I hope everyone had a great father's day yesterday. Here are some pic's from Curt's day. We took him out to breakfast at the diner across town. He likes it better than the one closer to us. Yes, we are in North Jersey, there are 5 diners within 5 miles of us. Curt is very difficult to shop for. He has weird interests that are hard to buy for, and I hate giving him GC's. So the other day in Borders I came up with the perfect plan. there is a book of breweries in NJ. I bought him the book.
One of the breweries listed (way down in South jersey) is Flying Fish. I've had their beer before good stuff. So I went to the liquor store and got 2 bottles of their inaugural series of NJ beers, based on the exits of the turnpike ( in NJ it is all about what exit) It is called exit 4, where the brewery is.
I also gave him an IOU for a weekend in Cherry Hill at the (Hilton I think) since their tours are from 1 to 4 on Saturdays for the middle of August. (our weekends are kinda full until then).
Awesome right!! I think it is a great gift for Curt.
Here as a PS is a pic from my Dancing With the Stars group on Ravelry. Each player was assigned one of the stars, and everyone had to send a 15 package to the person who got the winner. I had Ty Murray, and I was very proud of him for making it to the semi finals, since really the man is an awesome bull rider and has a cute grin, but no dancing talent whatsoever! So the winner received her package yesterday and I can now post this pic:
