BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER and family were out of town so she didn't get in this picture

BILL GRILLED STEAKS, PEPPERS AND ONIONS FOR US AND THEY WERE

CHECKER BOARD
WE USED POKER CHIPS FOR THE CHECKERS AND IT WORKED OUT JUST GREAT.
THE GIRLS BEAT ME ........

IT RAINED (BLESSED RAIN) PART OF THE EVENING AND SMELLED AND FELT SO GOOD.

WE NEEDED IT SO MUCH OUT HERE IN HOT, DRY WEST TEXAS


I AM SO THANKFUL FOR OUR GOD, OUR FAMILY, OUR COUNTRY

HI BJ, It sounds like the perfect fathers day, and much like what we did to celebrate. I'm glad you got some rain, hopefully the garden will start to recover now.

Morning BJ!! That sounds like the best Father's Day...family and fun! So glad you got some rain...we sure need some down here..this humidity and heat just sucks up all the moisture down here (usually leaves it trickling down every nook and cranny of your body before you can even step outside good and get the door shut!!!!)lol Have a great day sweetie!!

Hi BJ, trying to catch up on everyone's posts. I was at my sister's open house for her makeover party in Atlanta. The five sisters were together. I'm posting it on Wed.

I enjoyed your relaxing Father's Day pics. I can never win at checkers with my grandkids. They have tricks we don't know. I,m glad you had a nice day. Is that your dh sleeping on the couch? :)

Take care, Jeanne

Jeanne said...

Love ya and a good try, Jeanne

I'm glad your hubby and son had a good Father's Day. Sorry your daughter missed out, but I'm sure she was having a good time.

Jean, your Father's Day sounds a lot more restful than ours, but not any more fun. We had lunch at church and a very full rest of the day including my beautiful daughter and I registering the kids for Summer Excitement out under the trees in the common area at LCU where it RAINED on us until we had to move up on the porch. Isn't that great? You're right about how good the rain smelled and felt. The breeze was nice afterwards too. So glad Bill and David had a good Father's Day and your family could be together for the most part. Sorry your beautiful daughter had to miss it, but you got yo enjoy the girls anyway. Don't worry about the girls beating you at checkers. Playing on that gorgeous table was worth it. Love you! Martha

BJ: Thanks for your sweet comment on our little trip to Sylacauga. You know how how it is down south right now! My hair went limp, my makeup ran and I think my deo wore off but we had a great time with Wanda and all our other little shopping adventures. Rhoda is such a sweet, sweet girl and I see many more "road trips" with her in the future.

Looks like a wonderful, restful day! I had not thought about using the table for playing checkers, but it's perfect for that. I still think that table is awesome. Glad you got some rain!
