Even though the special day has passed, I'd be remiss in not mentioning Father's Day in the context of the ol' home town. Valley Fair is always a great source of information and amusement with their gift suggestions. Nowadays, the free cigar given to all fathers at the Golden Griddle would be extremely politically incorrect today, but then, times change. For all we know, at the turn of the 20th century, merchants might have been giving away complimentary buggy whips and plugs of chewing tobacco, that is, if Father's Day had been a thing at that time.
