It was a beautiful evening. I had just finished two extended overtime shifts, and the Mother of Five was going to be attending one of #4 of 5’s out of town softball games.
Since I had about an hour or so to spare (which is pretty unusual) I emailed my parents and asked them if they were going to be home that evening. I mentioned that it had been a while since I had been over to see them and wanted to just stop by and shoot the breeze for a bit. They replied that they were going to be home.
So, I stopped by.
There was no plan, no agenda, and no script.
I simply enjoyed a cold beer, a cigar, and the company of my parents on their deck.
It was delightful!
Best leisure hour I have had in a while!
Thanks mom and dad!
