My Dad gave up his driver's license today. No, that didn't make me smile, though I am really proud of him.

What made me smile is when he said that he made the decision to just do it after I drove to and from his place about an hour away from here. He said that he has every confidence in the world in my driving and none in his. This is the same man that used to criticize everything I did behind the wheel!!!

Doin' my usual porch settin'. The sky is awesome...streaks of salmon, aqua, peach, baby blue. Colors that don't have names. I'm also being "buzzed" by the hummingbirds that have found the feeder. I think I'm going to have to wear a hardhat from now on. They're wild little critters. Temp is about 75F and essentially no humidity, slight breeze. Thelma, Violet and Tumble (kitties) are close by and the milkie dish isn't empty yet. What a night on the porch!!!!
