Putting in the rest of the garden. Spray apple trees. Maybe fishing if it's not too crowded. Staining 2 decks. Grilling. Mow lawn. More things to do than time to do them this time of year.

I'll be spending a moment at the cemetery, I lost my wife, my best friend, the love of my life, ten years ago on Memorial Day to brain cancer. I usually plant flowers around her grave stone on or about that time depending on the weather. I give thanks for every second I was able to spend with her... but then I look around and see all the American Flags, knowing they acknowledge all those who had served our country and many had made the ultimate sacrifice keeping America free. I take a moment to give my respects and thank them. My wife told me shortly before she passed, When I pass, I want you to go outside and live life. I feel all those flags are saying the same thing...

Holidays and weekends are times for me to stay home and get things done. Too many people for me on those times of the years in the outdoors I stay home.


Give me a fish, I will eat for a day. Teach me to fish, I will eat for a lifetime

Our VFW Post has cancelled our Memorial Day ceremony that we traditionally hold. It is unfortunate that it will be our last as our small post can not fill our officer slates any more and we are merging with a neighboring post. Yesterday four of us put out the flags for veterans at 4 cemeteries we put the flags out for. On Memorial Day a small group of us will drive to these cemeteries say a prayer and offer our firearm salute.
After that I plan on planting garden if we stay dry.

Thinking about having a yard sale where I would be selling all my traps and trapping equipment at rock bottom prices.


I want to grow my own food but I can't find bacon seeds.

No clue, everywhere outdoors is going to be packed since some restrictions are being lifted. Might smoke some ribs.

I see the flags are up at the cemetery but Have heard no word on any commencements.

kids are not in school so no band or parade.

probably try and get the last of the garden in , no shortage of work to do around here


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Having our daughter and a friend of hers over for dinner. Wife's grocery shopping today and getting all sorts of meats for the grill. Chicken, burgers, hotdogs, sausage, shrimp, scallops. We may go vegetable free this year and just do a big tray of meat and seafood. Looking forward to it.

Thank you for sharing, so sorry for your loss! Puts things in perspective during these crazy days!

Normally we'd be doing a lot of antique picking and selling this weekend but not much of that going on these days. Got the lawn mowed today as well as a bunch of other little stuff around the house. Wife and I are thinking about doing a road trip up to the Black River Falls area. We're thinking that might be a good place to pick up a chunk of land for retirement.

If nothing else we'll hang around here and eat good food...same thing we've been doing for the last couple months.

Heading 150 miles away to decorate my mother's and uncles and aunt's graves. Next head to a great friend's grave 20 miles down the road where I will plant some Buffalograss. Visit with cousin and brother and family. Dropping off 20 beaver carcasses and 2 five gal. buckets of muskrat carcasses (all frozen) on the way through to a fellow by Omaha who makes coyote bait and lure commercially . Turn around and head home. Recoup the next day -- weed control in son's garden.

Recovering from hernia surgery first off and going over to the cemetery in town to pay my respects to those who went on before and the service men and women.
I wish I could go visit my parents graves but I'm not sure I could handle the driving that would require and the out of state trip.
Enjoy your day and Stay Safe out there even if you don't want to and Thank a Veteran or current service person for their service !
Allan

My boss gave us Friday and Monday off... So a 4 day weekend for me. Been a while since I had that much time off. Pretty nice.

Plenty to do around the house... I did get the mowing done Wednesday, just in time for more rain. And I'm sure there will be something to do out at the ranch.

But right now it's an early Saturday morning and it isn't raining at the moment... So I believe the flintlock and I will head to the squirrel woods.

Need to grind about 800 # of base materials,
work on some powder horns and accessories I am making for a friend that helps with our business,
then mow 4 acres around and trim if the weather holds up. That will shoot a couple of days pretty quick.

I am on call for my job. Have to do readings and a walk about the plant. Also want to mow, weld on some hobby projects. Plan on a little fishing early morn and late evening. But most of all I'll go visit a buddy of my son. They served together in Iraq. My son's buddy came home in a box. I'll kneel down besides his grave and close my eyes and thank him for the huge sacrifice he made. I'm sure I'll hear the voice of my son from the phone call he made to me in the middle of the night saying "Dad, they got Ben". My son... then a 20 something year old who was a brave soldier... a man... but still I could hear the fear and little boy in that voice. Wanting dad to say it will be ok and I am proud of you as I am of all who served.. Yes , though cookout and family time is always in order on Memorial Day, I'll still find time to visit Ben...Ö. Only two ever gave their lives for the American people . Jesus Christ and an American Soldier !!! Thank you both !! [Linked Image]

Three of us put out 145 flags Wednesday. We will have firing and a prayer at the four cemeteries Monday. Our large gathering at the village post house we cancelled.Tomorrow I am working on our basement remodel job.
Today was at our sons and we had a portable saw mill come in and saw up a bunch of ash timber. We had 8 21 foot logs that we got 55 20 foot by 12-15 inch boards out at 1.25 inches thick for new flooring in our hay barn We also got over 50 10 to 14 foot by 12 inches plus at 1 inch thickness for another project. We got all the spacers for drying and probably two cord of firewood. Rough calculation is close to 2700 board foot of lumber and 10 bags of dry ash sawdust for trapping and mulch. The rig is really neat. Rest of the garden is still too wet to rotor till and plant.

Spent all day Saturday getting the pool ready for the wife and daughter not a big swimmer myself. Today I'll be transplanting plants from the green house to garden. Then going to cook out and drink a few cold ones tonight. Monday we will go up to the local war memorial with the daughter. Safe weekend everyone God bless.
