Father's Day

We made it back home after a busy weekend. We made it in less than 8 hours, which is pretty good considering the trailer. The traffic was great until we got beyond Boston and were heading south to Quincy. The highway was backed up and 2 out of 4 lanes were closed for repaving. Lovely. We knew we were back home at that point.

Today is Father's Day so I would like to take a moment to reflect on my dad. We always had a good time on Father's Day because we'd usually go boating and then have steaks out on the grill. One year, Dad got a ticket on Father's Day because we had taken a short-cut through a parking lot, and the police stopped him. He was pretty mad about that, especially the fact that the police officer had pulled him over on Father's Day.

Father's Day seems a little cruel to people who don't have their dads in their life. I'm glad it's a holiday because I have a lot of happy memories of my dad, but it would've been nice to have had it postponed this year. I suppose that eventually I will think of my dad and not feel so sad, but that day hasn't come yet.
