    Default What Did You Get For Father's Day?

    I received a huge hammock and special pillow for it from L. L. Bean. We are going to place it between two poles out back in the shade.

    BTW the pillow is monogramed with, "Big Joe's."

    This was a very well thought out gift by my wife.:D

    I asked for a 3 dvd set on coaching soccer, but I have a feeling were paying for a refrigerator repairman instead.

    My wife is great cook, I'm sure I'll be well fed and cared for today.
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.

    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    The girls and I were garage saling last weekend, and when we came upon a garage sale with this Yamaha dirt bike for sale, my kids said "Dad, you need a dirt bike for the farm". That was all it took It's a 2003 Yamaha TTR-225. Needs a little fixing on a few things, but overall in good condition and pretty well taken care of. It's the dirt bike for us people with short legs :D

    Well I didn't get anything for fathers day(thank god, no kids that I know of).

    But I did get my Dad a set of Husky PRO screwdrivers from Home Depot for his toolbag......I'm tired of him stealing mine outta my toolbox cause his are so beat up and then when I go to use them they are missing. :D

    About two more weeks before I'll be a father, and that's all I want. No gifts yet, but in a few weeks I'm sure there will be plenty "gifts" (dirty diapers, yeah).

    I got to spend the day with my son! Father's Day is always special with him as we brought him home from the hospital 10 years ago on Father's Day. From my stepson and his mom I got The Police - Message In A Box. Although they're in Wisconsin for the week, I listened to it this morning and thought about them. :)

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA you mean you couldn't handle anything else!!!

    I have sons, thank God. God knew that if I had daughters I would be in jail for assault when they started puberty that is why he gave me sons. A friend of mine has two absolutely beautiful daughters who blossomed early. . . he went prematurely bald and had a small nervous breakdown when the horney little 13 year old boys started knocking on his door every night!!!

    Yesterday, I was treated to an Outback (EDIT: make that Longhorn) 22-ounce porterhouse, 25 ounce Sam Adams, baked potato and Fritz's Turtle afterward.

    Today, had a Sunday brunch at the daughter and SIL's, with a Bubba-gram and Jimi Hendrix CD. Force fed grapes by the grandson while waiting for breakfast (a ploy he used to steal my watch .... again !).

    All in all pretty darn nice. :D

    I took my dad and brother (who's also a dad) golfing. I am not very good, my brother has never played before... so it was an interesting day to say the least.

    Fun times though. Happy father's day to all you dads out there.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    I got a call from dad saying that grandfather died today (of all the days). If you have a grandparent out there, make sure you let them know that they're special.

    Sorry to hear about your grandpop! I think today is a fine day to pass on, he will always be remembered fondly on this happy day.

    Just got back from dinner, besides a full belly of some fine Italian food, my older son gave me, the new Maroon 5 CD, Talking Heads "Remain in Light" RTI 180 gram pressing, Green Day "American Idiot" double LP set, and another copy of The Shins "Wincing the Night Away" LP!

    This was a fine day and I hope all you pops and grandpops had a great day. . . my prayers go up for aaharvel and his family.
