There’s something about waking up early for work on a Friday morning that doesn’t bother me at all. Probably just the simple fact that it’s Friday and my weekend is so close to finally being here! Today looks to be relatively cool compared to the rest of this week this a forecasted high temperature of just 84 in Odessa. If the daybreak from sweltering temps bothers you then don’t worry, because it’s supposed to warm up for the rest of the weekend.

Well in case you’ve been living under some kind of large rock shaped structure then you should know that Father’s Day is quickly approaching. If you are a rock dweller then let me tell you Father’s Day is Sunday June 16th this year, so don’t forget! Shopping for Dad’s can be very tough because they always say they already have everything they need, including that pair of pants that appears to be twenty years old! Well I’m sure that all the Fathers out there deserve something nice this year. So even if you have to search high and low for your Pops, it’ll be worth it.

Even if your Dad is the hardest person in the universe to shop for, that doesn’t mean finding a gift has to be difficult. Don’t bother buying him the same old crap as last year from the big box mega store, just be original! Sometimes the best place to find a unique gift is at a local garage sale.
