I'm doing my now annual trip down to Douglassville, PA to a friend's place for the long weekend. (that's because they've had to suffer through my July 4th soirees for the past decade or so... ) I had been watching the Jones Beach Air Show prior because I so love the planes, but the crowd has grown too big for my pleasure...
Be safe out there
...and monitoring the Slide Fire.
Florida! (and maybe a side trip to Disney).
Is a holiday when you are retired.
Daughter is graduating from college. Woooo Hooooo. The bills are about to stop!
Besdes staying around Washington, DC is not a burden & avoids the traffic that's going elsewhere.
We are free because of the brave who gave all. Remember them.
Just for starters.
I'm about 2000 miles behind for this season ... time to catch up
it's the dog's fault
To avoid the crowd. Took the vacation a week early. It is now the good time to make some overtime pay.
Gonna take advantage of decent weather before the liquid sunshine arrives and get some much need wind therapy with a few friends.
Decided to stay off the overly crowded Long Island roads and enjoy a BBQ with family and friends. Hope the weather holds up. Would love to watch the airshow but crowds have been just too much. Fortunately, my house is in the flight path from Republic Airport and Jones Beach so we get to see many of the planes fly overhead as they head to the show. Enjoy the holiday and be safe all.
Staying home, flying the flag, and enjoying son-in-law and daughter for visit. Everyone have a good and safe weekend.
Heading for Mt Rainier this morning with daughter, her hubby and 3 grandkids (from Fairchild AFB). Tomorrow putting a brisket and ham in my Masterbuilt smoker. Add a macaroni salad and baked beans for a perfect day with family. Son would be here too, but he is in Sicily for a couple of days before setting down in Afghanistan.
After all they didn't make the ultimate sacrifices or risked their lives so that we beneficiaries could "shop till we dropped" on their day of recognition & respect! There are plenty of opportunities to spend... before & after the holiday.
I'll be making this yummy dish called Shabu-Shabu!
Burning chicken on the grill.
...while my wonderful wife drives up to bring our daughter home from college for the summer.
All in all, I'd rather be healthy and making the 6 hour drive each way!
A quiet weekend with the grandkids.
Ah no plans!
I worked today and I'm working tomorrow, but Monday my wife and I are having family and friends over for a cookout. One batch of baby back ribs cooked low and slow and another batch hotter and quicker. Yum!
I use this day to remember all of my classmates, squadronmates and friends killed in aircraft accidents. We went to a simple but well-done Memorial Day Service this morning and plan to have a family BBQ this afternoon.
We took a short (100 miles) trip to visit Mt. Cuba near Wilmington, DE. This evening, will toast all those in the military who gave their lives for us.
We are visiting Bryce Canyon National Park.
Wishing I was somewhere else.
and avoiding the drunks.
Avoiding all Memorial Day traffic in my small touristy town.
... I put over 600 miles on my Harley during the three-day weekend.
