Happy Father's Day

Quote of the Day: My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys." -- Harmon Killebrew

For the second year in a row, Tash and I spent Father's Day in Idaho. And like last year we had a wonderful time visiting Tash's parents, Gene & Celeste Fox. With the temperature in the upper eighties and not a cloud in the sky, we sat on the lawn at Ste. Chappelle Winery in Caldwell, Idaho, sipping wine and listening to a live concert by Steve Eaton. Mr. Eaton is a talented vocalist who played the keyboard and accoustic guitar. He was accompanied by Steve Flick on saxaphone and flute.

The last time I was with my children on Father's Day was 2006 when my daughter Elizabeth drove me from Massachusetts to Connecticut to visit my son, daughter-in-law & granson before taking me to the airport for a flight to Seattle. Sadly, I have not been able to fly back east since.

I'll be right back with more text and photos...
