Father's Day Just Hours Away

In case you forgot, Father's Day is just a few hours away now.

Some last minute procrastinators were calling and stopping by D & J Golf in Bryan for gifts for Dad.

A survey from the National Retail Federation says Americans will spend about $12.7 billion for Father's Day, an average of about $117 per person.

That's up about 10 percent from last year.

"Not so much this morning so they're pretty much waiting till the last minute this afternoon. Usually we get a lot of gift certificates on Saturday. People can't decide," said Dallas Lewis, co-owner of D & J Golf.

Father's Day celebrations in the U.S. started a little less than 100 years ago.
