Much love to both our Fathers who are no longer with us.  I sure could have used my Dad's help at the farm, he was a woodworker extraordinaire who could have done so many cool things for us at the farm.  He was one of those Dad's that knew how to do a little plumbing, a little electrical, a little auto repair, etc.  

This afternoon we are off to 2nd Man's brother's house for a Father's Day celebration for him (he has three children and two of them are parents as well) so lots of Dads around.  The sweetest thing from 2nd Man's niece, who is a Mom herself, when I said we aren't Dads but we are glad to be there...she said "Uncles are just as great as Fathers".  Aww....!

Menu is fajitas and all the fixings, 2nd Man made Mexican rice and charro beans.  I made a red tomato blender salsa and a green tomatillo salsa.

For those wondering about the farm drama, it's all fixed, thankfully, and I'll have  an update tonight if it's not too late when we get back. 

Happy Father's Day to all of you out there!


  1. You all have a wonderful day and try to stay cool if possible.
    The heat is unbearable and summer has only begun. Well tomorrow is actually the 1st day of summer.
    Boy, hate to think what it's going to be like the next few months

  2. Happy Father's Day to all!
    Have a great day at your family's celebration!

  3. Like both of you, my father (and father-in-law) have passed but I like to think they are often around. In fact, there have been certain times in my life when I have definitely felt my fathers presence. Just remembering them keeps them alive. Enjoy the celebrations.

  4. My father built two of our houses. He could fix anything in the house or car. He made toys and chests and furniture. When he was too old and had emphysema, he taught my 17-yr-old brother how to roof the house. I am like him in that I can teach anything to people. Sometimes, it is a skill I have never done. The house never leaked, so I guess he taught my brother correctly.

  5. I will agree about Uncles being just as great as fathers. Since Dad died Uncle Bob has been my go to guy for all information about any "how-to's" I need to know.
