Happy Father's Day

Around here father’s day, or alternatively Jim’s birthday, means two things: bagels with lox and champagne. Jim really gets the treatment. He’s allowed to sleep in, the kids start by bringing him, first coffee and then the paper. We leave him to get his wits together and we assemble a spread of bagels, cream cheese, onions, capers, tomatoes, fruit, O.J. This is all placed on china, then on a tray and presented to him as he lounges in bed. Then we all climb in for a bedroom picnic. Jim enjoys champagne and the kids sip sparkling apple cider out of champagne glasses.
