A Father's Day After-Action Report


I got Father's Day off! After church I came home to the History Channel and Band of Brothers. My dogs watched it (napped) with me. I had the remote control all to myself...OH YEAH! No stupid WWE wrestling...no stupid Korean soap opera. It was just me, the dogs, and WWII history. Loved it looong time! The New York-New York steaks were seasoned just right, with a special rub and a little olive oil. The steaks were grilled, corn was on the cob, salad was salady, baked beans were beanie, and the beer was COLD! I talked to the wife and son in Korea. They were having good fun there and that made me very happy to hear. In short... it was a great day. I miss them and I want them back right away... but I hope they're gone and out having fun next Father's Day. I'll tough it out somehow. My dogs loved the steak and corn on the cob, but never-again will I let them near the baked beans.

USA_Admial- I damn near blew it and thought about doing some yard work. I came to my senses, had another beer, and said "screw it".

Pam- It was really nice.

Years ago, my wife and her sister had to take their father to Boston for some hospital stuff- there for a week.. It was me, the cat, and the Airedale, and it did get a little lonely... Hang in there!

Now what on earth could be the problem with dogs and beans??

Last dog I had didn't need the beans!!!!

Anyway, sure sounds like a good day, glad you gave the yardwork a miss>

Sounds delicious.

Yeah milk and beans are not a dogs best friend.

Eerie JG ! I had the same weekend. Went Stag.

But I watched the US Open, which because of the weather and Tiger playing like crap and ending up 4 strokes off the lead, it could have been better. But not by much.

I had the same thought! I looked out the back door. (Like John Fogerty of CCR - LINK ) - opened a Cold Heineken (or 8) and said Screw It ! I screwed around the whole weekend. Yee Haw!

LOL - no beans for the dogs...

My son has an autographed copy of Band of Brothers. Those guys visited Germany - the real deal - the WW2 vets! and signed them. I still think that's the coolest thing evah.

Glad your Father's Day was so excellent. Yay!
