So what that is like 34 degress outside.  So what if I am going to have to get out my snow pants for the 9:00 AM tee time tommorow.  It's Friday and beer and cookouts await.  What does your weekend have in store.


Rather be on BA

Heading over to Grand Haven, MI, with some friends and family for a weekend of beer drinking and (hopefully) boating.  After two very long weeks the long weekend is more than welcome!  Wish it would get a bit warmer so we could boat and go to the beach, but I will take what I can get!

Flying to Tampa tonight so that I can drive mom and her two cats back to MI for the summer/fall.  Just hoping to get back early enough Sunday night to erase it from my memory.  Golf on the holiday - weather and level of hangover permitting.

My weekend actually started today - we took the kids to Jungle Java in Canton and then to McDonalds for a lunch and some further play. We thought they would pass out, but they are now in the backyard playing. All the same, it was a fun outing. 

Tonight, tomorrow and Sunday will basically be all about grilling, sports and the odd drink, interspersed with various visitors to the house to help me eat all the food I plan on making. There will, of course, be the Jabrill Peppers announcement on Sunday, so that is also part of the gathering then. 

My wife actually works on Memorial Day, so I may take the kids to the neighborhood park, assuming they have mowed it and it is no longer the mosquito-laden meadow that it typically is. Otherwise, we'll just hang out at the metropark and I'll make them some hot dogs for dinner.

Moved back home for the summer and got my old job back at Sears. I will be working all weekend. At least I got a morning shift Saturday, so I can catch the Wings game.
