It's not too soon to start making plans for this weekend. So what are your plans? Me, I'm going to starting packing for my move to the Sunshine State. :cool: My sons and I will also have a bbq with some friends. Oh yeah, and drink beer. :b:

I was going to see my buddy in FL, but he got deployed (my biggest grief about the military) not long ago, so I’ll be chilling at the house. I’ll have a few of these :b: , sleep in, work out, chase women (yeah right), and other unforeseen things.

I believe I will be doing housework to get an unfinished bedrooom ready. Play golf if the wife has no objections (she usually does).

I'll be having a blast moving over the weekend. Arrrggggh.... I am so sick of moving. The soon to be Mrs. Biscuit and I got a place across town (no more walking to work :-( ) so I will be spending Friday-Monday moving her things up from her place an hour south of here, and then taking over what she's allowing me to keep of my stuff from my current apartment. I then get to spend the next week waiting sitting around, waiting on the cable guy, waiting on furniture delivery...... FUN!!!;-)

Gedunkerson soccer game Saturday, then finish filling/sanding/priming/painting window cases, door cases and baseboards in the kitchen (probably consuming most of Sunday and some Monday too). Bar-b-Que at the in-laws on the Ohio River Monday. Drop into Cyburbia from time to time.

No, that's WHY I'm going on a bender. She ran off with Michaelskis during lunch - had two one way tickets to Vegas. I guess all that tough talk about deathmatches scared her away from me. |-)

Fishing and camping with the kids and parents, Barbeque at one of my dad's cousins' house, family reunion (usually 120 to 150 people) at Aunt Betty's farm visit the gravesites of my relatives starting with my GGGgrandmother. Oh I almost forgot, I think my dad's half brother who went 40 years without contact with my grandfather will be to his first reunion. I'm the family historian, so I tend to get asked alot of questions by the old timers about people they remember when they were children.

But I thought women loved men to fight over them… :p I was betting on you anway, a man with a waterfowl as a pet is bound to be crazy in a fight.

A Long Deferred Project!

I'm installing a....clothesline!

One of those T-bar, galvanized deals so I can take advantage of Colorado's splendid sunshine and reduce the amount of the check I write to the electric company to run that dryer!

By the way, I've got no conflicting covenants to deal with as my place is not in one of the up and coming botique 'hoods that frown on that sort of thing....

Have kids? I put one of those in last year, and my son took it out during a game of football. They just don't make them like they used to.

I've had 5 gallons of mead (jest plain ol' clover honey) sitting in carboy #2 (traditionally my secondary fermenter) for about 18 months now (yes, the gravity really is changing) and I was going to bottle this weekend...the trouble is I need a few more pint bottles and I am morally opposed to purchasing empty bottles expressly for filling with my brew - no, I gotta drain about 8 more Grolsch this holiday weekend to ensure sufficient bottle supply. Here in MI its too tempting when low on cash to turn in your empties at 10 cents/piece...nasty habit.

My son will be at the beach with a friend and his family, so I plan to run the errands that bore him to tears (like Home Depot), and start on a couple home-improvement projects. Maybe get a little sun, do some reading.

We (the wife, the son and I) are going to Bozeman for two days, then back home, where we will take advantage of Memorial Day sales to buy a washer and a lawnmower. Ain't domesticity grand! Hey, if I am really feeling crazy maybe get an edger too!

Jestes is that a Rail-to-Trail ?
Yes it is the Longleaf Trace Rails to Trails, part of the Pearl to Leaf Rivers Recreational District. It is 41 miles long and runs from Hattiesburg, Mississippi northeast to Prentiss Mississippi. It starts at elevation 280 in Hattiesburg, peaks at elevation 520 at about the 35 mile marker then back down to around 330 in Prentiss. Check out more about it at Longleaf Trace

OK, I am jealous now. I want to make meade but I do to much brewing to lock up my fermentors doing it. I am on track to but up against the legal limit this year of 200 gallons (100 per adult per household). By the end of the year, I will have the bugs worked out of the brewery and will be able to apply for my brewing license I think. :-D

You going to the Chi Laefest with Michaelski?

Friday night I will be seeing Anthrax in Chicago. Saturday I will hopefully go biking somewhere (pending the weather) and maybe going to a Brewers game. Same with Sunday. Monday - no set plans yet.

I think thats pretty cool to do that for your family.
BTW, in regard to this weekend, I am going to the beach to chill and I invited ZG to come over and visit....but no she is going to "run errands" and stuff.
