Happy Father's day, remembering Dad and having fun.

Where are we today ?

        Happy Father's day to all you Father's out there and remembering our Father who passed away many years ago Dec. 20th 1997 we have so many good memories of fun times with him.

        Now for today my oldest daughter Kim and son Ken have called and decided just the two of them would make the two hour drive to come vist me for Father's Day! It was supposed to be  thunderstorms all day so they left the three grandchildren home with son-in-law Brian.  And take me and Suzie out for lunch at my choice of places. Youngest daughter Jesse was over three hours away and could not make it. Well guess what, the weather guesser was wrong! Poured rain all morning until they got here about 1pm then the skies cleared and had a beautiful sunny afternoon.
        Well in Buckhorn there is only three restaurants (and not much else). We have been to the Cody Inn (chinese) and The Olde Ice House (small Irish pub) both very good, but have not been to Mainstreet Landing which has a perfect view of the Trent waterway and boats coming into the liftlock. So Mainstreet Landing it is. Of course a cold pitcher of brew and appetizer of pickerel bites, very tasty. The three of us decided a feast of chicken wings and fries.  Suzie had the fish and chips. All very good food, decent service and reasonable prices. But ya know the best part was the kids went out of their way to visit the old man, made my day!

        After lunch a short walk by the lift lock and check out a few boats here, not  very busy as supposed to be a rainy day. Ha, fooled them eh?
       Then a quick stop at the bakery to pick up some awesome pecan tarts, back home for a coffee to go with the tarts, then time for the kids to head back home.
and they even brought me a gift,
a "Good Times", camping T-shirt
        Well just want to thank them for dropping by and making my day, so nice to see them when we can. And the shirt and lunch was a bonus. No supper again tonight after a satisfying lunch.
        Thanks for stopping by on Fathers day and hope all you Fathers out there had a good one too!
