According to the US Census Bureau there are 8,111 clothing stores across the US, many of which will sell you a very nice tie for Father’s Day.
There are 16,010 Hardware Store which sell hammers, screwdrivers and power tools that Dad may enjoy.
Dad might enjoy a fishing rod or new golf clubs from one of the 22,116 sporting goods outlets throughout the country. Last year 81.5 million people enjoyed a barbeque last year, and it is a fair guess that many of them were held on Father’s Day.
With all of these numbers reeling through your head, it might be a good time to pour a cup of hot chocolate for you and Dad, and then enjoy some great Father’s Day Radio Programming from Old Time Radio.

Henry certainly didn’t mean for the Principal to think that Father is on his deathbed and that Mother is working to provide for the family.
