Mom and DadHappy Father’s Day to all you dads out there.  My mom and dad passed away in 1993 only months apart, and I miss them dearly. I would be remiss if I didn’t share a story about my dad on Father’s Day.

As you can see in their photo, my dad was a hat man. Since my mother was a dear saint and did not possess one snarky bone in her body, she searched for hats that dad could wear while mowing the lawn or harvesting our massive garden of vegetables. (I miss those tomatoes!)  Being a ruthless bargain hunter, she found a deal on half a dozen ball caps. Our excitement was palpable as dad opened his Father’s Day box o’ hats.

He tried one on, and my sister and I rolled on the floor. On the front of every hat was a screen printed bunny in a variety of colors. Once the guffaws stopped and tears of hysterics were cleaned away, we had to break it to mom that the beloved “rabbits” were actually playboy bunny logos.

I want you to know that my dad, a devout educator, wore every one of those hats with love and pride. Dad, I miss you.

Raven - Caveman

Caveman, by Jo RavenMatthew Hansen is the kind of handsome that has grown women whispering behind their hands and giggling like schoolgirls.
Dark, tall and mysterious, he’s a newcomer to our little town. He’s a gritty, grease-covered mechanic, and a single daddy.
Sweet, right? Plus he’s looking for a nanny – and I am desperately looking for a job.
Sounds like the perfect deal.
Only he’s a jerk. An uncivilized, hulking brute. Zero manners. Zero interest in making me feel welcome in his home. Downright rude.
But oh so sexy. And I need the job. I can do this. One thing is for sure: I can’t fall for the Caveman. No matter how sexy he is. How mysterious. How tortured. That’s the only rule – and one I’m about to break.
