42 years ago, I watched the first moon landing. Today, I am sitting in my chair, in my garden, using my cell phone to write this message, so my friends and adult sons can read this. Science is a wonderful thing.

Teenage mutant ninja Coneflowers

One of my coneflower plants has several mutated flower buds on it. I didn't think anything would come of them but it looks like it's gonna give blooming a shot.

More flowers from the garden. This time I used Photobucket's snapbucket app on my phone.

What is the deal with this cat? It's one of the neighborhood feral cats that often spends the hot part of the day in my garden. The past couple of days, it has been sitting on my porch staring at the door, or sitting nearby staring at me when I am outside.

Accidental decor

I didn't plan this but I think Luna is the perfect finishing touch to this window scene.

Father's Day

This is my family's first Father's Day without our Dad and we are missing him very much. Not a day goes by that we don't think about him and today, I wish I could have gotten the day off work so I could spend it with him in spirit. I'm thinking of you Dad.

On a lighter note, I'm remembering his last full sentence to me in the hospital just hours before he passed, he said: "aww f#ck this sh*t!"

If you are a parent and you smoke, please stop for your kids sake. Watching your father fight lung cancer is to difficult to imagine.
