May I just take a moment today to exclaim "Sweet, sweet Blogger!" and do a Toyota jump? The time suck that shall heretofore be known as the WordPress Fiasco last night made me appreciate my home sweet home in the blogosphere. Never fear, I scheduled my 007 post for Monday and all is right with the world.
I also want to give a huge, happy shout-out to my Dad. I've mentioned him before here and here and here but my still-favorite way to honor him is the ultimate time travel for Father's Day.
This is Iowa, circa 1940. Isn't he cute? Love you, Dad. Wish we could be together.
Now, let's exercise our democratic freedoms, shall we? Vote in the sidebar for your favorite first line of a story inspired by this photobefore midnight CST Sunday. The winner will receive a DVD collection to be revealed on Monday. It's not really that it's a grand secret, but more than I fear its awesomeness in my mind might translate to yawns and an otherwise less than exuberant voter turnout. But free is free, right? Now you really want to know what it is, don't you?
Vote, vote, vote and if you see your Dad this weekend, remember what a blessing it is to be able to hug him.
