Yeah, you can buy your dad a tie. Or a new fishing rod. But why not think outside the box this year? How about giving dad some Internet love?
You know he's the world's greatest, but until now spreading the word has been limited to how many people might see a coffee mug or a T-shirt.
But this is the 21st century. Imagine his surprise Father's Day morning (which is Sunday, by the way) when you hand him a laptop, smartphone or tablet and show him the article you've shared about him on Elmhurst Patch.
It's fun, free and easy to do too — just follow the instructions at this "Blog on Patch" link and you'll be ready to start. You can add photos and videos, if you like.
And you can use your blog any time you like afterward to write about the things happening in your neighborhood.
So, give it a whirl, Elmhurst. We want to hear your favorite dad stories. More importantly, he'd probably love to read one on his day, too.
