Hey Dad, it's Friday!

This post is dedicated to L'Homme in honour of Father's Day which Australians celebrate on Sunday.

The Petits have one heck of a role model when it comes to how to be a man, how to be a loving citizen, how to face every challenge head on with humour, grace and bare-knuckled tenacity. He doesn't always get it right but isn't too proud to admit his wrongs. He can't build a thing to save himself, knows nothing about mechanical matters and tidiness or organisation are not high on his list of priorities.

But he cooks like a pro, throws himself into parenting and housework, loves participating in sports, runs a business with integrity and he dances like....ummm, well, he dances. He has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He is a great storyteller, loves a joke, wine, fine dining or hanging at the local cafe. He could mix it with the pauper or the Queen - possessing that rare combination of street smarts and academic know-how. He has created a great community of friends who are as loyal as any people could be.

This is to all the good guys out there - and especially to our good guy, Stephan T.
The man's a champion and that's all there is to it.
