About Last Weekend-- Part 2: Yardwork, Hornets, Bars, bands, and Enjying the House
FRIDAY, AUGUST 4
Crummy weather all day. Did not sit out on the front porch because it was so chilly. But, cooler weather is a good time to work in the yard. A whole lot less sweating, so did a lot of yard work today.
Went to Sunnyside Tap in Johnsburg and then the American Legion in Fox Lake where we met up with the "Usual Suspects."
SATURDAY, AUGUST 5
It would seem that someone or somebody has declared war on Confederate monuments. I am not a happy camper about this.
Did some yardwork until I came across a ground nest of hornets or wasps and beat a hasty retreat.
We went to the Legion in the afternoon and saw Mark Heller perform. Where else are you going to get entertainment from 3 to 6 in the afternoon?
SUNDAY, AUGUST 6
Enjoyed the FP (Front Porch), OD (OD) and gazebo over the course of the day. I had a big bonfire and got rid of a lot of branches from the downed part of the Bradford pear tree.
Enjoyed the street party at the PLAV (Polish Legion of American Veterans) in McHenry from 1 to 6. It was all-you-can-eat and drink for $10 a person. Plus a deejay/karaoke. Now that is a real hard deal to beat.
