Oh well. 12 hour day today and then packing tonight hopefully!
Well, at least you had a nice time anyway

When are you leaving anyway? I'm sure there is plenty of time. We only just booked our rental car yesterday.

I just think Father's Day, is a bit shit when all the deals are about getting tools to make more crap and to BBQ your own food, compared to all the dinners out and fun things for Mother's Day.

I work until 12 tomorrow. We will then drive to daughters in Houston about 2pm. Leaving our car there and then we have a shuttle picking us up at 4.30 and flight is at 8pm.

If I ever get out of this meeting then I can pack

Talking about food I just found out that my nieces wedding reception on Saturday is going to be fish and chips from a van and Mr Whippy ice cream from another van.
