Father’s Day

It’s a little after 2:00 in the afternoon on Father’s Day. Elly is over in Williamsport at Penny’s working on their garden, all my children are in California at Adam’s wedding (Adam is Penn and Cassandra’s half-brother and my son Bud’s roommate in DC), where it is three hours earlier.

Needless to say, I haven’t heard from any of my children yet. My two dog boys and my wife made sure I awoke to a card and a gift of pistachio nuts (yum). Maybe before the day is over my three kids (and my Mother, who is out there, too) will get together on the phone and make a Father’s Day Call. I assume they will at some point.

Meanwhile, I’m taking it easy. Elly and I made our Sunday morning visit to the Shepherdstown Farmer’s Market and had a stop at Mellow Moods. Not much happening in town today… and it is getting very hot outside, so it is much better to stay indoors where it is cool.

Anyway, Happy Father’s Day to the Dad’s all over the place….
