Toys for the Boys
My family got together this weekend and Saturday night was dedicated to the men. We celebrated Father's Day and an early birthday for Popi. We had a nice prime rib supper with grilled vegetables, green beans, rolls, watermelon and Popi's favorite cake, chocolate mint cake. Then we went downstairs for the official opening of the presents. But earlier in the day the fellows started piling up their new toys. It started when Uncle B bought a new toy for himself, which isn't officially a Father's Day present, but will be remembered as such for quid pro quo purposes :)

Was he excited about it? Sometimes it's hard to tell with him...

Popi went and bought himself a used edger that came alive with a little bit of rehabilitation. He then proceeded to make an awesome mess of the yard.

For an actual birthday present Popi got a nice new comfy computer chair from Uncle B. He also got a couple of shirts, lots of meat for the freezer, gift certificates for restaurants and his favorite candies.

And all M got was this lousy T-shirt.

...and three polo shirts, a book to share with Emma, Melton's beef jerky, four sirloin steaks, a 6-pack of Guinness Draught and a 6-pack of Yuengling Black and Tan.
