Boating, Football, Civil War, Bands, Raffles and Bars This Past Weekend

As usual, you'd have a hard time not having fun around here during the summer, or what's left of it.


I went to the Fox Lake American Legion to help with the VA picnic and fishing derby and got involved with some serious landscaping projects.  Afterwards, Liz and I went boating around Stanton and Mineola bays on Fox Lake and then I went over to the Johnsburg-Plano football game at Johnsburg High School which ended up in a win for Johnsburg.


Drove to Crystal Lake, Illinois, for the McHenry County Civil War Round Table discussion group's meeting on women and wives during the Civil War.

In the afternoon/evening, we went to the Sons of the American Legion Gun Raffle at the Fox Lake American Legion and heard the band Empty Pockets and enjoyed the bbq.  I did well on the other, non-gun raffle, winning two dinners at local restaurants and a 32-inch HD TV.  This is FAR better than I usually do on raffles.

Still Sunday to Go.  --RoadDog
