Father's Day..A Real Hit!
Thanks to all those people who read/and or commented on my dad's story! I think he was very surprised, touched and proud to see his work and picture on the computer screen! (And, yes, there was a tear in his eye as he is wont to do!)
I copied and pasted the comments into Word and printed them for him to have, but if anyone knows how to print the comments page, please do tell!!
My whole family gathered in our backyard for an amazing afternoon ...lots of hugs, chatter, and the ususal raucous laughter! We all have an incredible sense of humour and fun, thank goodness!
It was extremely hot and humid, but only a few minutes of the rain they predicted had a few retreating indoors. The outdoor bar was opened upon the first family's arrival as is the tradition. We were treated to Uncle Bill's claim to fame guacamole dip, and my cream cheese salsa dip. Steak was perfect, (Yah, Dave! No burnt offerings this time!) as were the bean, potato and caesar salads! Fresh baked buns were superb and the piece de resistance, was the dessert, my mom's cherry cheesecake and mother-in-law's key lime pie. Cherry and blueberry pies were on hand as well.
Lots of digital cameras were covering the event, but as always, the premium coverage lies somewhere deep in my heart, in full colour, zoomed in and blown up, for eternity!
Mother of Invention, not thinking, but knowing I have the best family in the world.
