Most of the weekend was a literal washout.  We had rain all day Saturday and Sunday.  I didn't have any plans, so I wasn't bothered, but I'm sure a lot of people were upset.

Monday was overcast at first, but by 1:00 the sun came out.  Went to my friends' house for a bbq at about 4:00, was home by 9:00.

I hope it is a happy long weekend for everyone! I'd like to take a break from the incessant yard work but it isn't possible. I'll just try not to overdo it. Today my second oldest grandson helped me with the three yards over at my rental house. We had two weed whackers going and made quite a bit of progress.

Yesterday I was part of a 7-person team who volunteered at a lady's house who was in the hospital with breathing problems. We made good progress there too. We even took down a dead tree. I didn't tell anyone this but I noticed when I arrived there that her garden was in better shape than mine!

Somewhere I have the business card of a guy who helped out a couple of years ago. Why I haven't called him and gotten some relief, I just don't know.

I'm having my own private (unfortunately  :(  ) indoor Memorial Day picnic for supper today here at the house. I'm having shredded (maybe pulled?) pork barbecue, potato salad, and baked lima beans, with fresh strawberries for dessert.

Tomorrow afternoon I need to head back to my own place. Before I do, I'll go by the diner for their half-pound Angus cheeseburger.

I'm going to make some shredded pork myself, in the crockpot.

Fun way to go out!

From what I saw on weather.com, it looks like Monday may be a washout, with rain and thunderstorms most of the day.

Same here, and my high-school friends and I gather at a lake every Memorial Day (and every Labor Day). We're still planning to do it, because a couple of us live close enough to the lake to offer Plan Bs.

The latest forecast I heard for here predicts really bad weather late in the afternoon and into the evening. Rain or no rain, I'm tempted to go our tomorrow and buy some chicken and make over-fried chicken with the recipe on the Bisquick box. It's terribly unhealthy, and I haven't made it ever since I got my George Foreman grill, but it's awfully good.

My mother never made fried chicken; she made the Bisquick recipe.
