Plans: Audie’s parents…
AM Prayer: Sunday, we pray both to Sonne/Sunna, lighting a yellow candle (symbolic of the Sun):
Greetings to you Sonne, Lamp of Wodan/Odin: newly risen! Hail to you who has shown on all our ancestors, who shines on us, and who will shine on our decedents yet unborn. Share with us some of your light, your energy, your power, so that we might better fight our battles and attain our goals. SONNE/SUNNA HAIL!!

Advice on how to spend the day
AM Rune: Two Runes:
Outcome: What immediately came to mind was the reading on June 17th where I said:
Here is an example of a harvest of a wrong action” I am feeling a bit distanced from my faith. I opt to plant my ass in front of the tele or spend my time doing things with Audie. Things are a bit complicated now with classes, too. Doing things with Audie is just the product of nurturing a relationship. Planting myself in front of a tele choice that will need to change; well, after the World Cup. Whatever the case, my faith is equally important, if not more important than many things in my live. The problem is achieving the proper harvest for it. I take my responsibilities seriously and must maintain a certain amount of studies for it. Oh sure, I go out to the Hof every day, but sometimes even those become hollow words. I must once again be in search of that for which I hunger and desire.
I have yet to deal with this. There has been no movement. I am thinking this is my reminder!
OMGs the heat is on!
WOW! Major Astro’s obit was in the paper today: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/kansas/obituary.aspx?n=tom-b-leahy&pid=143635483&fhid=4861
He was one of my heroes growing up. I also waited on him as a customer at McDs. I know he frustrated the hel out of his wife, and if I remember correctly, at one time he was a drunk. All that aside, Major Astro was my television hero at a time when my father was dieing with MS; because of that he was pretty much an absent father, but I could count on Major Astro being on the tele every day after school at 3:30. He would tell me, ‘…everything is A-ok and all systems are go. Happy orbits boys and girls; bye, I’ll see you tomorrow”.
I spent the money I made yesterday for doing the wedding. I got a complete set of under, a pair of cargo-shorts and a book-bag! Shot the whole works except for a couple of bucks. Happy Father’s Day to me!
We went to Audie’s parent’s house for Father’s Day. I only get along marginally with them. There hasn’t been much movement on that; neither has there really been an effort to rectify it. Luckily, her sister was in from Arkansas and in certain ways became a buffer for me.
Today’s World Cup Matches http://www.fifa.com/
Slovakia 0:2 Paraguay
Italy 1:1 New Zealand (Wooooooooow…)
Brazil 3:1 Ivory Coast
Finished back yard close to sunset; 90F still kicked my ass…
Father’s Day has never really meant much to me. I never had much of a relationship with my father because, as previously mentioned, he had MS for as long as this 5-yr old could remember. At the same time I was robbed of being a father by my ex-wife; so Father’s Day is a bit difficult.. I doubt that much will ever change about that for me. It probably always will remain as my failed harvest with little movement.
PM Prayer: Ostara/Idun:
Ostara/Idun, keeper of the golden apples of youth, keep us young inside. When we are starving for laughter, hungry for the lightness that comes with having few years on our shoulders, slip us one of those gleaming fruits that we may see the world through youthful eyes. Let springtime be in our steps, love in our hearts and a song on our lips. Change us to the core! Fill us with optimism and dreams for the future. HAIL OSTARA/IDUN!!!
