Wishing he were here

Kathleen and I are in Paris, having just led a tour group from AAA Signatours travel here to experience Paris as we did when she attended Le Cordon Bleu. Last year my dad, his wife, and his good friends Eric and Joan from England were to join us on our research trip to Paris. My dad was disappointed they couldn't make it then and we were all hoping he would be here with us now.

He is here in my heart. Here's one for you, Floyd!

Thanks to everyone who raised a pint to my dear ol' dad in May. I'm sure it meant a lot to him and certainly did to all of us wishing he was still with us to make us laugh and sing.

Friends of Floyd festivities

Toast Floyd every Tuesday in May

Thanks to all those that raised your glasses the last two Tuesdays in a toast, "One for Floyd." This Tuesday, call a friend, meet them for a pint, and raise one in his honor.
Next round...

May 20th
Spokane, at The 7th Rail or The Hi Neighbor
Seattle, at The Deluxe Bar & Grill
Manchester UK, at The Chapel House
Anna Maria Island, Florida, at Bortell's
Tampa, Florida, at Mad Dogs & Englishmen
London, UK, at The Queen's Arms
Fort Worth, Texas, at The Flying Saucer

Post your comments, add pub locations. Together we'll "have one for Floyd!"


Celebration... what's on tap

After talking to my dad's most loved friends (which is all of you, but I don't have all your numbers), we came to the conclusion to celebrate his life doing what Floyd enjoyed most. Gather all his friends around a campfire, water, boats, food, and yes - a few beers too - and just have a good time.

But like all good things, we have to wait until summer for the party.


An outdoor gathering of Floyd's friends


Late June or early July on a Sunday or Saturday
(I want to make sure y'all can be there, and to give you time to plan)


An outdoor setting. Spokane area, probaby north Idaho on the lakes he loved so much

Post your comments to this entry! Let me know dates you are out-of-town or post preferred spots. Floyd wants you there in the fun and family friendly environment he would love.
