We called up our dads and wished them Happy Father’s Day…on opposite ends of the country. I’m happy Amazon.com delivered my dad’s gift of smoked salmon and gourmet seafood spreads. As always, I wish we could be with our families on these holidays. It’s nice to hear their voices and catch-up on family gossip.
This afternoon, when Mark went out to pick-up Daisy from Day Care, I went on a secret mission for my puppy.
As Mark headed back home, he saw my car getting on the highway. I suppose Topeka’s a small town afterall. I finally saw Mark and Daisy in my review mirror. So I sped through the speed bumps at our apartment complex and raced them back to our home.
Daisy asked me to pick up some Dirt and Worms from Sheridan’s Custard. She wanted to share one of her outdoor pleasures with her puppy daddy. I told her that Mark would probably get sick on REAL dirt and worms. So, she agreed to the vanilla custard pie with crushed oreo cookies and gummy worms.
It was about 90 degrees outside. That’s pefect weather for a frozen custard pie. Of course, mixing Sheridan’s creamy vanilla custard with oreo cookies was an obvious combination. But the gummy worm toppings was a delightful, fruity surprise.
I know some day we’ll have real human babies and we’ll go on that next rollercoaster adventure people like to call parenthood. But for now, Daisy’s our bundle of joy and Mark’s a wonderful puppy daddy.
