Father's day plans?

Father's day is coming up! What do you have planned for the dads in your life?

My dad doesn't live around these parts, so it'll be a gift & phonecall. I had a nice hike and picnic planned for dh but mil will be in town, so now I'm not sure what to do. A big breakfast is in the forecast. Dutch babies would be good.

I'm sure I've mentioned this a time or two already... but for Christmas this year Paul's mom and dad gave the whole family Alaskan Cruise tickets. We leave on Father's day. I'm sure we'll have dinner or lunch in honor of Dad sometime on the boat. My dad who lives in Oregon got a card.

How cool is that!!!

My husband went tonight to buy himself a new, bigger lathe for Father's Day.

We have ribeyes in the freezer, so I'm sure that's what he'll want for supper Sunday night. He likes baked potatoes and chilled asparagus spears spears to go with that.
I'd been thinking of making him some scrumptious chocolate dessert for Sunday, but he made a big pan of chocolate fudge last night, and I think that's about as chocolate as one can get.

I guess I'll just have to extra nice to him.

There will be a "nap" in there somewhere on Sunday. And some red meat to eat. And probably lots of war/explosion movies playing in the basement. A call to my dad in New Orleans - his 80th is coming up in a few weeks and we have to plan further for that occasion.

Sounds like my Sunday plans mudbug. Only I think it will be war games on the PS2. BTW, LMAO when I read this post.

Sadly my dad isn't around anymore. I lost him on May 3rd as most of you know. So I'll probably go to the cemetery for the first time, and then to work.
