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.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 26TH

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.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27TH

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
