HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
especially if you thought it was Mother's Day or my birthday, so you pampered the living daylights out of me...
Really and truly, that's how I felt today.
My Father passed away thirty five years ago, so I usually celebrate with whomever I live near. Like my son or one of my sons-in-law.
This year it was my Texas daughter, her husband and my grandkids. I baked a chocolate bundt cake with almond flavored glaze for my son-in-law, and brought it over with a small gift from his "other son", JJ, accompanied by this picture for his "Dad".
We all headed out to the movies to see something guys like. But really, it was not too bad, I was surprised that I liked it, but I did.
After the movie, we went out for a bite to eat. Some of us were hungry, some weren't really, so we decided to go to our favorite deli, Jason's. I had a fruit platter, my grandson had a baked potato and my daughter and her husband had sandwiches. My granddaughter picked a bit off each plate. It worked out great.
So while we're chit chatting, I happen to ask if my granddaughter, who has
My darling son-in-law, Master Sergeant John,says "let's go to the mall and look around for some hiking boots". Off we go, and we look in several stores. He like totally waits on me hand and foot, bringing me stuff to try on.
I finally decide on these.
Nice and versatile. The kicker? Before I can get my Sunday best flip flops on, my daughter is paying for my new shoes! So you see why I figured they had their holidays mixed up...or else, as I asked on the way home, "did my doctor call and say be extra nice because I was terminal or something"?
So now, I'll quit bragging about how blessed I am, and how fortunate I am to have such great kids and grandkids..and Sons-in-law.
