Happy Father's Day!

What comprises a GREAT Father's Day?

Well, for this Grandpa it is an opening of handmade cards from young grandchildren, phone calls from kids, a couple of neat presents, and the final quite satisfactory event....a trip to the Rays game at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg with my Grandson Scott & about 300 of my fellow Elks Lodge members from the Tampa area (West Central District).

Everybody watch! I'll wave! That includes all our kids, and the currently-nine grandkids! Number 10 is due in September! The grands range from a 2 1/2 year old boy in Illinois up to a stunningly beautiful young lady who just-this-week turned 20 and managed to spend some time with us in celebration! Bless them all.

What about The Duchess, you might ask? Well, her interest is not in baseball. She'll be joining her lady friends at Shapes for a water volleyball game or three!

Then home from our various events for a great evening meal!

Sincerely, I hope your lives as Fathers/Grandfathers are as rich and full as is mine.
