Feliz lunes.!! Happy Monday.!! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend with their special father whether it was your dad, grandpa, spouse, or significant other.!! My dad is still not home, so I visited him at the rehab hospital. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to eat our favorite weekend lunch of chicken wings and pizza, but spending time with him was still special. My dad still can’t talk full sentences as his throat is healing from the respirator. He has managed to say my name and a few other words, but that’s it. I miss talking to him 😦

Every year on Father’s Day when I wish him “Happy Father’s Day”. He always says, “Thank YOU for making me a father.!” I’m the oldest 🙂 I definitely missed him saying that to me this year. Tomorrow is also my birthday and I’m not sure he will be able to wish me happy birthday either. But I remind myself, he is still around and he is getting stronger and better every day.! And next year this time, I will get to hear his voice saying my favorite words 🙂

Corona is taking a break this week, so that we can honor my dad with a Canadian Club commercial. My dad was a huge rebel, macho man, and a breaker of the rules, so this commercial seems very timely. I’m sure if he was around during Prohibition, he would have been smuggling whiskey himself.! He was known to make moonshine back in the day.! I tried it once and almost died.!! jajaja… I hope everyone enjoys their week. See you in a few days for more of Mexico.! Until then, enjoy.! Y salud.!!

Feliz Día del Padre.!! Happy Father’s Day.!! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend celebrating with their dad.!! I know I did 🙂 As always where my dad is concerned, meat was part of the celebration.!! When I was younger, I used to think my dad was the most interesting man in the world. Then, of course, I became a teenager and believed him to be the killjoy for all the fun I wanted in life. lol.. But as I have grown up, I have gone back to my initial thinking. I believe my father is one of the most interesting men in the world. He has definitely led a colorful and eventful life.!

Recently, Canadian Club ran a litany of ads talking about “your dad”. The ads featured awesome blurbs about your dad such as “Your dad was not a metrosexual”, “Your dad never tweezed anything”, and “Your dad has stories you’ll never hear.” Basically, the ads talked about how your dad was probably more cool and interesting than you know. Funny enough, my dad drinks Canadian Club.!! And I would swear the ad lines were modeled on his life.!!

My father is a macho man. He was smoking tabacco by the time he was thirteen. In his early twenties, he walked three days to get to Italy so he could escape communist Yugoslavia. When I was little, I once saw him break a pool cue in half with his bare hands. You would think I would have grown up afraid of my dad, but quite the contrary happened. His strength made me feel protected and safe.

And in turn, he made me a strong woman. So since this weekend is Father’s Day weekend, I thought I would send a huge shout-out to all the fathers. Whether you are having a barbeque with your dad, or lunch or dinner – enjoy the weekend..!! The Tecate Machos commercial I have selected celebrates the macho man. But note at the end of the commerical, when the macho man’s friend asks him does your old lady know that you are out. The macho man replies “yes” and that answer makes him more of a macho man than all the previous incidences that occurred. jaja.. Enjoy..y Salud..!!
