A Good Father's Day

In Knoxville
We went down to Knoxville yesterday afternoon to see my Dad on Father's Day. We had a good visit. I had the opportunity of seeing the tomato garden and seeing how much they had grown. Here's a picture of me with my Dad as we were resting and talking about the tomatoes.

Check yesterday's post about my Dad.

The second picture shows Dad behind one of his tomato plants. It's hard to believe that the vine that started out so small and has grown so large. Dad's tomato plants are covered with blooms and small green tomatoes. It won't be long now!

It was a good day for me!
Bethany sent me a nice card, and a gift certificate from BassPro for Father's Day, and she called me yesterday, too! She's always so thoughtful. Like her Mother! Kevin, Lesley, Kara and Zachary came over last night with cards and gifts for me. I also got hugs from Kara and Zachary! Mandy called me yesterday to wish me a happy Father's Day! I have wonderful children and grandchildren.

A Question
If a man yells in the woods and no woman hears him, is he still wrong?

Quote of the Day
The greatest gift I ever had Came from God;
I call him Dad!

Joke of the Day

"I have 2 large dogs, and was buying a large bag of Purina at Wal-Mart and was in line to checkout. The woman behind me asked if I had a dog? Duh? (is she kidding???). On impulse, I told her no I didn't have any dogs, I was starting The Purina Diet again. Although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital the last time. But I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out my nose and mouth, and IVs in both arms.

"I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story, particularly a tall guy who was standing behind her.

"Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me? I told her no, I'd been sitting in the road scratching myself behind the ear with my hind leg and a car hit me. I thought the guy standing behind her was going to need help as he staggered to the door laughing."
