Papa's Day plans?

anyone have any father's day plans for this sunday?

i have to work (as usual), but i want to head to the shore by noon and go out fluke or stripers/blues fishing.

dw is balking at that. she wants me to either turn down the work shift, or just get some sleep. she knows that i'll go and go until i crash cause i tend to live my life like a race car without brakes.

but it's daddy's day, so i think i should get to choose.

if we do go down the shore, we'll go for japanese teppanyaki afterwards, then off to the batting cages next door.

i've been hitting 75mph pretty well, so i'll tip the kids that run it to crank it up to 85 or so.

my boy hits 45 mph well, so he's ready for 55. we'll see. he keeps stepping in the bucket, opening his hips up too soon in order to get a better look at pitches. it's a really common mistake for little guys.

anywho, what are you planning, cooking, or eating this sunday, father's day?

I agree with your wife. Take the day off, grab the old man and head down to Belmar or Point Pleasant and go catch some Blues & Stripers! I miss thoughs days. Being in MT is a long way from my old stomping grounds!

I work. Probably sell a ton of steaks at the deli. My son and daughter both work so I'll get the obligatory phone call, or text. That's cool, though. I see them a lot throughout the year. I will pick up my youngest daughter when I get done around 2 and probably come home and have a veal chop with a bottle of Chianti and some loud music.

Ken gets to pick dinner here. He's still in the decision mode so I'll post when he decides.

Saturday is my 40th wedding anniversary and Sunday is Father's Day. Saturday I plan on griiling some Chicken legs I picked up pre marinated at the Mexican market. Sunday we may trek a hike or hit the coast then come home and make some grilled Korean ribs and coconut rice.

I reckon we will be going to Norfolk to visit Mrs Hoot's sister. I have been instructed to bring my banjo and guitar. I 'spect there will be spirits involved.

My dad lives in California, so I'll call him Sunday. I just saw him in Austin a couple weeks ago, so that's good DH is leaving Sunday afternoon for a work trip. Maybe I'll pick up some steaks to grill tomorrow.
