Happy Fathers Day to all

My elder son (pictured, with my grandson) has organized a Fathers Day pancake breakfast and bike ride. Their neighbor gave him a kiddie bike trailer, and I can adjust my mountain bike to fit my 6'2" younger son, so our foursome should be all set. (My daughter-in-law is in the final month of pregnancy with grandson number 2, so she won't be joining us.)

Happy Fathers Day to all.

My boys were never that obedient, and at age 2, my grandson certainly is not, either.

Had a BBQ with some of my brothers and my son today. Had a great time. Good to see old friends and brothers without having to ride to a clubhouse.

My daughter came over and we put in 37 miles on the tandem. She also brought over a growler from a local brewery that we had to sample afterward. :-)

What's a growler? And WHO was steering the tandem? Did you actually let her . . . . .

I drove to Ohio Friday for my Father's retirement party. I left early Sunday so I could get back at a decent time to spend Father's Day with my youngest son, only to find that both my wife and son weren't feeling well. I did a couple things around the house, then went for a short bike ride. My oldest son called and we talked for a while. I had a pretty good day except for people being sick. Everyone is feeling better now.

Here we are, just 10 days past Fathers Day, and grandson number 2, Erik, has arrived. The only downside was my daughter-in-law went through all-night labor and ended up with a C-section because Erik's 39cm circumference head would not fit down the birth canal -- like grandfather, like father, like son. (Slightly smaller elder brother Henry was almost a C-section.) All's well that ends well -- much to be thankful for, particularly family.
