HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD...............
Do you see a pattern here with the two pictures? He loves dogs, that's why he and Archie are such buddies. And, he always had cool cars.
His birthday was yesterday and he spent the day cleaning the lawn mower among other stuff. I called my cousin Jack and asked if they would like to meet us at the restaurant that dad and Sarah always go to after church. He said, "Sure, great idea!" I had gotten an email from another cousin and I mentioned the lunch to her and she just let me know last night that she and her mom will be there. I hope they contacted the other two nephews, 'cause I don't have their numbers. I had to tell dad that I would meet them there but he doesn't know about his nephew and niece showing up. He had asked me not to do anything, but, if he gets mad, he'll get glad again. Won't be the big party we had for his 90th at the Park. Friends brought their tractors and the rangers all thought that was so cool. This will be a nice little get-together with family.
Finally had a couple of days with NO rain, but it's nasty and hot, in the 90's. Have the A/C on for the dogs (and me). Hope everyone had a good Independence Day. I went to lunch with friends and came home and mowed. Got stuck, twice, down by the creek. I have always been able to mow that part of the yard until now. I hope it's not the drain field acting up. Darn 'fall grass' is coming, and the yard will soon look like a shag rug. I hate that stuff.
Did breakfast on Friday at the Golf Course, took Archie 'cause we eat out on the patio. Everyone loves that dog. A couple sat down at the next table and we were talking about dogs. The husband had already wussed on him, then the wife got up and came over and made over him. He eats this up 'cause he was so neglected the first 3 years. Then his aunts and uncles started showing up, made his day. He got his own scrambled egg and a cup of water. Doing it again this coming Friday, hope it's not raining so he can go along.
