For someone that does not like Santa and the Easter Bunny, it was a given you would have a problem with Fathers day. With any luck, Jr. will stick you with the restaurant bill or drive you over to some rest home and have you committed.
I got up at 6:30:am and drove 70 miles and cleaned off my fathers grave and changed out the flowers.
My son and i always spend fathers day together doing something we used to do in his youth. today we went out for lunch and to the movies to see 'finding nemo'. sometimes we go to the smithsonian.
i also called my dad to wish him a happy fathers day. fathers day isn't too bad for me but for some it has to be very bad. i have two good friends who have lost children. my son just this week attended the funeral of a 23 year old friend. this special day must be hell for these people.
Got up early, caught a shower, Brewed a pot a coffee. Read the paper with some light music on. Went out and did some yard work ( had to pull a dead pine tree with pick up).
Rototilled the ground, got my grass planted.
Got back in the house and it was still early, waited till the kids got up and we cooked breakfast. Went over to the inlaws and had a few beers. Not enough days anymore for this stuff, just goofing off. Make the most of them..
Drank coffee, rassled & played with my 2 y/o boy, consoled the 7 week old girl (colic), did yardwork also (friggin' HOT!), went to mee maw's for family gathering & big 'ole pot of seafood gumbo, salad and french bread yum.
Originally posted by rob10 My parents last year on the Fourth of July. Are any of the rest of you brave enough to post your family gatherings?
I posted pictures of my clan at Thanksgiving time.
The whole family comes to my house in August for the Bennington Battle Day Parade. This is a bigger event then even the Fish Festival in Vemilion OH. After the Parade everyone comes to our house for swiming, food,suds and of course a poker game breaks out.
Anyway, rob10, a "good" son would have installed a central air conditioning system for his Dad for Father's Day. Maybe one of those high efficent 410A-16 SEER systems. Your folks are spending a arm and a leg running that 7.5 SEER window shaker. Nice going robby.
