Lucky Ol' Me

Lucky ol' me. It's Father's Day, and I'm a dad. Growing up, it was the farthest thing from my mind. Believe it or not, it took me light years to figure out that boyfriends and girlfriends might lead down this pathway. I never got that embarrassing 'birds and the bees' lecture from Dad and knowing him, I guess that's all well and good. It was a different time and place; let's just leave it at that. Fast forward to today... oh my! Mister old sun is up early shining through the backyard. The plan is to do as little as possible today. A day with Elenka and J-, and if my dream holds true, Elenka's mussels in wine sauce and her strawberry-rhubarb pie later in the day. Father's Day? My best buddy and I with a day to ourselves-- now, that's a pretty good recipe in itself.

  3. Happy Father's Day to the best Dad ever! (well, other than MY Dad, Of course, but he doesn't read this blog....)
    So I get up on this Father's Day, and you are no where to be found!
    I know you're off taking pics for this blog, as you usually are on Sunday mornings, rain or shine. But later we WILL have mussels and even strawberry rhubarb pie! Hope this will be a special day for you. Love ya.
