I remember when I LOVED three day weekends. Not only did it mean I got three days off, but the next week was a short one. That's not to say I didn't love my job. All that accounting and math kept me busy. Nowadays I think more about the reason for the holiday. A lot of my high school senior friends went to Vietnam and never came back.
I hope everyone remembers all our lost servicemen this weekend, and that you remind your children to tell your grandchildren about this holiday. It's important to remember ALL the people who made this country the best place to live in the entire world.
With that said, I'm celebrating the completion of my fence. FINALLY the hole is closed up. Maybe there won't be any errant skunks running around the back forty, at least for a week or two. In spite of their appearance, the boards are still in excellent shape.
About the grass ... I know, it needs to be mowed, but the landscape and gardener people don't want their fancy mowers going off-road. I'm thinking maybe a riding mower I can race around on doing donuts in the sand. At least it would make weed mowing fun!!
