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.

Hang on! Let's Go 4-Wheeling with Our Yard Cart!
Good friends help friends in need. We had friends who needed to spread 13 yards of dirt on their lawn, so we loaned them our Lifetime Yard Cart to help make their work easier. What? Did you think I was going to say I offered to actually help spread the dirt? Hey, I said we were good friends, not great friends! (Just kidding. Marc Jenna, we love you guys!) Truth be told, the Lifetime Yard Cart was practically screaming for Marc and Jenna to borrow it. Why? Because Marc and Jenna live on an acre lot AND they own a 4-wheeler that can pull the Yard Cart in the trailer mode. This is the kind of dream job the Lifetime Yard Cart was built for. The measly six yards of compost that we spread on our yard by pushing the Yard Cart like a wheelbarrow was mere childs play compared the massive job that Marc and Jenna were going to tackle....

The perfect Mother's Day gift: Kayak Adventures!
Last year I wanted to come up with something original for a Mothers Day gift. I didnt want to go with the traditional flowers, birdhouses, or candy. Showing her how much she means to me and how much I appreciate everything she does is really important. I racked my brain for days trying to come up with something creative, something different and something that could be enjoyed for more than just one day a year. What would surprise her? What could I do that she wouldnt expect? Then it hit me! A kayak!! When Mothers Day arrived she was never more excited! Instantly she began listing off all the places she could go and how jealous all her friends would be. I think the thing she liked the most was that now we could go out kayaking together. Not only did this give her a new activity, but it gave her a fun way to hang out with her ...
