Out of the Blue

Well, happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. And just to emphasize the importance of fatherhood, the occasion falls on the longest day of the year. Well, that's not actually true. Today will be 24 hours just like yesterday and tomorrow. But it is the summer solstice, so we will get a few more moments of daylight today than any other day this year. This also means today is the first day of summer. The weather around here is certainly living up to that, and I hope it's equally lovely wherever you are. So there it is. Happy Father's Day. Happy summer. And if your dad's around, don't forget to give him a call. Enjoy!
