Started the day off listening to Bob Stroud's annual Rock and Roll Roots Used Car Lot show where he plays songs about cars and the open road, just the thing to get a roadie like me ready for the summer. This was also for the Indy 500, which celebrated its 100th birthday.
Lousy weather again, though. The fog was so bad this morning, that I couldn't even see the next door houses. It broke, then we had bad storms.
It finally stopped and we went over to Captain's Quarters on Fox Lake for our "official" summer kick-off. Sitting outside with boaters and bikers, drinking ice cold beer and listening to a band. Price of a bottle of beer was $3.25 and they still have those great Johnsonville brats and fries for $4.
MAY 30th-- MONDAY
The Drive had their History of Rock and Roll all day. They played songs and gave information about the beginning of RnR, through the British Invasion and to all other aspects of the music.
We went to Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, for a small-town Memorial Day celebration. There were three bands in the parade. We went to Main Street Tap (your perfect Wisconsin small-town bar), for drinks before and after the parade, which goes right by it. I had their great and ultimate Bloody Mary which is usually offered on Sundays only.
Then, on to Donovan's Reef (a piece of the Florida Keys in Wisconsin) for brews and NTN.
On the way home, Wilmot Riverside in Wilmot and the Dill Pickle in Spring Grove, Illinois, were closed. We ended up at Tommy's in Spring Grove for beer nuggets and broasted chicken.

EVER WONDER...Why Noah didn't swat those two mosquitoes? (I might add Japanese beetles, flies and gnats.)
