i'm still smiling. i have to think of some way of framing the note and the $$.
It has always been obvious to all of us the special feelings and relationship you have had over the years with your son. Specially when it came to coaching his baseball team. You are one special father. And you son knows it.

BT, that's a great story. You should be proud of your son and that you guys did a good job raising him.

Happy anniversary to you and your wife.! What a wonderful son you both have. He is growing up to be a very special and thoughtful young man. I love what he did for your gifts.

Himself played sous chef today! He came into the kitchen and said "anything I can do?" He NeverEverEver does that. Of course I put him to work!

When he was done, dismissed so to speak, he said "I really didn't do much". I told him it wasn't how much he thought he did, it was that he saved me about half the time of prep work. Just to make him feel good, I think I'll have him slice onions this week the night before I make French Onion soup. The night before so I can be sure they're ready when I am.

Bucky T, please add my Happy An's to the list and also my cudo's to your boy. That is definitely one of the best smiles you can get! I think you and your Mrs. should consider teaching parenting classes!

Went to Panera and got a loaf of Honey Wheat bread sliced thin and for a treat I got us some Wild Blueberry scones. Then went to one of our local deli's and got some shaved smoked pork loin for sandwiches for lunch. I think we will have a very light supper tonight.
