For the best jokes, for when Mom says no, for the times our vehicles are making a scary noise, and for every special moment in between, Dad’s are always there.

While we should shower them with appreciation and love every day, there is one special day each year that we honor them – Father’s Day.

Ocean Lakes’ Favorite Dad | We want to take this time to wish our favorite Dad, Mr. Nelson Jackson, a Happy Father’s Day.

Mr. Jackson once said, “I have a very simple philosophy I live by and it is this: There is no limit to the good a person can do if they don’t care who gets the credit. If I was giving advice to young people today, I would tell them to find something you love to do and remember that success comes from two things: inspiration and perspiration. Just remember to get the ratios right - 5% inspiration and 95% perspiration.”

Until Next Time | Dad’s, take it easy this Father’s Day. Relax, take a camping trip to your home away from home, and enjoy your special day.
