Random Thoughts

It's the weekend!

The boys went to North Manitou Island for a weekend of hiking and camping.  It's a real roughing it trip, no running water, have to pack in all your own food and pack out all your trash.  I stayed home for numerous reasons.

Tom and Reen are coming today for a short visit, on thier way by to a fishing week in norther Michigan.  We're really looking forward to that visit.  We'll be grilling ribs and tater tots tonight!

Happy Father's Day to the Dad's out there.  It's an onerous responsibility, but one that has it's own rewards.  Her's a few of the father figures that that influenced me.

Dad, what a baby face in this shot.

Owen, he never did like getting his picture taken.

 Grandpa Young, not sure who's with him but judging by the year, I'd have to say John Sipley and his Dad.

 Grandpa Ames, on the back step, he was really good with tools.

They're all gone now, so take some advice, if you're Dad's still alive, take a minute and tell him thanks for whatever.  He'll appreciate it and you're feel better.  Oh, hey Bob, Thanks for all that you've done for us.

 While shopping today I stopped in the shaving section and ran across this little item.  It appears to be a cross between a hot wheels car and a razor.  It's intended for shaving one's head.  Interesting.

Have a great day!
