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.
