Father’s Day 2011 (170/365)

2011 06 19 IMG_2805wIf your dad is anything like mine, then you have no clue what to buy him for Father's Day. The only Father's Day tradition in my family is the annual conversation he and I have where I say, "Hey, Dad, what do you want for Father's Day this year?" and he says, "Nothing." Then I ask my mom what I should get him and she says, "He likes sandalwood soap, dangly jewelry and Chanel No 5 perfume."

Michael Showalter (born June 17, 1970) is an American comedian, actor, writer, and director.

PLACE:  MY Garage Museum & Retail Store. Effingham, IL
SUBJCT: Modified Street Runner Herbie from the 2005 movie

HH wanted to go to the MY Garage Museum for Father’s Day.  So we did.  He was more interested in the Corvette portion of the museum than the smaller VW side – but personally, I liked seeing Herbie the best.  HH procured some floor mats for his girlfriend Corvette and a book – the Corvette Bible.  We ate lunch at a Lone Star Steakhouse, then headed toward his second destination.  After several detours due to some flood water issues:

we stopped at the Marcoot Jersey Creamery and tasted and purchased several cheeses.  I talked HH into walking to the barns even though we were warned that it might be somewhat “mucky” due to the rains - I promised to remove my shoes before re-entering the ‘Vette if they got muddy – wait! - isn’t that why he bought the floor mats?  A little anal about that car, aren’t we my dear? *wink*  I’m glad we went to the barn…I was able to see many Jersey calves like this one:

Awwww – how sweet!  And because I love my husband, I made sure no mud was tracked into the car.  Happy Father’s Day honey!
