To all the fathers who come here to this blog!
May you be blessed in every way!

Today, I'm thinking of my dad, the late Tony Soliano who filled my childhood with wonderful memories.

The are so many, but the one that stands out now would be this episode.

My siblings and I were young teens, planning to go for our first ever party. We were so excited about it, until my mom said we would have to be home by 10 pm. When we protested, she promptly sent us off to speak with dad. He took one look at our faces and said "Go enjoy yourselves, remember your surname and just make sure you come back before the sun rises in the morning!".

Until today, I'll never forget that moment!

Tony Soliano

When I was younger, I remember being enthralled by the wonderful music created by your dad and his band...

You must have had a wonderful childhood with your siblings..Am wondering if you are the only daughter?

Am also amazed by that episode you shared in this post. I am sure with the freedom he gave you, all of you learnt the meaning of responsibility and this legacy has been passed on to your son.

What a blessing!

Take care and thanks for sharing...

MWS: Thanks for remembering my dad! There are 3 of us girls who gave him a headache! hahaha

My brother is the youngest of us four children. We had a really unorthodox upbringing but we've all turned out to be quite good and law-abiding citizens!

Hugs for you
