Don’t have much blogging time this AM, but Father’s day was a lot of fun. Stepson John, wife Julie came over from the East Bay: first stop was brunch at Mike’s Cafe, in Ladera, which was excellent BTW. Their American-style omelettes, with innovative ingredients, are killer, BTW.
Gift of the day may well have been this SF Giants Chef hat which sweet spouse Linda somehow snagged for me (the hats were a promotion at a game a couple of weeks ago). How Ms. Hubbard managed to snag one of these remains a mystery, but the sight of me wearing it managed to amuse nearly everyone in Mike’s.
Julie gave me a bottle of olive oil infused with garlic and basil – perfect for summer vinaigrettes. Yum! John bought me a CD – and nailed my musical tastes as usual – ZZ Top’s Greatest Hits. Heh… Sharp-dressed Man and all.
We also played cards – something Linda and the kids like – but not high on my list. I’m usually a disaster when it comes to card games, but I somehow managed to come out on top of a game called Phase 10. We also have a new 20″ Apple Cinema Display to expand the gulker.com screen real estate…
