All Aboard the Father's Day Express
Several men from Silverado Valley Ranch enjoyed an outing to the Grapevine Depot where they boarded an excursion train. The return trip lasted about an hour and included a trip to the snack bar. Back at the Grapevine Depot, a visit was made to the glassblowing and blacksmith shops. After their return from the train trip, a Father's Day Barbecue was prepared for all the men of Silverado Valley Ranch.
In honor of Father's Day, our Silverado Valley Ranch Poetry Club wrote a poem.
Jump in the pool or a round of golf to play,
Backyard cooking on the grill. It is Father's Day!
When I think of my daddy and the power,
I want to give him a fresh, young flower.
I was close to my dad, I loved him so much,
He would never desert me or stay out of touch.
He was a good Baptist and so sweet to me,
He gave me a nickname, I was called Peewee.
Your dad may still be living, maybe he's not,
Sadness at his loss overwhelms me a lot.
I wish he was here, but everything ends,
He is in heaven with his other friends.
Now I am blessed because I am the dad,
Being a father has made me so glad!
