Happy Fathers' Day

Postby Eyes High » 20 Jun 2009 23:40

Just wanted to take the time to wish a very Blessed and Happy Fathers' Day to all the males on the board.

To those who are fathers and do their part in raising their children. Thank you for being a man.
To those who are father figures to someone. Thank you for taking the time to be there for someone who needs you.
To those who may be fathers one day. It is an awesome responsibility that should not be entered into lightly.

And to those from other countries who celebrate Fathers' Day at another time of the year, I hope to learn those dates so that I may wish you a very happy and blessed Fathers' Day at the correct time.
What fear is there in the night?
Nothing, but that which is in our own imaginations.

My kids made me breakfast this morning, the eggs were perfect!

Then I went to Home Depot and got some keyed window sash locks, a door bottom with a rubber insulator for the front door, a rubber sweep for the storm door, which I put a closer and a new brass handle and lock on yesterday. I also put a new A/C blower motor in my Caddy yesterday, on the way home Friday afternoon and it was 100F on the interstate with the usual bumper to bumper traffic and I decided I with God as my witness I would never be sweaty again. That tan leather interior seems like it stores and radiates the heat back directly into your ass.

I just called my step-dad to wish him happy Father's Day, one of the propertiees he's trying to sell was a restaurant and he found a bunch of beer in it. He said he's got three cases so it looks like I might take a trip over to Granny's. That's Mom who sends me the right wing humor, SC, I'll give her your love.

Kewl.

Tell your parents I blame them, too. For, you know, whatever. :lol:
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Thank you Eyes, beautiful words!
Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

By the way, the beer was mostly premium, about three cases; Amstel, Heineken, Sam Adams, Corona, a few Buds, Bud Light Coors Light. There was an Italian Beer I've never seen before, I'll try it tonight and report in the Beer Thread. My basement fridge is stocked now, my family may never see me again... :D

I suggest the garden, the dirts already soft and it will be easy digging. Plus you'll have beautifull flowers next spring. :wink:

Good stuff.

Yes, I believe it also keeps the beer carbonated with CO2 so the keg will last. (I could never drink a whole keg before it got flat, I tried once when I was young and ended up puking blood.)

:shock: lol

that's a pretty sweet fridge tho.. wonder if you could rig up a regular beer fridge to do the same for about $1000 cheaper :P


You can! They sell kits to do it and they ARE much cheaper.

But I have other stuff in my beer fridge, juice for the kids, cokes, etc. But if you have one dedicated, that's the inexpensive way to got.

I like the keg cooler because it's on wheels, you can roll it out for parties or whatnot.
