Skyping and Cookies . . .

On what might be our last nice morning for a few days before the rainy weather sets in, we sat outside with our coffee, muffins, Mister, and Mister’s little buddy, Nick, for a while.

Nick and I spent most of the time comparing notes on our new Galaxy S5’s, figuring how to turn some stuff on and other stuff off.

And the more we learn about the S5, the more we need to learn.

Brandi called about 11 to wish me a Happy Father’s Day, and set up a time for us to Skype, so after a nice lazy afternoon, we Skyped with Landon, Brandi, and Lowell for a while about 4:30. Landon was mostly occupied with playing in the backyard,

especially on his water slide.

He’s growing so big so fast that we can’t wait to see him in August for his 4th birthday. Really looking forward to it.

About 1pm our son Chris called with Father’s Day greetings and broke the news that he’s got a new toy.

He said all he needs now is a bandana and a pony tail. Not sure what make bike it is because the photo’s not that clear, but it kind of looks like a Yamaha logo.

For dinner tonight, we combined leftovers from Famous Dave’s BBQ, Wings Etc., South Side Soda Shop, and Mancino’s Pizza. A real feast, and we’ve still got some Mancino’s pizza and cheesy bread for tomorrow night.

Then we’ll have to start eating out again so we can stock up on more leftovers.

And to top off a really nice day, later this evening, Nick showed up with a still-warm batch of Miss Terry’s famous oatmeal raisin cookies.
