The movie & Father's Day
Sunday I went to church, then Starbucks for my mocha. While there son M & family called to say they were on their way up. They met me there, then we came back to my house to BBQ hamburgers & eat them on the deck. The weather was great & a good time was had, plus good food. They left about 15:30 so J could meet her Dad & take him out for pie & coffee.
After that I checked email & blogs, read the Sunday paper, visited with my neighbors & just generally relaxed until about 19:00 when I headed out for Outback Steakhouse for my Father's Day dinner. Last year Annie & I were in Spokane at Yogi Bear campground on Father's Day & we went to dinner at the Longhorn BBQ, one of my favorite places. When home we have always enjoyed Outback, so I went there. I didn't order a Blooming Onion as one person can not eat a whole one, but I had a good steak. And, my waitress was a neat young lady named Annie! So I guess that in a way you could say I had dinner with Annie again this year. It was a good day, about as good as I could hope for considering who is missing this year.
Happy Fathers Day!
Thanks for commenting on my blog, too. I am trying to get back into the story and I hope it's not sounding lame. I want to remember but being as it was so long ago, it's hard. I do need to get up with that aunt!
your post , on the bottom was so touching I teared up, it is hard when you miss someone you love , but I agree with Dorothy , it was a sign her name was Annie, Life is a wonderful thing , a path we go on and get to share with people we love , we never know do we how long we have them in our lives , we must carry on with life but carry them in our hearts always .Thank you for sharing :}cuddles for Huggy
I won't go there again by myself.
I'm glad your Father's Day was a good one. You are Blessed.
I drove the new to be Everett route today and did it in 48 minutes. I had it planned for 50 minutes. We have another meeting Monday with Skat and will finalize the schedule and get it in the papers. I will probably be out there riding the buses on the first day!
About holidays alone... someone told me "this is the last time you'll have to do this for the first time." Once I figured out what she meant, it helped.
I love going to the drive-ins ... we only have a few now, there used to be one in just about every suburb. I haven't been this year yet ... it's always nicer in summer.
Have a great weekend.
Take care, meow
