Father’s Day

Television series “Father Knows Best.” Photo credit: IMDB.

Robert Bly once noticed a phenomenon others will recognize. Whenever he called his parents’ home and his father answered the phone, after their hello’s, the next thing his father would say is: “I’ll get your mother.” An important moment for Bly was the day when he said, “Wait a minute. I want to talk to you.”
