    So true Bobby, some children these days though are conceived in test tubes, which must make choosing father or mother's day cards a tad difficult :) (Report) Reply

    Short and sweet Robert but very much to the point. I was reared by Mother
    and Father and feel very fortunate to have had both. I wrote three poems

    and Dear old Dad. Love it! (Report) Reply
