Father’s Day, Turf Wars, and #AmWatching

Hope all you dads out there had a relaxing Father’s Day weekend! Hubby had a fabulous one. Our oldest son called Thursday to let us know he’d be coming for the weekend – an unexpected and very welcome surprise. The youngest son who just moved to Austin arranged to Facetime hubby Saturday so they could smoke a cigar together and discuss our son’s first week in his new city. The rest of the afternoon was spent with friends lounging around in their pool with our beverages of choice and eating grilled pizzas. Sunday was about watching the US Open (hubby’s a big golfer) and grilling out burgers topped with crisp, thick bacon and avocados before our oldest son left. Hard to beat a weekend like that.

Our oldest son’s cat, Sora, came with him – much to Bond’s usual chagrin. Whenever she’s here, she immediately takes over his cat tower and has the audacity to ignore his threats. She refuses to bend the knee. and is all about girl power. Bond resigned himself to spending most of the weekend on the screened porch pouting, a place Sora doesn’t usually grace with her presence. The humidity does horrible things to her sleek fur.

Last night I finally got around to watching Army of the Dead on Netflix. If you’re a zombie fan, it’s two and a half hours well spent. After a zombie invasion, Las Vegas has been walled off and will soon be nuked. Dave Bautista’s (Guardians of the Galaxy) team has been hired to enter the city and steal millions of dollars from a casino before the bomb is dropped. I correctly predicted which team member would go down first and spent most of the movie talking to the characters and telling them what to do. After watching The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, and plenty of other zombie movies over the past decade, I feel I’m adequately qualified to offer advice. The ending left the door open for a sequel, and I’d definitely watch it.

Have a great week!

  1. Sounds like you guys had a nice Father’s Day. The cats are so funny. They have such personalities, don’t they? Each one is different. 😆 I’ll have to check out that series, Teri. We just finished up with the second and final season of Selena. Can’t wait for some of our favorites to release this year. 👍

    Have a great week!

      1. Thanks. He was and a great guy too. There were two more kids after that picture. I always liked that one. He looked so proud of his little family. One of the last things he said to me was that he was so proud of all of us. xo


  2. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! And female cats never bend at the knee. My girls were home with their cats and my oldest’s female cat refuses to respect my female cats wishes for space. It also makes for an interesting visit ❤️

  3. I also watched “Army of the Dead” over the weekend. I was entertained for the most part. And I learned a valuable life lesson: If I ever go into a city populated by zombies and I have to get out before a nuclear missile strikes the city, I should *not* take the time to chat with my daughter and buddies about relationship issues. Those conversations were big eye-rollers for me.

    Sounds like a great weekend, and a wonderful Fathers’ Day for your hubby. I always have to chuckle at the Bond vs Sora situation, though I do also sort of feel sorry for Bond.

  5. What a wonderful surprise to have your oldest son and his cat to visit. Glag to hear your youngest son did well on his job the first week in Austin. Your Father’s day weekend with your hubby sounds wonderful. I’m not a zombie fan but my hubby watched the zombie movies the last two nights. I’m here in Portland Oregon to visit my daughter’s family and spend time with my two granddaughters. Hubby stays home because we have some venovation going on.

    1. We’re just the opposite – my hubby isn’t a zombie fan so I always watch the movies alone. Hope you’re having a wonderful time visiting with your family, Miriam. Spoil those granddaughters!


      1. I think I did a little, Teri. My three-and-a-half is a book worm. We read her as much as we could during the day but only two books for bedtime. But when grandma reads, she could pick three to five books! The one-year-old could have more crackers than normally allowed!

  6. Teri, that sounds like some excellent food. Poor Bond… I guess if sulking was the worst of it, then they got along pretty well. Comparatively. 🐱
    I got a kick out of the idea of you talking to and advising the movie characters. Thanks for these smiles. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Our weekend was fantastic – Bond’s not so much, lol. They mostly try to avoid each other, but then there’s the occasional chase through the house. I think they take turns.
