    Taking an eight day weekend that starts at COB tonight. Despite the gas prices, driving from Texas to Michigan and back. My nephew/godson just graduated from high school so we'll be partying for/with him on Saturday in the Detroit area and then driving across the state for a family reunion in SW Michigan on Sunday. Monday, it's back on the road for the drive home. Now...if we can just get across the Mississippi basin and back, we might make it.

    an undisclosed number of 9 yo girls are sleeping over at my house on Friday as my daughter's end-of-the-year-never-got-a-birthday-party-in-February-from-my-parents kind of thing - I am scared to say the least

    Saturday, Police Chief and Tax Collector and their respective spouses are coming for dinner

    Sunday - mooch a meal off unsuspecting outlaws

    Ugh, I'm still recovering from this past weekend. All I'm hoping for is that the next weekend involves sleeping in, margaritas, and a couple evenings watching movies while semi-comatose on the couch with RJ.

    Yikes! I'm glad we are past that stage, now we even don't have space to do such a thing anymore. Earplugs and booze were generally my strategy in the past.

    I have a second date on Sunday

    Sat.- the Boy's HS Graduation party. Basically just the fam so it won't be too crazy. Daughter will be home from School. Have not seen her in 107 days. . . .

    Sunday, gig at the Taste of Champaign-Urbana. First time all four of us will be back in town together for about three years. Really looking forward to it!

    Towing the camper up the River to Norrie Point (just north of Hyde Park). Going paddling on the Hudson and hanging out with the hound dog. Probably have some a few Ginitos (my new drink...tanq, tonic, lime and mint!)

    Hopefully will start painting this damn apartment (some moron long ago used oil based paint which ate through my latex paint and two coats of primer sealer, so the maintenance crew will be power sanding down the walls this week).

    Have Friday off, will probably go to that huge water park in Rockford with some buddies and finally get some much needed color.

    Heading to the mountains this weekend with the wife to celebrate our First wedding anniversary.

    Has it been a year already?

    Camping in NE Indiana for two nights. Hoping that the weather isn't bad. The wife and I have a pretty weather resistant tent, but the enjoyment of camping is less if you can't be outdoors.

    Anyone know any really good camping food recipes? I am kinda more than a hot dog and beans guy. I will have a pretty good bbq pit....

    Congratulations! Enjoy the weekend together.

    My best friend is flying up from the Grand Canyon on Friday night to spend a week with me in AK. She's never been here before, so I'm taking all of next week off. I know that Saturday, we're heading to the Third Eye Blind summer solstice concert and then crashing my friend's wedding reception (she has an open bar, and gave us permission )

    The rest of the week is full of ideas. We're heading down to Homer for a few days next week to play in town and go sea kayaking. We're definitely going to get some hiking and biking in. And some good eating and bar hopping. We're going to play a lot of it by ear, but I'd like to get to the Native Heritage Center and some other cultural events, too.

    I'm *REALLY* excited

    Heading to Denver Friday morning with my brother to a Class (School) Reunion. PUB crawling, white water rafting and a private screening of a documentary about military dependents is on the agenda.... plus some hangover recovery time.

    Oh? I am curious as I always tend to think of us "depends" as a but out of sync with the rest of the population and wonder how much study has gone on.

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    I always had good luck with quesadillas; simple ingredients, and you can make them on a camp stove or over a fire. When my son was in cub scouts, we made those foil packet dinners: beef or chicken, with sliced potatoes and veggies, salt and pepper. The secret ingredient was Heinz 57. After a day outside in the cold, they tasted pretty darn good.

    I usually cook on my fire and I usually make one roasted meat meal when I camp. I like rubbing a pork roast tenderloin with dried chipolte pepper, black pepper, sea salt, and crushed garlic. Then I toss in sliced garlic, potatos or sweet potatos, peppers, onions with some olive oil, wrap in foil and roast. A few ears of fresh corn roasted are always good too. Serve with a good micro brew...mmmmmm.

    I think Mrs. Hink_Planner knows better than to think I am rugged, but maybe more mountain man than I currently am. I have always liked the tin foil dinners, but always seem to over cook them...

    I love beef jerky and make homemade often. The Mrs. hates it. So not an option. I like the quesadilla option....interesting.

    Thanks!

    Weekend = Rolling Rock & Other Less Important Stuff

    This Bear's plans for the weekend.....

    (Should I just copy any previous post showing my plans? )

    Friday PM - No plans made, yet. We will probablt sit on the deck at the local seafood restaurant/bar. If ever in Swanton and you have a....heh heh.....clamoring for seafood, try Shucker's.

    Saturday All Day - Stoopid garage sale prep. Last year I vowed to never do another garage sale. But, Katie's brother passed away in February and all of his stuff was stored on the 2nd floor of my big garage. Katie and her brother and sister all agreed to each have a garage sale. The brother has fulfilled his end of the deal, last weekend. Katie and I will do our part a week from Saturday, when Swanton has its' "community garage sale". In July, Katie's sister will do her sale.

    Note: Will my 2nd floor of the garage be "free and clear"? Not! My stepson has all his stuff stored up there and my son has all his stuff stored up there. Plus, we have some (but not a lot) stored up there. Oh, the humanity.....

    Saturday PM - Probably some local pub. Or maybe even stay home. Shocker!

    Sunday AM - Some minor work to the boat. I can't isolate my electrical problem so I will finish the cleaning and getting it ready for fishing. Not much to do in that regard. Early next week, drop it at Devils Lake Marina.....they can find the problem.

    Sunday Balance of day - Watch old movies, work on De Noc. Been doing a lot to the ole' place, of late.....expanding corporate limits in northeastern sector, developing ROWs (water, electric), detailing already-too-detailed spreads on strip centers.

    Rolling Rock will be involved.

    RJ received a belated Father's Day present of a belgian waffle maker, so we will be having a good brunch this weekend, accompanied by some bubbly. And hopefully some sun. A fine, fine weekend.

    Who is celebrating the Summer Solstice tonight ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
