The Whole Fam Damily

My entire gang, gathered together for the first time in 6 years, and the first time together for Father's Day in 15. I am as excited as a puppy with a new bone.

That's sublime. I'm feeling extra dialed-in to the sublimeness of such since I'm sitting in my childhood home as I type this.

Toad, I love most of your posts, not all, but most! I know you are a St Louisiana, as I, but I'm wondering if you know the origins of "whole fam damily"? My mom and dad said it all the time, and I've passed it on to my kids, but as a naive 60 year old, I thought it was original to us. So self absorbed. Have a great day and keep up the good work

Kimme, my posts often surprise me. Some that I'm kinda so so about seem to strike a nerve. Some I really like fall flat. Overall the batting average isn't too bad. I'm glad you like most of them makes me try harder.

My parents fam damilied. My suspicion is it was created to avoid the expletive. Searching Google I found it exists far and wide. Sorry for the no help.
