The Lunatic Is On the Grass...

Pops is the HUGEST Pink Floyd fan on the planet. Me? I run a close second, if not neck-in-neck for the title. But this is HIS day, the Annual "Pink Floyd Day..." His den: nothing but Floyd memorabilia. His office at work: Floyd. Screen saver: Floyd. He owns every book, ANY movie they ever appeared in, and any soundtrack on which they ever played. It's not an obsession, and he's not a stalker. Just...a fanatic. And to think it all started with some Nazareth and Ozzy ALBUMS when we were teenagers...

Father's Day is coolly traditional with us...hanging by the pool, dinner and all that (this year the 'rents got a massive grill and rotisseried a roast), but the real deal is ... Floyd Day. ALWAYS the day after Father's Day.
We take the day off, eat junk, drink beer (although this year pops and I will abstain), and listen to Floyd, read Floyd, watch DVD concerts, and just hang out, talking about the history behind Pink Floyd. It's AWESOME.


Talk about a PERFECT vacation day. I miss middlebrotherman, but he's always there in spirit, and calls every year he can't be here.


If there were a perfect gift I could give my dad, it would be for him to meet members of the band.

Happy Floyd Day, everyone! You're at work and I'm high on music! LMAO!
Treble Pink Floyd
.....All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.
"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."
~ Pink Floyd

BP ~ yep, they really are assclowns. LMAO I stole that from Limpy, I think...

I love how close you are with your family, too...My family is my world, no matter what. Floyd Day is going on almost 20 years now.

Oh, I can't claim the original invention of assclown, so feel free to keep using it.

I hope you have a fantabulous day! Save me a brat (that would be weiner-type, not child) and send the leftover beer. When Comfortably Numb comes on, please think of me and send sympathies. I'm currently abstaining in hopes of landing a job that requires drug testing. Bastards. Hey, give your dad a big ol' bear hug and tell him Dr. Birdy said to BEHAVE and STAY HEALTHY! That goes for YOU, TOO!

I heard a rumor that you were off today.

Is there any truth to that? =P
