Father's Day?

Huh, so this is it. I am a single Dad, and my kid is out of the country doing the exchange student thing. She did text me this morning though. Glad she is thinking about old dad. My Mom usually calls to tell me how proud she is of the kind of father I am, but I have not heard from her yet.

I have stripped the bed and am washing sheets and the comforter, did darks yesterday and will do shorts and socks later. My big goal for the day is to knock out a couple hundred 9mm reloads. Am thawing some 80-20 in the fridge for a nice burger later. Oh happy day.

Happy Father's Day Timberwolf.

I had the pleasure of seeing my father (and mom) last week. It was good to see them again.

Daughter made me a Key lime pie and bought me a pound of Black Rifle Coffee beans. We get along real good.

A Happy Father's Day to you, Wolf, as well as the rest of the dad's on here.

This is my first, and I couldn't be happier with my wife and 6.5 month old daughter. Daughter is cute as heck, happy, healthy, and developing right on track. Can't ask for much more than that. I'm going to the gym, then it's family fun by the pool and grill at the in-laws.

Happy Fatherís Day gents! Congrats to you Lew on your first. I was able to get a 13.5 mile mountain bike in this morning, to come home to waffles with the family and some good espresso. Then off to the lake for a beach day and a good paddle on the SUP. Now the q is going and chickens been marinating since last night. Good day!

Oh yeah, my 460 Rowland conversion kit showed up in the mail! Another check in the awesome day box.

Happy Fathers Day

Picked up my son Friday mid morning and headed to one of the Maricopa county campgrounds. We set up then headed to a Brazilian Steakhouse. It was pretty good and we enjoyed ourselves. Saturday we just explored some areas I didnít really know then to a range and watched some folks competing. My son was kind of wowed by it. Had to explain the dedication to practice etc... and money involved. But did tell him that when we shoot and he applies himself consistently... Iíd look into seeing if we could explore competition shooting together. Then grilled steaks and had a relaxing evening. Sunday breakfast was each their own and hooked up the toy hauler and then dropped him off to mom in Casa Grande. I have to work tonight.....
