A nice sunrise through the trees, chatted with  Bill and Chris on the deck with morning coffee for a bit, Puttered around for a while then got a nice walk down the road and back for my first mile in. Chat a bit more, worked on my pictures from yesterday and began this posting. Got a nice text and pictures  from daughter number 2 wishing me Happy Father's Day and wanted to know if we are around for supper. Thanks for the offer but we away and will be back in the area in a couple of weeks, They will take us out for supper then, works for us and them. Also a text and picture from my son and an email from daughter number one. Nice to hear from them all today !

92F outside but a nice breeze
Missing my Dad, what a happy fellow he was
Happy Father's Day Dad
     We chatted with Bill and Chris for a while outside in the shade with a nice breeze in a very warm 93F day. Actually turn on our AC for a while to cool our coach down to a comfortable temperature before calling it a night and heading inside.
     There ya go another busy weekend we enjoyed with more family and friends, Thanks for joining us and hope you Dad's had a great Father's Day as well !
