FATHER'S DAY 2008
It was a wonderful Father's Day.
The only thing that would have made it any better would to have been able to have had the whole family here. But even though we may be several miles apart, we are TOGETHER!
Joy and Jill fixed a fabulous meal - prime rib, broccoli casserole, 3 bean salad, fruit salad, meringue dessert with fresh fruit compote.... YUMMY!!!!!
My family gave me this willow tree in 2000. It had about a 1 1/2" diameter trunk when I planted it. (I just remembered that when I dug the hole to plant it, the very first shovel full, I "NAILED" the cable TV line - out of about 300 feet across the back yard, what are the chances of that!?). Anyway, the tree has flourished. Willows are one of my favorites.
Joy was checking out a bird's nest up in the tree.
We looked at some houses for sale in Naperville.
One of our wonderful traditions is a trip to Caribou on these holidays.
Look at this beautiful lady holding her favorite Caribou drink!
And as I bring this post to a close, I want to remind you that the sun is setting over Joliet. The time is late and we must work.... oops, I slipped into a missionary mode there.
Great cloud formation. Look at those two holes in the cloud.
