degrees in the shade. A wind like a hot hairdryer blowing in your face. I'm sitting at home on a Sunday. The flat is dark. You can't go out without being grilled. In the middle of summer and I have to spend Sunday in front of the PC in the "cool" room.

But on the subject. I'd love to. Septimius Severus... the two children should (could) apparently represent Caracalla and Geta on the back.

Nice idea for a thread, Kali ... oh, and great Dad-coins, gang

 

Ummm, I don't have any coins from my dear ol' departed father ... but I do have his D.F.C. Air Force medal and his stamp collection (sure, they may not be "ancient", but they are pretty cool and very precious to this guy!)

=> Happy Father's Day

Happy fathers Day to you dads and grandpops. Be grateful for your kids. Mine has a hair up her butt for the past couple years and I won't get a call again this year. I don't let it ruin all 365 days but it does irk me a bit on Fathers Day.

It's her choice. I'm too old to waste my time on feeling bad and dwelling on what things should be like. I'm going out to grill a couple filet mignon on the bar B. It's a beautiful day.

Alas I never met my father as apparently he disappeared when I was 3 months old☹️....

Here's to you dad wherever you are?

Konrad II, Salian emperor, with Heinrich III as 'King of the Romans' /heir designate, 1028-1039. Denar of Speyer.  ...With the usual convergence of ambitious engraving and atrocious strikes, evoking the later pennies of Henry I of England (who married a Salian, known as the Empress Maud).

Spent last night at a baseball game with FFIVN and his sister. Left Mrs. Frog home with the 2 youngest tadpoles. Today, we went on a pirate scavenger hunt with everyone.

I don't have any coins with 3 boys and a girl so here is just a father and son:
