On the road...

With today being the first fathers day without my dad, I wanted a breakfast that he would have ate. In the extra you have good old fashioned biscuits and gravy, fried eggs and pancakes with Oregon marionberry jam. I won't be able to eat another carb for at least a week but oh so yummy...

The pancake reminded me of the third time I went to Alaska, this time with dad and mom. We had heard about a place that was known for attitude, quirkiness and good pancakes. When my dad tried to order two pancakes the waitress said no. The look on my dads face let alone a business saying no to just 2?  Well when the pancake came, it was the biggest thing I've ever seen - think large pizza pan... My dads eyes went very wide. It took him awhile but he ate the whole thing and was grateful not to have a second. 

A nice quiet Sunday morning. I'll be talking to my sister about our dad later in the day... Tomorrow after a doctors appointment, my sister and I will head to the bank with mom to make sure everything is all set up with her, head to the mission and donate my dads clothes and then out to hand over my dads ashes...  

Happy Fathers Day to all the human and critter dads....
