What are you doing eating "a few pounds" of tobacco?

I am about to go grab a pipe, pack it, go outside with the pups, and then smoke it.

I visited and delivered a bed to my oldest son a couple of days ago. I rarely hear from him. I take it as no news is good news. He seems to be doing ok. He lives out in the "country"
My.middle boy and my daughter seem to be doing well. I miss the days when they were young.

I'm excited about watching The Incredibles II with my wife. Sometimes I call her Mrs. Incredible or Elastigirl. I'm certainly not that incredible or elastic.

Daughter #2 and her wife (yep) are flying in to visit tonight. I haven't seen them in almost a year. Baseball games, rafting, concerts, farmers markets, a day in the mountains, and brewery tours are planned. It'll be nice.

Found three bucks in my wallet so I stopped at Hardee's for two sausage and egg biscuits for $3.21. I am on the second now.

I will be speaking at a church the Sunday after Father's Day.
Me too. Probably not the same one though.

I was part victim of "fake news" in the local paper. It is seriously unfair all the work I'd have to do to set it right.

Have they seen Fast Times at Ridgemont High and appreciate the nostalgia or are you just a cool dad and they thought they were you? Either way cool gift.

I've avoided direct posts to you since you came back Fainn 'cause I know I write stuff that bothers you, but
Woo Hoo! Now that's a Father's Day gift to remember! Congratulations.

Daddy is a skateboarder and they know I've wanted to find a pair of Vans that fit my wide clown feet. Finally found a model that is generous enough and let them pick out the colorway.

Plus, they are a bit too young for Fast Times.

Saw the new college president in the parking lot today. I went over to welcome him, stuck out my hand and said, “Welcome to Fort Lewis, Peter.”

He said, “My name is Tom.”
