    Afternoon Bret & Happy Father's Day to you & all of you guy's !!! Very relaxing day today , somewhat...need to get the tractor up and running. Had to pop over to our local John Deere dealer and get another part for my mower. Spring was busted. This winter I'm going to make sure my blades are sharp before next season. Then I treated hubby to a nice Mexican lunch. Hope all is well in y'all's neck of the woods.

    I went to lunch with my father. I hope I look as good as he does when I'm his age.

    I am extremely jealous Art.......
    At this point in my life, I'd give all my worldly possessions for one more day with my Dad. It must be unbelievably enriching to your week (he11..year) to be able to sit and share the wisdom and guidance of 'Dad' while breaking bread. With the talk of 'Dad'......and the consideration of what guys like JP and Bret accomplish......it makes old fossils like me very jealous and reminiscent....
    All those that can.....enjoy and spend time with Dads and Kids......

    My Father's day gift from my boys was their completion of a 13 mile road hiking route yesterday.

    They, at 10 and 12, were able to keep up with the 2 17 year old scouts that were with us for the entire route, laughing, chatting and generally having a great time.

    Towards the end of the hike, as Dear Ol' Dad was doing his dead-level best to motivate the stragglers that were the better part of a half a mile behind the leaders, they called me for permission, then just took off and completed the hike to meet the waiting parents at the pick-up point as I toddled, trudged and plodded along, shouting encouragement to the four straggling hikers that ran a solid 30 minutes behind our "schedule"

    All hikers completed the route, despite chafing, blisters, sore legs, sore knees, limps and tears.

    After the hike, my little one came up and showed me a picture he'd found on the internet.

    It said, in effect: "my dad doesn't play football, baseball, basketball, hockey etc, but he's still a Professional. A Professional Dad."

    My heart almost exploded with how awesome my little guy is, and I TOLD him so.


    Hope that Father's Day find you well, Bret and the rest of the fathers here.

    I'm going to have to show my dad this picture tonight, Doug. He spent his youth in the rockies of BC.

    JP does have a great blessing, on that we all agree!

    ...and you said you were fat...I think you're doing pretty well there. I take it you were able to keep up with your daughter, right? With her metabolism, she still has the lean body mass.....

    Good mourning Bret & all. Bret hope the swimming helps with strength & balance. I like to swim in the pond here with the grand-kids but they will not be here this summer so guess I'll just float alone. Yep summer is just around the corner ! Y'all be safe out there. Yesterday out in the cabana drinking a cold glass of water when a big snake comes swimming by. Guess he didn't make it to the other side
