Happy Father's Day!

We woke up to thunder, rain and sunshine this morning.  Gene's Father's Day started with him washing the cars.  He jumped out of bed and went out into the rain. 

"Get the camera, there is a double rainbow!" he said, knocking on the window.

By the time I got there it was only one.  We did get .59 inches of rain in about an hour and a half.  And it is a steamy 82 degrees F and the sun is still shining!

Here is an interesting post about the apostrophe in Father's Day.  It is evidently right as it is a day to celebrate your own father not fathers in general.  Hmmm.


We are going to lunch at "Hit the Spot" and to music at Arhaven.  More about that another time.  Hope your Father's Day is super!

Happy Father's Day to Gene. The grandbabies were all sick and stayed home today. Jesse is off in China, so I had to take Toby out to lunch myself. Then I promptly ignored him and visited with a friend who was there. Poor Toby:)

Wish Gene a Happy Father's Day! Sounds like you have a good day planned. Interesting article about the spelling. I'm never sure it it is Father's Day or Fathers' Day. lol I always check.

Bag Blog, Gene read your comment before I did. "Poor Toby," he said to me. "What?" I asked. Ha. I bet Toby had a good time anyway.

Joan, that is so true. I'm always checking and you still have to decide who is right. :)
