Random 5 Friday

I'm such a slacker. I've not blogged all week and now I have something like an art show lined up for you all when I find out it's RANDOM 5 FRIDAY and no one told me!

1. It is after 5 o'clock in the afternoon and there is still light outside! Besides that being exciting news, this sort of information always makes me think of my dad. He used to send me emails every day and usually the first email was about the status of the day. He'd give me the weather conditions, the temperature and sometimes the length of the day, especially at this time of the year.

I searched my email for some and I'm beginning to get upset, but here you go. I guess it's a bit therapeutic.

> Its been starting out in the 50s and low 60s, then getting up to 90
> last several days.  The weather personality on 10pm news said that was
> about over, as several cool fronts are coming this way from the far far north.

> Dad.

> >Its up to 50F now, was 47 when I was up
> > reeeeal early. I got up at 7:30 to stay because I was cold.

> >Hows it
> > > going in Iowa?  We got a little bit of rain this morning and
> > > cooler / dryer air.
> > > Dad.

2. OK. I had to stop.  

3. Tomorrow is the day my dad was born. He would have been 75. 

4. I am having a steak dinner tonight at home and now I feel like I have deserved the wine I'm going to pour!! :) 

5. I need to go buy tin foil. Do you still call it tin foil? It's not really tin. Was it ever tin or was it always aluminum? Aluminum was discovered in 1825, after all.

Sorry I fell down on the job and did not alert you that it was Random 5 Friday...

I have a letter from my mom that I have saved all these years...almost 18 yrs.

Steak dinner sounds yummy...

I don't know if it was ever tin foil...
