Summit Up 6-13-12: Planning ahead for Father’s Day

Summit Up
Special to the Daily Now here's a first: Summit County residents and certified divers John de Roche and Lauren Fredrickson took time to catch up on the local news at 100 feet below sea level while diving in Belize. The pair were off the coast of the Northern Caye at Glover's Reef Atoll in the Caribbean Sea. It just goes to show the SDN keeps you informed even when we're all wet!

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s trying to navigate some photos we need to get in and a giant slice of pie, so bear with us. First off, we need to remind you not to forget Father’s Day, which is Sunday!(Voice of monster truck event announcer: Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!)And that means you either need to get a card in the mail pronto, or start shopping for high-end electronic devices we’re sure any dad would love, such as a brand-new Macbook Pro (8 megs o’ RAM and the retina screen, please) or an iPad or a super-fancy car stereo or a lifetime supply of beer and steak. Y’know, stuff guys really want, not some cheap-ass crayon drawing of you and your dad you did in preschool, or some ugly tie (like anyone wears ties around here anyway) or a mug that says World’s Greatest Dad (unless it’s filled with rubies and emeralds and beef jerky and other good stuff).WARNING: Giant slice of pie ahead! Jump below to the sliver on the right!(online readers: imagine a large slice of pie, pictured in an add for Village Inn, which offers free pie on Wednesdays with any purchase)… and now for the thrilling conclusion of Summit Up:We jest, of course – any dad would love that crayon drawing, even if it makes him look like a morbidly obese chartreuse alien with legs as big as tree trunks and a head the size of a golf ball. It’s the thought that counts.But the iPad would be a nice touch, on top of the drawing. Or the Macbook, or a steak the size of a twin mattress, or big tofu, for veggie dads or …We out.
