Father’s Day is celebrated this Sunday It is a day to not only honor your father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in your life, whether as stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers or hip brothers. It is a time of burnt toast, breakfast in bed, family gatherings, and of course, that lovely new tie!
Father’s Day, contrary to popular misconception, was not established as a holiday in order to help greeting card manufacturers sell more cards. In fact, when Father’s Day was first proposed there were no Father’s Day cards.
Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington, suggested the idea of Father’s Day in 1909. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart. Smart, a Civil War veteran, was widowed when his wife died in childbirth with their sixth child. He was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state. It was after Dodd became an adult that she realized the strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent.
The first Father’s Day was observed on June 19,1910, in Spokane, Wash. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father’s Day. Finally in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential procla
mation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day.
Everyone celebrates Father’s Day a bit differently. Here are some ideas you might consider:
■ Flowers — Yes flowers! How many ties does dad need? If you know your dad has a special flower, then a bouquet would be a nice gesture. If you are unsure what type of flower, the elegance of a single rose will let him know you care.
■ Homemade card or picture — It doesn’t matter if you’relO, 30, or 50, a handmade card or note from the heart speaks more of your feelings than the store bought variety.
■ Home cooking — Give
mom the day off, too, and invite them both over for a good home cooked meal. Remember, today is not the day to test out that new recipe. Play it safe and stick to dad’s favorites.
■ Dinner — If you are not the home cooking type, then nothing is better than being treated to a delicious meal at a nice restaurant surrounded by the ones you love. It doesn’t have to be anywhere fancy, depending on your dad it could be the neighborhood diner or even the local barbecue place.
■ Sweets — Does your dad have a sweet tooth? A plate of homemade cookies or his favorite pie tastes even better when he knows it was baked with love.

If you go to Gruene Hall this weekend, be prepared to make a lot of noise. The Old 97’s will be in town to record a live album on Friday and Saturday.
Bobby Bare Jr. opens both shows. The Old 97’s got their official start in Dallas around 1993, playing in any club that had electricity. They released their first CD, "Hitchhike to Rhome’’ in 1994 and never looked back. In 1995, they signed with Bloodshot Records to release “Wreck Your Life.” After a successful showcase at Austin’s SXSW Music Conference in the spring of 1996, they signed with Elektra Records and recorded “Too Far Too Care,” which put them on the map nationwide. After a few years in the Elektra camp, they moved to New West Records to record their sixth album, “Drag It Up.” As guitarist and founding member Ken Bethea says
on their Web site, “I think we’ve settled in with what we do best on Drag It Up — solid writing and performances, with enough bells and whistles to make things interesting.
“It reminds me of our earlier recordings, we mix surf, bluegrass, country, rock, folk and some good old-fashioned psychedelic.” I’m sure the band will be performing songs from their entire career on tape, so this is an opportunity of a lifetime.
T\vo Tons of Steel will also be recording a live CD at Gruene Hall next week. They were originally schedule to tape three shows, June 21,22 and 28, but due to circumstances beyond their control, will only record on June 22 and 28.
On June 28, they will be filming the show for a live DVD release. They are celebrating IO years of IWO Ton Tuesdays so don’t miss one of these spe
cial live tapings. You’ll have a chance at witnessing a piece of Texas music history if you attend one of these shows. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of their latest CD, “Vegas,” their first release on Palo Duro Records.■ ■■
Saengerhalle welcomes Max Stalling on Saturday. Stalling is the rare artist that actually gave up a successful business career to pursue his first love, music.

Together they formed the Blind Neilo label and proceeded to make music. Today the label is also home to Houston March-man and Kevin Deal as well as Stalling and Manders. Widely recognized as one of the finest songwriters in Americana music, Stalling has three successful albums under his belt and a
huge fan base.
