Picking cherries

We left on our trip with a stop in LA to visit with my Dad. This morning we went next door to the neighbors annd picked cherries for eating and for a fresh made cherry pie. Dad's wife Helen made a wonderful cherrrypie from the cherries we picked. Joe took photo,s of judas and I picking cherries together. Every time I have visited with my fathr in the summer I have picked cherries at the neighbors,it is a memory that I will always have. Oh yes, and we ate more than we picked. Helen even thought we might have to go back across the street to pick more but we made it even with 1/2 cup more than she needed.
We went to church with my father last night to a meeting where we listened to a wonderful presenter who told us about Dog tags for soldiers kids project. You can go to the website and read all about it. It is a fascinating story of a women who is helping out. She needs our help with donations she does this ALL for FREE every bit of it. she is from my dads area. And she needs our help. Please pass this on.
I get to spend Father's day with my Dad for the first time in years. It will be a good day for him and me. tomorrow night we hope to get on our flight, we are flying United and they say it may take a day or two to get back on schedule. I will let you know how it is going from the airport lounge. My father lives about one and half hours from the airport so we will go early to the airport and enjoy the lounge till we board about 10 pm. Hopefully we will sleep and then enjoy the rest of the trip. The flight will be 15 hours. I have my kindle and of course the movies on board. Sydney will be here soon. We are to arrive around 6 am Tuesday morning, but we leave on Sunday night and it is only 15 hour flight, well we all know time change. When we come home the best thing happens we gain a day. Always a good thing.
Till later. Hugs, Mary
