Father’s Day 2006.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 12:23 pm

Bonus! This year, Father’s Day is a two-day event. Yesterday, daughter TJ and husband came by for a visit, which included taking me (and Mrs. Parkway) out to dinner, which included a couple soup bowl-sized martinis (Bombay Sapphire, up with olives – a civilized drink). Thereafter, we assembled on the deck for some excellent champagne AMERICAN sparkling wine and lots of shoot-the-breeze.

This morning I was a little under the weather as a result of enjoying yesterday’s refreshments, but I managed to drag my ass out the door for the morning walk, albeit with a kinder cadence. I took advantage of the alone time to “visit” with my dad, and a pleasant visit it was, even though I miss him dearly.

In a little while, I’ll be heading to THE Deck, at the home of my Bodyguard and the Deckmistriss, to hang with the Usual Suspects. There will be several fathers in attendance, and we’ll see how well we fare with taking the position that we should be waited on all day, a prospect about which I am not terribly optimistic.

Happy Father’s Day to the dads out there and to the people who love them.


  1. Happy Father’s Day to you, Jim. I’m glad you had a nice time, yesterday and hope you havea great time today.

  2. Are you SURE that was TJ? I was contemplating the theory that she may have been abducted or had to go underground on the last episode of ALIAS. For her to show up on Father’s Day is a good thing. Did she look different? Any stranger than normal mannerisms? *grins*

    Glad ya had a wonderful day!
