It's Bobber's Day!

It's our own special version of Father's Day--named in honor of a terrific stepdad.

With this year's Father's Day approaching, it's occurred to me that this country is missing a holiday. Stepfather's Day.



If anyone deserves a special day, it's these brave souls who've had to carve out a place for themselves in ready-made families with the care and caution of a neurosurgeon. That's why we have a Bobber's Day in our family. It's our own version of Stepfather's Day, named after Bob the stepfather. Here's why we celebrate it.

 


The Bobber has just moved in.



"If you do anything to hurt my mother, I could put you in the hospital, you know," says the college boy, who is far bigger than the stepfather.



"I'll keep that in mind," says the Bobber.

  • "You're not going to start telling me what do," says the junior high school boy. "You aren't my father."



    "I'll keep that in mind," says the Bobber.




    The college boy is on the phone. His car has broken down 45 miles from home.



    "I'll be right there," says the Bobber.




    The vice principal is on the phone. The junior high school boy has been in a fight.



    "I'll be right there," says the Bobber.
