ARE YOU READY FOR FATHER'S DAY? A REALLY COOL IDEA AND A FREEBIE!

>> Sunday, June 14, 2009

Greetings all!

It's been a rather SLOW weekend for me and my computer usage has been intermittent since my birthday on Thursday! Last I posted I had a surprise visit from my two oldest boys and my grandson, Kaleb. Photos are still on the camera as I've been diligently working on thanking everyone for my birthday wishes on Facebook and Geni and, of course, y'all right here on my blog!

I think I have finally figured out how I can reply to comments on my blog, but not quite sure it is working! I was feeding all of my different e-mail addresses into Windows Live Mail on my older computer and I was NEVER able to reply to my gmail for some strange reason! Anyhoo, on my new computer I have two gmail accounts set up, one for my blog comments and one for you to contact me if you have any questions, shares, etc.

So, as I have it figured, if you post a comment and use your e-mail address, I should be able to reply when I have the opportunity to do so! Sometimes it is virtually impossible to reply to every single one everyday, otherwise, I'd not have time to create!!! LOL! I hope y'all don't mind that I address you here and that you know my appreciation is HEARTFELT no matter how it is expressed! Y'all are AMAZING and we are all sharing the same passion for preserving our family heritage!

FATHER'S DAY!!! What are you doing to celebrate the MEN in your lives??? Do y'all gather for a SPECIAL celebration? Dinner? Picnic? If you are MILES away from your fathers, grandfathers and even some of your DH's, are you mailing cards and goodies? What kind of goodies do you send off and what have you found to be the BEST method of delivery that is, perhaps, cost effective and good with timing?

Robert's family tries to come up with unique ideas each year for Poppa according to things that HE enjoys! A few years ago we all went out on a fishing boat in the Monterey Bay as Poppa LOVES to fish and when he was living here in Copper, he and Robert would take his boat out on our BEAUTIFUL Lake Tulloch on occasion! Anyhoo, Robert and I both ended up spending most of our time laying down in the cabin due to sea-sickness! I was raised on the water and boats as my own father was an avid fisherman and ALWAYS had a boat or boats docked somewhere on the San Francisco Bay for a fishing trip when time allowed. Never bothered me as a kid, but for some reason the fumes from the motor did me in and that is all she wrote!

This year, they are organizing a tour of the Budweiser plant in Fairfield! Robert and I will not be able to make it this year as he will be spending Father's Day with his boys, but Poppa has been a Bud man since his Navy days LONG ago so in trying to find something that he would enjoy and that would have some special meaning, they came up with a tour!!! Pretty cool I think!

I have a CUTE, CUTE, CUTE idea to share with you that I found via a Tweet on Twitter this morning. Below is the image and by clicking the image, you will be transported to the site, Bakerella, for complete instructions on how to recreate these AWESOME replicas of some favorites of MOST of our guys!!! Although referred to as a Happy Meal, it could be any NUMBER on the menu board!!! Please let me know if you try this and I'd even LOVE to see a photo of your results if you do!!! How MUCH fun, eh?

Cupcake Buns + Brownie Burgers + Cookie Fries = One Happy Meal!

And, for a SPECIAL freebie this evening and in time for Father's Day, my dear, SWEET friend, Carole, has once again shared some nifty cards with me to share with y'all!!! Carole wished to show us yet another FABULOUS use of a "scrapatit" in placing it on the front of a card and turning it into a PHOTO CARD! Pretty cool, eh? Thank you once again Ms. Carole!!! AWESOME! Carole has used pieces from my contribution to the June Mega Blog Train, *My Favorite Guy*!

Wishing you ALL a MAGNIFICENT week ahead and please, if you have a moment, I would REALLY love to hear what you have up your sleeves for Father's Day!

Love atcha,
Linda :-D

P.S. Still working on our PARTY kit ... stay-tuned!!!
