Happy Father's Day!

I just tried calling my dad but there was no answer, so I thought I'd say Happy Father's Day to anyone who stops by here. Well, anyone who stops by that is a father, the rest get a "Hi!" There, nobody is excluded now.

I'm working today, so my Father's Day celebration begins at about 3 o'clock. That's central time, 4pm eastern, 1pm pacific; check your local listings. We are going out to eat around 5:30pm and I plan on wearing sweatpants with an elastic waistband. Sure, people might think I'm under dressed, but it's Father's Day. A day were a man can be a slob, and nobody can say anything. So guys, go out to eat in shorts, sweatpants, tank tops, and sandals. It's your right! Even if you do not have kids it's OK. Who's going to know? I won't tell!

I didn't get to sleep in today, but my wife let me take a nice nap yesterday. It was my early gift. And, she let me watch golf all day! Even the kids let me watch without asking for one of their shows. The dog was not so cooperative. He kept coming over to me with his toys, wanting me to throw them. He doesn't realize what Father's Day is all about. Then again, it was Saturday, but shouldn't Father's day (OK, and Mother's Day) be all weekend? Yes, it should! Who do we write to change that? The White House? Congress? Hallmark? Let's start a petition! I think we could get enough support to get it passed.

I'm all worked up now. Time for lunch!

Carly: Thanks! It was a good day. I'll try to have a good week. I'd have more luck if I was on vacation. :)
