Happy Father's Day!

My computer has been down all weekend which may or may not have something to do with Dea and Darius downloading "free" music for their cell phones from my laptop.

I have told them many a time that "there's no such thing as free music". And by saying that somehow have channeled my own father.

Growing up, he taught me about working hard, taking care of your responsibilities, and taking a second look if something seems too good to be true. I hear him sometimes when I'm trying to teach my kids some of the same lessons.

My Dad lives out of town and we don't get to see him nearly as much as we would like. but, when we do, my kids jump for joy! It doesn't hurt that he often comes with 2lbs. of Jelly Belly's stashed in his suitcase. He knows the path to my children's hearts; sugar.

We've tried to persuade he and his wife to move to Dallas but they'll have none of it. Apparently, if you don't break 110 for weeks in a row in the summer, you're not even in the running.

Curiously, he lives quite a bit closer to my stinky brother.

Odd.

I may need to investigate that further.

Anyway, Happy Father's Day, Daddy! You are loved very much.

And I'm sorry I don't have a picture of you on my phone to post.

People, just imagine the most handsome man ever. Now, remove his hair.

Hope you had a great day!
