I asked the question on our Facebook page, "what's the best thing you could get for Father's Day?" I got some great responses.

Since I can't physically be with my day on Father's Day, I know how much he will appreciate getting a card and a phone call from me. A gift would pretty much be meaningless. My dad is 85 - and you never know when it's going to be the last one. If this turns out to be his last Father's Day, I don't want to have the regret of not honoring him on his day - and letting him know how much he means to me. The card is in the mail and I will make the phone call on Sunday.

It's not that dads are necessarily wanting or demanding anything for Father's Day, but we wanted to hear what was in the hearts of Grand Junction dads.  What would be the best thing they could get? Some answers are funny, while others are serious, and some are sad.

Here is what they said:

* A round of golf, BBQ dinner with family and friends, and all the kids. Because what father doesn't spend father's day with his kids?

* I've been hoping forever o do the Richard Petty Experience, but until then, I love the homemade gift I get every year that my crafty wife and "girlz" make for me. I have received some very special unique gifts over the years.

* To be together with all the kids.

* A BBQ cooked by my sons while I just sit and relax.

* Jimi Hendrix tickets

* Weed

* Sleep

* Cancer Free

* Why do we need a gift. I get that 365 days a year.

When it comes to Father's Day, it truly is the thought that counts. Whether you are sending a card, making a phone call, or cooking up a BBQ dinner, don't let the day go by without telling dad how much he means to you and glad you are that he's your dad. That will be the best gift possible.
