Unfortunately, I just had to take the flags in as we have what looks like and sounds like a vicious storm rolling in from the west right now in northeast Illinois. So far, Saturday and Sunday have been ideal days for celebrations, especially since Memorial Day weekend is usually accompanied by really lousy TNCW (Typical Nasty Carnival Weather).
We officially kicked off summer yesterday for the first band party at Captain's Quarters on Fox Lake ( a part of Illinois' famous Chain of Lakes). It "ain't summer" till we been to the Sunday afternoon party at Captain's.
Today, we go to Twin Lakes, Wisconsin, just over the border about ten miles from here for their annual parade (unless the storm cancels it). We meet up with friends at Main Street Tap for drinks while waiting for the veterans to come marching by.
A big thank you to all the veterans who have enabled us to enjoy this great life we have here in the US.
Thank You Big Time!! --RoadDog
