Happy Fathers' Day, Grandad!


We wanna wish our grandad (and all of the rest of the dads in the blogosphere) a furry happy Fathers' Day!

Mom took this photo of Grandad two years ago when she entered him in the "Dad's Grungy Grill" contest sponsored by Red Robin Restaurants.

There was one grand prize winner and then state winners in every state where there are Red Robin Restaurants.

Mom won for California.

Grandad got a $50.00 Red Robin gift card and a $250.00 gift card for Home Depot where he was supposed to buy a new gas grill. Don't tell, but Grandad bought Grandma a brand new Moen kitchen faucet instead.

Red Robin Corporate sent Mom a really nice letter. She framed it along with the little folder that the gift cards came in AND her winning photo.

Since Mom doesn't tend to win stuff, she was furry proud that her photo and caption ("Dad FINALLY washed his grungy grill, AND it SHRUNK!") were selected as one of the best entries.

That was a cool caption for that photo. When we first saw the grill, we thought that it looked a little strange. We thought that your granddad might have burned his foot! Belated congratulations to your mom, and happy father's day to your grandad.

Wow Daisymae! You have a famous grandpa and a pretty wonderful mom for entering him in that contest. That's a very cool picture of your grandpa...when I first saw it I thought maybe he was BBQing his shoe. Ha ha ha...that would taste funky.
