I have this great picture of CGMan and the Skater from quite a long time ago. But the picture? Is at home in Austin.
The Skater wasn’t a skater yet…he was just a little boy. The two of them decided to have a parade in the front yard.
So they put on their bike helmets and each grabbed a flag; Dad the US Flag and Skater the Coast Guard flag. They paraded all over the yard.
They were having such fun that the Marine, who was far from being a Marine at the time, grabbed the only flag left in the garage and joined the parade.
The other flag? It was an Ohio State flag, of course.
What? I never told you my husband is a Buckeye? Oh yes, my friends, I am a Buckeye-by-marriage and live in a Longhorn town. But we’ll talk about that another time.
I just wanted to say Happy Father’s Day to all the grand masters in your own parades.
Thanks for all the chats while you’re at work, the recipe exchanges, talks about books and building things together. And also for your excitement about my travels. It’s hard enough to leave my loved ones, but nice to know you’re waiting to hear all about it.
Happy Father’s Day to you. I love you!
