(WWBT) - The weekend is over, but let's not cry about it ... dad still deserves some peace and quiet.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! We hope you enjoyed your grilling utensils and ties. You can still give your dad some extra love on the NBC12 Facebook page, like this shot of John Stanley's legacy in Petersburg - Now, that's a lot of love!

It's getting hot in here.

Get ready for summer's first batch of REALLY hot weather coming Monday and Tuesday. Bring out those sundresses - the heat index will climb to nearly 105 degrees on Tuesday.

And if you've been singing Nelly since that last headline...

Tickets are still on sale for his show at Innsbrook After Hours on July 28. He's changed his look a bit, too.

Made in the USA, uh, how about made in Chesterfield?!

A Central Virginia wine company hit it big after securing a deal to sell their product at Walmart! "Shoe Crazy Wine" will be available nation-wide starting next year. By the way, us locals can already get a glass... or two... or three. Here's where to buy.

Get out of my lane!

A driver in Indiana was pulled over for refusing to get out of the left lane. The sergeant to thank says the driver had 20 cars lined up behind her.

Feeling bored?

Get out of here with that attitude - Summer is just getting started! Here's ten must-do events for families in RVA.

Better Together

Some Louisiana kids penned a letter to Blue Bell Creameries suggesting a name change for one of their ice cream flavors that left the company "amazed." Instead of calling it "Great Divide," the kids suggested a more inclusive name - "Better Together." And we're diggin' it.

No word on if the company will make the change. But get ready ice cream fans - Blue Bell Ice Cream is returning to Central Virginia.

A community is coming through.

Just one day after family and friends say 16-year-old Vernard Morton was bullied into a pool where he later drowned, messages of kindness are pouring in.

Morton's mother says she's getting honking horns and anti-bully posters from complete strangers.

And and that's not all. An area funeral home, owned by Henry Dabney, plans to take care of the family's funeral expenses.

"Thank you so much, whoever it was, thank you," Morton said. "I needed that."

Final Thought:

"A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content."
