Dear Family – a Letter from Dad

Bill Cosby had it right. Yes, many of us dads are the “fun ones,” the “jokesters,” and the “dress up dolls.” There are fathers all over the world “who get things they can’t use and . . . don’t want.” With Father’s Day coming up I wanted to offer some suggestions for things that Dad actually wants:

WantDeck Box. Give dad a Lifetime Deck Box so he has somewhere to quickly put away all of the kid’s toys left on the lawn. Keep them safe so he doesn't hit them with the lawn mower anymore. So, really . . . it’s a gift that keeps giving. 
Don’t Want – Another light-up, pink, paisley, or superhero tie. It’s just another burp rag for the baby to spit up on.

Want – New shed to store all the yard tools in. You know you all keep telling us to put the tools away.
Don’t Want – “Cute” stuffed animal driver cover to hang on his golf bag. In case you haven’t forgotten, we’re not perpetual 6-year-olds. We’re men! *grunt*

WantHorizontal shed to store the kid’s bikes in – and get them out of the garage. The more organization, the better, right?
Don’t Want – One of those visors with fake hair attached to it. Bald is beautiful.

WantKayak or paddleboard for taking to the lake. Everybody wins!
Don’t Want – Nose hair trimmer. Well, not unless we ask for it. We’re not complete animals. Besides, it’s not nose hair, it’s part of my mustache and mustaches are manly.

WantPicnic table for serving his masterfully cooked BBQ. We’ll gladly give all you moms a night off from cooking.
Don’t Want – Car Wax. Believe me, we have plenty.

WantBasketball hoop. Again . . . it’s for the kids . . . really.
Don’t Want – Coffee mug. We appreciate the “World’s Greatest Dad” compliment, but we're still bying for the World's Greatest NBA player title.

Take a look at the clock. It's 4:00 and the clubs are still open! Head over to pick up one of our great Lifetime products for Dad this year, and let him know just how much you love him.

Memory of a Lifetime
The first time that I played basketball, or at least tried to, it was on a piece of plywood bolted above a neighbor's garage back in the mid 80's. I say "tried", because the ball never came remotely close to the rim - although it did hit the family station wagon multiple times. That's what makes my first encounter with Lifetime so memorable. It was in my best friend's driveway in the spring of 1990 - I was 12. I helped him unpack the shiny white poles for his new basketball hoop, while he picked an ideal spot for it in the corner of his driveway. With shovel and tools in hand, we began to install what would turn out to be the hub of recreation for us and several friends over the next half decade. While I didn't know then who Lifetime was as a company, I quickly became familiar with the advantage of their product. After the ...
Celebrating Earth Day
Earth Day is one of those things Ilearned about in elementary school. I remember running home to tell my mom that each drop of water we waste actually becomes a gallon of wasted water for the earth!Like my mom reacted at the time, I now don't think that's true. Myfirst grade brainmust have exaggerated the concept.For this year'sEarth Day, I decided to volunteer at the local nature center's event, helping with a craft table for children making magazinebead necklaces. Lots of fun!Volunteers before me had made thousands of beads and even sorted them by color. Looking around, I spotted a couple Lifetime tables. I asked one of the vendors a little about her booth then let her know I work for the company who made her table. She immediatley beamed "I love this table!"and went on to say that she bought it for acertain purpouse but us...
