This year for Father’s Day I did something I have never done. I took the day off work and spent it with my Dad.
I am sure that seems typical for many people, but for those who know me well it is as unheard of as snow in Florida in July.
I drove out to his house, which is abougt an hour and twenty minutes west of mine.
Then we went to breakfast at a great Italian place called Mama Nunz. It was some of the best gravy and biscuits I have had at home or out, probably #3 or 4. this place is basically like being at home so no wonder it was so good.
After we got done eating we went back to Dad’s and fished in his pond. The fish were not biting, which according to the folklore rhymes was to be expected. But we had fun and I did catch one big one. We let him go back though.
We had a great day, one that we will both keep as a wonderful memory and testament that the past can be left there. Now can be wonderful and does not have to have any clouds from the past attached. This goes for all of life.
Thanks Dad for a wonderful day of just hanging out with nothing pressing. I am ready to do it again soon.
