Father's Day

This is Father's Day and it will be a strange one without Bob. The kids always took him to dinner and Leslie always gave him a gift and a card. We have a Father's Day cookout planned for after church today. It won't be held at Cotton's Pond this year. It will be held at John and Leslie's home. Since it will be scorching hot, though, we will hold it indoors there.

I went out to church yesterday evening and did some cleaning and that old junker of a car was still parked in the parking lot. I called the sheriff's department and found out who owns it. I tried to look up the number of the person who owns it to call them but she must be using strictly a cell phone. Then I had it towed. It had been in our parking lot for over two weeks. They have had plenty of time to pick it up. They hadn't even left a note with it to try to explain why it had been left there all that time. They certainly hadn't tried to get permission to use the parking lot.

I let Slinky in briefly yesterday evening. He was terribly hot and couldn't even eat his dinner. He cooled down on the kitchen floor and then ate his dinner. After it cooled down a bit outside, I let him back out.

Even with the expanded basic TV service, I couldn't find anything to watch last night so I just went to bed early. I hadn't slept well the night before and was tired anyhow. I slept well last night though.

We went to John and Leslie's for our Father's Day picnic and it was great fun. There must have been about 15 of us that attended. Everything was so good!

Glad to hear you slept well. Sounds like you are staying pretty busy. I am sure father's day will be strange for you. You did the right thing by towing the car. Some people are so inconsiderate. They could have at least let you know something about why they left it. Hope you have a good week. It is supposed to be in the high 90s here all week. The humidity is what gets you here. It was 90 percent this morning.

Thanks, Judy. I was a little disconcerted about having the car towed but it didn't appear they were going to pick it up any time soon.a
