Father's Day is coming up dear reader. As many of you know, it is VERY hard to find dad the perfect gift under $100. How many ties, or soaps on a rope can one man receive as a father? A few days ago, my sister said that mom's are more sentimental and easier to please than men are. She reasoned that a mom would be thrilled to get a bunch of flowers, it doesn't have to be her favorite flower. Would it do to give a man just any piece of sporting equipment? Not likely. Not that many guys like ALL sports but only a select few. Let's face it, men like things that have big price tags. Cars, boats, good tickets to sporting events, tools, T.V.'s or the latest electronic gadget. But is that really true? I like to think that the classic Cosby Show Father's Day episode goes a long way in dispelling the assumption, that expensive gifts are better than ones from the heart. And so, on that note, here is what I came up with for my eldest son to give his dad.
After we finished the brick foundation, it looked so good that I've since decided to con-tinue my paving efforts, that way we will gain more usable porch floor area. But that's a project and post for another day. Tim and I only had to cut a few bricks to fit, which was a blessing because the brick set we have doesn't do it's job very well. I think only one brick actually was trimmed successfully without breaking in half. Not wanting to waste any bricks, I simply put the broken bricks toward the back, near the house. We then filled in the cracks with paver locking sand. Now the bricks look like they've been there for years!
Happy Father's Day my love, you're simply the best!
