Relaxing Sunday

JM and Boyfriend came and spent some time with me today...which always makes for a good day.  Somehow, JM sat on the computer while Boyfriend and I cooked for her...not real sure how she does that!  It's funny, for many years I lived a minimum of a 12 hour drive from the girls and didn't get to spend much time with them.  When I retired from my first career, I moved back here specifically to be near them (otherwise I'd still live where it's warm).  Now I live about 20 minutes from two of them and about 40 minutes from JM...and it's entirely to far!!!  I tried to get JM to move in with me and even offered to let Boyfriend set up a tent in the yard but she insists on being all grown up...what's up with that???

I think your offer lost some of its appeal with mention of the tent in the backyard.
I was referred by your adorable daughter! Glad I dropped by!

Hi Dad, congrats on the great start. Getting yourself a harem I reckon. Pop over and visit sometime, I have a couple of blogs but if you check out the story one, I wont tell JM

What a great post Dad...I guess it's different when you raise boys. I'm 50 and my son is 29. While I expected him to have kids someday I didn't envision 2 by time he was 21. So the tent idea went out the window...lol. And she is smart to allow you to cook for her!!! Daddy's girls!

@Jess....and a bathroom??? There are bushes in the yard!!!
@Tress...well it was like this....I was googling to find a lynx clutch for you for Christmas...and you know I don't type so well....and the next thing I know, I was at Mynx's blog....really, it was an accident !
