The Father's Day do-it-yourself gift
Original post made by Douglas Kendall on Jun 15, 2009
and daughter #2 struggling to assemble a swinging outdoor chair/hammock thing from WalMart, that is to be my Father's Day present.
Since I showed no sign of eagerness to rescue them from this onerous task, and instead relaxed and read nearby (though out of 'accidental' throwing range of tools), enjoying a refreshing drink, they refused to speak to me until the project was completed.
After that, proud of their completion, they magnanimously began speaking to me again, in order to declare the completion of said superlative creation (upon which I rocked while continuing my reading until the sun sank below the Pleasanton Ridge, and the distraction of the growing evening chill drove me indoors).
However, I won the subsequent Scrabble game, and now they aren't
speaking to be again at least not with any words over 7 letters.
(And the chills seems to have followed me indoors!)

Douglas, I'm curious, why would you think anyone cares?

Excuse me, that was the wife #2 and the daughter # what?

And Douglas, what is the point of this posting... some superiority you have a need for?
I am happy they made an attempt to get out there.
Can you cook? I would like to see your technical skills on this topic.
