“Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.”  ~Bill Cosby

The day started out quiet. I caught up on a little reading and writing while husband and daughter slept in. Husband got up first and I wished him a happy Father’s Day.  We sipped China Rosepetal tea while we made breakfast together. Fried potatoes, bacon and basted eggs…MAN FOOD! 🙂 YUM!

I was so happy that I got to talk to my dad on the phone today and wish him a happy Father’s Day too. We had a great conversation about writing, art and our current, common peeves… hee hee. As always, it was fun to catch up.

Later in the day, Jeff, Gracie and I strolled downtown to the annual classic car show here in Red Wing. 50s tunes played over the loud speaker and the sun shined brightly overhead in the town square while we oohed and aahed over the gorgeous Chavelles, Cameros, Chargers…and many other makes and models.

We decided to go to Norton’s Downtown for a bite to eat. Great food, as usual.  Gracie had the Nueske’s Bacon BLT, and Jeff and I had the catfish po-boy and a couple cocktails…MMMMM…..

On the way home we stopped at the Farmer’s Market for some fresh strawberries and rhubarb (for pie!) and I got to flirt with my favorite farmer’s market guy. 😉

How did you spend Father’s Day?
