Skywatch Friday – Boys Night Out on the Deck


Once a month, my wife has her book group, and for the last nineteen years or so Logan and I have “Boys Night Out” where we go out and get bite and then go do something depending on our mood. This past Tuesday was our evening and we went to a restaurant here in Tulsa overlooking the Arkansas River.


The air was cool and the sun was warm and the view sublime. Service was kind of slow but we didn’t care we talked about a wide range of topics. Everything from Logan’s school to Article 13 that passed in Europe this week and everything in between and beyond.


When we started the sun was high, when we left it was getting dark.


Did we go home? Nope, time for some ice cream at a funky ice cream joint downtown.


It was Viennese Coffee and Vegan Coffee for him and Peanut Butter Curry and Marshall’s Stout for me. And more conversation for both of us.

Then we went home!

    It’s cool that you and your son have ‘ Boys Night Out’. I wonder when you get drunk together…. ;0)
    The view from the restaurant is lovely.
    Thank you for hosting Skywatch Friday.

    Now that’s what I call a quality night out! Very cool that you and Logan have that experience on a regular basis. Oh, and gorgeous sky shots!!

    That’s a wonderful tradition and wonderful that your son wants to spend that time with you. The sunset was nice but those ice cream flavors sound fantastic.

    That is wonderful! A good opportunity for father and son to enjoy their bonding and quality time together. A special night for the men. I am craving for a yummy-licious ice cream now!

    You and Logan will remember these “Boys Night Out” meetings for as long as you live. I think it is something every father should do with his children. Give each one your undivided attention one night per month. They will never forget. By the way, ice cream is my favorite food group. I need to find that store next time we are in Tulsa. Have a blessed week-end.

    I love that the two of you have made time for conversation and time out with each other for food and ice cream. These are memories being made. Sunset shots are beyond magnificent. Have a great weekend,

    Beautiful sky photos Yogi! And I’ll skip those crazy flavors of ice cream…& stick with vanilla.

    But, I must comment on Logan…he’s becoming a grown man so quickly!!

    Sounds like fun … I expect I would enjoy what the “girls” did back at your home as well … couldn’t go wrong with either activity!

    Boy/man bonding time is important! Especially when it involves ice cream. But Peanut Butter Curry and Marshall’s Stout? What ever happened to good old Neapolitan?
