Happy Father’s Day
From the staff of Missing Remote, we want to wish all the fathers out
there a fun and relaxing day. For once, hopefully the family won’t get
in the way of your TV watching! Well, we can dream, can’t we? So,
don’t forget to wish your father well today, regardless of where he is.
If you’re lucky enough to still have him with you, be especially
thankful and let him know. This year is actually quite special, too,
because it’s the centennial of Father’s Day itself.
