    Just curious what people are planning for Memorial day? We're going to visit some of my wife's family up in Sherman tomorrow and will think about looking for a parade or something to go to on Monday. Since school just got out, we'll be going to the pool later today as they're opening it up full time for the summer and just get the house cleaned up and better organized. I have some light yard-work to do as well.

    Might be going to Phoenix to see my folks and my brother and sister and their kids early in June too, that's later on of course.

    Anyhow, Memorial day will be pretty low-key for us.

    Not much planned here. It will be my first full weekend off in two months. Hoping to take the kids fishing.

    Since the wife, daughter, and daughters boyfriend gotta work, and none of my co-workers got back to me about going out to the lake on the boat I started up the grill about 6am.
    Thats 22lbs of pure Texas Brisquit smoking away.
    I used three different types of meat rub, a mix of Hickory and Mesquite smoking chips, and a can of Miller Light to keep things moist while its cooking.
    Unfortunately I'm down to 2 cans of ML left so I gotta save tose for the meat, hopefully the wife got my voicemail to bring home some more beer after work.

    Yea I know givin up beer to cook the brisquit with is almost un-American, luckily the wife just got home with a fresh 12 pack so I'm good for a few more hours.

    Gonna get off work at 6am, got home and sleep, and fix up my boat for fishing tuesday afternoon. (i think since my boat has a chevy motor its got the same attitude as my truck where if i dont work on it weekly it gets mad, and breaks), Go hang out with the family some as well since they are coming up from Minneapolis. Should be a very low key relaxing day. My first Memorial day off in 10 years.
