Gotta love those four day weekends

Our son arrived home from college just the other day, so much like a man I just had to say, son I'm proud of you can you sit for awhile? He said, "I'd love to dad." So he did.Thanksgiving, working Suduko 2006
Ryan joined us Wednesday and stayed til Saturday evening. We had a great time visiting, eating, and laughing. His Isuzu Rodeo was giving him problems. The drivers side front blinker light didn't work, nor did the passenger side rear blinker light. The tail lights were out and the instrument panel lights were kaput too. We pulled his car into the garage and started replacing bulbs. It was a good time together and we found that his vehicle had blown a fuse and this was the problem with the instrument lights and tail lights. A twofer you might say. Sweet! Replacing the blown bulbs was a simple matter too. All went well and now he is street legal again! (It was nice to be his hero again!)
Spent about an hour in the hot tub Friday night after I got home from the chili feed. Ryan is starting to open up a bit more. Must be that growing process I heard about. You know, where they leave the nest, find out that lifes not all peaches and cream and all of a sudden, mom and dad ain't so dumb anymore. We tossed the football around a bit before he left! It was almost like old times, except he now throws harder than me and my arm gets sore. Oh, the times, they are a' changin'!
Started taking the interior doors apart in the house. It's time they got a face lift. A few have nice large holes in them and need to be "fix alled." And a fresh coat of paint is in order. I'm excited by how it's going to change the overall look and complexion of our home. Something about making it warmer and cozier! :)
The four days off from work was great. Good friends, family and food!
