This morning I sit here typing as I sip from my new Minion mug. My box of Minion stuff arrived yesterday. I now have a full sized Bob, a Bob nightlight that is light sensitive (turns itself off during the day and on at night unless I switch the light on), my new Kevin mug and a Minion towel (it is covered in happy Minions). It cheered me up quite a bit. This is actually my second Minion mug. One of my associates got me a nice big one for Christmas one year.
Today is Father’s Day here in the U.S. I don’t know if I will be able to talk to Dad or not this afternoon. He has taken another turn for the worse. This time it has started with his tinnitus. It is loud enough that he is having problems thinking. When he sent me the email there were misspellings. Which concerns me. The last time his spelling started going bad he had a psychotic episode. I will try to give him a call regardless.
I am getting Chris two t shirts that he wanted for Father’s Day. He is working again so we will celebrate tomorrow. Tomorrow is also the Summer Solstice. Holy cow… Or maybe I should say crow. I can hear this loud cawing coming from our back yard. It has to be just on the other side of the fence! Ok… I went to look. I found the tree it is in (apparently with a bunch of other birds as I spooked some when I came out) but the leaves on the tree are hiding it. Once in a while there is an answering caw from the East.
I got a bit of sad news the other day that was confirmed today be email. My favorite Magic Hat No. 9 will no longer be made in Vermont. They are closing down the plant. I guess they are moving to their parent company in New York and opening a plant. I didn’t know that Magic Hat had had to sell themselves to stay afloat. They had always touted themselves as being owned by the employees. The whole situation makes me sad. I am sensing the end of an era for me. I wonder how much longer they will last. Damn damn damn.
Well I am going to wrap this up. I will share a photo of my Minion stuff and a cool shot I got last night of a bird on our mailbox. I’m pretty happy with how the bird on the mailbox came out. I hope you have a great day. Thanks for reading and stay safe!
