Perhaps when I get old (er), I said to Lisa, I’ll keep the camera nestled in my lap while sitting on the porch and take pictures of clouds.

Lisa said, sure, reassuring like I’d just slipped off.

The garden is still behind but showing promise. The beans came up like gangbusters. Not like other years. The cabbage is doing the best out of what was planted. The weeds are kicking ass, until tomorrow. That’s when I’m heading out there like a pimp with my angry hoe.

Just words. My friend, said, he wanted a shirt that said, free speech is more important than your feelings. I agree. The problem is, if you want the shirt, you have to be on the internet and buy it from the white supremacists.

Fathers Day. I was lucky. Phone calls and even a few Instagram tributes. It was pretty nice. Better than being like most of the dads on Instagram . . . already dead.

Tomorrow, I’m heading out there like I said. That’s the trick, and probably what makes a good father.

Very fine day.

    Mine was a fine day, too. I got to see all three of my kids, one in person. My new grandson, age 2.5 months, even gave me a nice smile or two on the video chat.

    I did notice several dads honored on the internet tubes that were already dead. I think it will be a while before I get into that crowd.

    I liked your top photo of the cloud. It looked like virga.

    Lot of giggles in that post – so many funny little snippets 😉

    I wish useful veg would self-seed somewhere in my garden!

    I always think herons look really prehistoric – great birds though…

    Love that first photo – you always seem to get very innovative and unusual shots. Good to keep a camera handy – I’m very bad at doing that and miss a lot of stuff.
