I got a nice picture from the boys...it is actually made of three separate pictures, in each they are holding a single letter of "D-A-D" with big smiles. My wife came home with a package of strip steaks, two cases of beer, and all the stuff to make my favorite pasta salad (pasta, pesto, olives, and chunks of sausage). should be a good day. :)

Just another day here. Gotten woken up early by a snoring wife. Discovered a leaking toilet that I just fixed two days ago which means I'm going to spend the day fixing it, again. I even started making breakfast for everyone while they slept.

IOF, we both got woke up by the same sound,different wife. Think i will take a nap this morning with plans to try & catch up to the weeds in the garden.Hopefully by this afternoon the ground is dry enough to till,if not then i might use the Echo hand held tiller to scratch the top surface & eliminate a bunch of weeds that way. 48* this a/m ,forecast is for high of 81*with slight breeze,should be a fantastic weather day here.

I got phone calls from both my girls....which surprised the heck out of me. Eve always does a good job...she lands a card in my mailbox & then follows with a phone call on Sunday. Leandra....... she's fun & a sweet girl with a big heart, but it's more likely that I get a call 1 to 9 days late & All "I forgot all about it but you know I love you!" LOL & then we'll talk for an hour. But today, extra special.

Woke up to blue skys and no rain, or overcast, for the first time in week.

The one daughter that still lives near by, conspired with my Fiancée to both take me out to brunch at my favorite restaurant.

Then I got to spend a few hours enjoying the perfect weather, sitting in my porch rocker and cracking open a bottle of Glen Fiddich that the daughter gave me. Followed by a nice afternoon nap. Woke up to a wonderful BBQ dinner the Fiancée cooked. A great day provided by great gals ! :D

BTW she was shooting at one of those swinging targets on the ground. If you maximize the screen you can see it hit.
