    Long weekend coming up and I'm really looking forward to it. I fly to San Antonio on Friday morning to visit some old military friends - some of whom I haven't seen in over 10 years. I have it on good authority that there will be great quantities of BBQ ribs, brisket, and cold beer! The best brisket on planet earth has always been in Texas and I can hardly wait.

    Disclaimer. While I might have made a snide remark about Robo's hair in the past - I meant absolutely no disrespect.

    Called the Rangers in our local mountains yesterday. They just opened the road up to our favorite campgrounds. So we're taking the RV up fpr our first weekend of the season. BBQd rib-eye over an open wood fire, baked potato, and BBQd corn on the cob.

    I'm going to take Friday also and make a four day weekend.:D

    I will probably go play some disc golf at a local state park & maybe do a bit of fishing at a local state lake that recently reopened for fishing. Maybe i'll be able to catch up with my buddy with a good place to target shoot.

    Heading down to Missouri to a friend's farm--going to sight in my 35 Whelen and 17 Rem Fireball, plus shoot the pistols, then drink some wine around the fire that night...

    My buddy and I are supposed to go camping in the Sierras this weekend. However, there is a forecast for snow. :eek:

    I don't mind being cold, but I really don't want to be cold and wet and call it fun. So, it's up in the air right now.

    We will be staying home this weekend. :(

    Taking a couple of extra days off to make it a really long weekend. Got to finish ripping up the carpet downstairs in preparation for the new flooring I will be putting in and I have to rebuild the gate on the side of the house to what I envisioned the first time. Stupid Contractor. :mad:

    Everyone who is traveling, Stay Safe and watch out for those pesky Memorial Day Speed Traps. ;)

    Gee sounds like fun for you guys,

    Linda and I will be working. Memorial Day is a really busy time for us and unfortunately not in the good way. Usually a lot of domestic violence, drunks and assaults for Linda and a lot of smugglers, drunks, and assaults for me. Just another day at the office I guess.

    Well, I was going to stay in DC, but I decided to head to Chicago for the weekend. Prolly play some golf and go out for fancy dinner dates with the Mrs.

    I'm really tired from all the work I've done down in the gulf lately, so I need a break, but I'll be back for Paul's concert!!!!!














    your President,

    First, I'm headed downtown to pay my respects at the veteran's memorial in public square. this is going to be the first time I'm properly celebrating memorial day in a few years. I am very psyched.

    After that I'm off to a BBQ at my gf's sister's house. their family is huge; she has 6 sisters, 2 brothers (all of them are married or have significant others), and double that number in nephews and nieces. cold beer + hot food + good people = awesome times.
