That sounds like a good idea Middie. Bring some nice flowers with you for him, or can you plant in the cemetary? Sometimes your allowed to actually plant shrubs and flowers. Should be a touching moment for you and your sister.

No flowers. I'm taking him a beer and lighting a cigarette for him. And if I know know my dad he'll say "It's about time !". I'll probably get in trouble for it since it's a national cemetary but oh well. Oh and the card I purchased for father's day but never got to put on his grave yet.

Today, a good college friend and her 4 year old son arrived to spend part of the weekend. Tomorrow, we are going to a crafts faire and than we will have lunch at the restaurant where my mom works. On Sunday, I will probably watch the NASCAR Nextel Cup Race, do laundry, and other stuff around the house. I want to make cookies to take to work on Monday, but it is too hot to use the oven.

The heat wave has hit us, and right now I'm trying to cool down my dining room enough to eat there (if not, it'll be trays in the living room where the window a/c unit is). Whoever shows up will be here at 4, and we're grilling wings and I have a rice salad ready to go. Yesterday we did "the usual" -- I read to my shut-in friends, then we all met for drinks and dinner after. It turned into quite a party. Tomorrow is recovery!

I play in a band, so I gigged Friday night, took the wife to Famous Dave's for ribs on Saturday afternoon, then went to Binny's Beverage Depot and picked up a bottle of Bowmore Cask Strength, then gigged Saturday night, and gigging again Sunday afternon. Then when I get home, I'm going to sample my new bottle of Bowmore!

Camping all weekend for us.. Seems dumb now considering it was a record hitting 104 degrees on the Lake. I did a little fishing during the day, but spent most of my time relaxing, swimming, and cooking.. :)
