Saw this sign after I dropped my car off for service and it made me chuckle. Why yes it is. Once you say "I do" and have kids then it becomes the longest "Sentence". Life with out parole. Even if you get divorced the tie to your ex is there the rest of your life. My joke I tell is there is more crying at a wedding than at funeral. At a wedding the sentence is just beggining at a funeral it is over.

Just a short drive East of Fort Wayne there as a seen that looks like something you might have seen out West a few years ago. Along highway 30 East of New Haven there is a wind farm in place. There are hundreds of these giant windmills silently turning to generate power. I took these photographs one afternoon on my way home from Decatur. My kids and I noticed them on our family vacation back in June to Deshler Ohio. I had seen the giant blades on flat bed trucks going down 469, but didn't know exactly what it was I was looking at. It is possible on a clear day to see these from the intersection of Highway 30 and 469 as you drive on 469. The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette had an article on these that can be seen by clicking here. I personally don't like these giant machines because the block out the natural beauty of the land. One of my favorite parts of going out rail fanning is being out in the country where I can enjoy nature.

Eariler in the summer I decided that I would build a platform for my cats to sit on behind my couch so they could look out the Window when they wanted. I have three indoor cats and they had never had a place to look out. My son Dakota and I one Sunday afternoon decided it was time to build it. It was one of those father son type things that we could do together. From time to time when I come home from work I see one to three cats sitting on it at any given time. Today I am home on Vacation and Fuzzy (AKA Momma Kitty) was laying all streched out in front of the window. Needless to say the things we do for our kids and for our pets.

Happy Fathers Day to all the dad's out there!
Today was a good fathers day for me. A couple of weeks ago I decided to buy a grill so that we could grill out from time to time. So this morning when my ten year old son got up he went out side for a while and when he came back in he announced that he had cleaned the grill. I guess that was his way of saying "I want to grill out this afternoon". So I made the trip to the grocery store and bought some hamburger meat and hot dogs.
Around 4:3opm today I started the fire in the charcoal grill. First off up until two weeks ago I had never grilled using a charcoal grill. The only grill I had ever used was electric. This being my third attempt at grilling on a charcoal grill I hoped I got it right this time. The food so far was just okay. After waiting about a 1/2 hour or a little more I finally put the food on to grill. As soon as I put on the hamburgers I knew it was going to turn out better this time. The food was good and I even melted some cheese on the hamburgers when they were done so we actually had bacon cheese burgers and hotdogs. My seven year old daughter doesn't seem to like food from the grill, but we had a good day and it was a GREAT fathers day.
