Father’s Day to Remember

Let me start by saying first and most importantly, I had a great Father’s Day this year.  It had all the ingredients for a great day: a little league baseball including the Little Man as the star of the day played on a beautiful sunny day in Central Park, excellent couch time watching Rory McIlroy stomp everyone in the US Open and a great home cooked meal that was prepared entirely by people other than me.  One of my favorite parts of such a great day is to download the photos and relive the great moments of the day in our pictures. 

I’m sorry, I didn’t catch that.  What did you say?  No memory card in the camera???  Who the heck is responsible for checking the camera?  Nothing more basic than a memory card in the camera.  Heads will roll on this one.  Oh, wait a second, that’s me, Mr. Technology, the Home IT Department, the man with the plan.  Ooops.

We’ll just have to do it the old fashioned way on this one and actually remember the day, rather than broadcasting it to every corner of the globe on the internet.  A blunder best saved for my Father’s Day…
