Andy! It was a close race this year but once again, Andy managed to edge out the competition going into overtime this month with two sick kids, a wife with a bad knee, a vomiting cat, and a crazy dog. This past weekend was Andy’s “best Father’s Day ever” because unlike my usual habit of running around trying to get the kids to make something for Father’s Day the very day of, I actually planned all of our gifts out in advance.
The first gift you see is this beautiful, handcrafted trophy. It was made of two plastic cups, a block of wood, and two pieces of styrofoam for the handles. There’s a long nail drilled in the middle of the cup all the way to the wood chunk and thumb tacks holding the handles to the cups. Nothing too interesting.
But once the glue dries, you take off the tape and spray paint it gold…
And it is transformed into a beautiful goblet good enough to grace the tables of kings or superstar rappers. To top it off, there were tickets to The Great Austin Beer Festival from my sister, Kim. He is going to go with his beer brewing buddy, Josef, this weekend. For the price of the tickets, they get free 4 oz samples from over 40 breweries that will be there. Now that I think about it, maybe we should have gotten him a bus pass too.
