Fathers Day is almost here so I thought I would frame this post with Lew in mind... his "Likes", that is. First off?
The Day tends to start off at the Cup. However, this is a hard choice ... Lew does split his time with the many early morning places like the Danish Mill and KK's... and then there's Holiday Inn.
Summer is more than blooming flowers and haunting sunsets ... Summer is about the choices! While each gathering place has its own personality, they all offer fellowship ... camaraderie!
Lots of conversation happens in these places ... some topics veer into areas which Lew really cares about ...
Water? Boats? Oh my goodness, yes. That would be a definite "Like", yes. Here's to all the folks who have this habit.
Living in a town surrounded by water does humor this addiction ... am thinking Lew is not the only person feeling pretty fortunate.
This leads to another happening coming up on Friday. (The Bulletin Board at the Red Cup is a font of information and not to be missed.) See note above. The whitefish is the best and talk about meeting your neighbors!
Water is important to Lew but so is Nature on land, especially when he is able to spend time with his son, Doug. Father & son ... a good thing? Yup! Father proud of son's artistic talent ... Yup! Okay, so this is not on the Island ... but we are heading into a time when lots of relatives will be visiting their kin here ... it doesn't matter exactly where events like this happen, it's just great when it does ... enjoy it!
So when Doug contributed a painting to one of his Dad's other "Likes" - the Art and Nature Center - that was pretty special. Family is about giving, volunteering, caring. We hope that our children develop those characteristics and it feels pretty good when we see it occur.
The Canvas Quilt continues ... check it out at the ANC. There was much volunteering to make this project happen. The ANC is indebted to all who contributed/are contributing to this 150+paintings project!
Back to living on the Water, when is Lew the happiest? When he is headed back to the Island! His likes: fellowship, family, and places to enjoy both. Seems that there may be more than a few Dads who feel the same way.
Happy Fathers Day from Washington Island!
til next time ...
