A Busy Weekend

Friday night has arrived, the workweek is over! Time to relax???? Nah! Time to get busy doing what you want to do!

Tomorrow we are up early to go to Stevens soccer jamboree for 3 action packed soccer games that will probably yield a total of 3 goals! Soccer is not my favortite game on the planet..but it is entertaining to see the wide range of athletic skill on those fields . The great thing about Soccer is that everyone plays and gets tired and I get to sit in a chair and yell like I know what they should be doing :-)

Later that night we get to go to one of our family's favorite events...can you guess???? A picnic at a nice lake....a stroll through a favorite park? Perhaps a night of free music at a local bandshell? Nah!!!!! Demolition Derby at the Lions Park! Cheap admission and cheap food and the smell of old cars smashing into one another!!! Makes a city boy like me want to yell YEEEEEHAW! The funny thing is most people would assume that it is me leading the charge to go see such a cultured event..but no...its my Wife who gets into this. Yep the quiet ones are the ones to watch out for !!! :-)

Had a great talk with my Dad as usual. Dad and I cover all sorts of topics when we talk! Gee no wonder I have this blog to share my stuff with all 3 of you! On a serious note, my Dad is going in Monday Am to have a pacemaker installed ( sounds like something with directions and comes in a box when you describe it as a installation!) . Could you please include him in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks again for reading!

Have a great weekend!

Dear Mike:

First of all the picture had to grab me; I wonder why? lol

Your weekend with family doing those "everyday" things and being able to find joy in your family and surroundings make for very very precious moments... And in my opinion is what it is all about.

I also enjoyed our talk last night and appreciated your concluding comments in last night's "blog" entry....

Love dad

Hope you enjoy this weekend with your family!

The thoughts about your dad are very touching...and what is even more moving is this comment from him. There are so many men who are afraid to put feelings for one another out there. How wonderful that you have those feelings in the first place...and that you are able to articulate them to each other.

I will keep your dad in my thoughts and prayers. I know he will be fine! God bless you both..

Thanks Lori!

I do feel blessed that my Dad and I are past the "Men dont talk about feelings" garbage! It makes for much more interesting conversation.

Thanks for the nice note!
