A Day Off

03971EAB-291A-4E71-B80F-94782688D4D1My blogging buddy, Jim Adams, wrote in his Song Lyric Sunday prompt post last night that, “Nothing says Father’s Day like a backyard barbecue, family, beer and some good eating. All dads love to grill, so get some hearty cuts of meat or maybe lobster tails.”

Well, Jim is 100% correct. And since I’m a father and today is Father’s Day — at least in the U.S. — my grown kids are coming over to pay homage to their old man. And as a dad who loves to grill, I’m going to be spending a good number of hours grilling at least four full racks of baby back ribs and half a dozen ears of corn out on the backyard Weber grill.

I really want to be present for and with my wife and kids today, so I’m taking the day off from my blog. No more posts (probably) after this one. And I most likely won’t have time to read all of your wonderful posts. At least not during the day today.

But I shall return tomorrow. In the meantime, I hope all you dads out there have a great Father’s Day today, even if that’s not a holiday in your part of the world. Give your kids — and your spouse or significant other — big hugs.

    I hope that you have a wonderful Father’s Day Fandango and if anyone here deserves a day off, it is you.

    Well if you gotta barbecue, you gotta have the Giants game on the radio.

    I never learned to love to barbecue. FD was a day to either get away from the house with the kids, or just be left alone at home to do my own thing. I miss those days.

    My boys might contact me, might not, but I’m leaving for a camping trip.

    HFD, F!

      I did. Thanks for asking. I imagine it must have been a tough Father’s Day for you, though.

        I was as close to him as I could be being at the house most of the day. I think that helped.
