TUESDAY, JULY 12TH-- Spent about two hours working on the electric chainsaw, but couldn't get it to work. I needed it to cut the sumac tree which was blown down by yesterday's storm. It was only about 15 feet tall, but had some thick branches.
I did trim the leaves off and smaller branches by hand. Pretty sappy work.
Went to Donovan's Reef in Twin Lakes to play NTN and for those huge Maxwell Street Polish sausages they feature on Tuesdays for $2. It includes sauerkraut and grilled onions for that price, $1 extra for fries. We had about eight top twenties.
Lance fixed my chainsaw and I won $107 on Shake -A-Day with 5 fives!! They're about to ban me from the place as a month ago I won $340 on it. Before that, i had never won. Now twice in two months.
WEDNESDAY JULY 13TH-- Unfortunately, the chainsaw didn't work. Cooler temps so worked out in the yard on Frances' Back Forty. Friend Paul came over with his chainsaw and was nice enough to cut up the tree.
Met him, his wife Sue, Kora and Pam at Castaways on Pistakee Lake and sat out on the deck, enjoying those $1 drafts and 40 cent jumbo wings. Then went inside and had a great time singing along with and harassing Jim Seig, the one-man entertainer.
Stopped at Chef DaVito's in Johnsburg on the way home.
Planning on boating today and then meeting the Usual Suspects in Antioch for 25 cent wings at The Lodge and to hear the Pirates Over 40 Jimmy Buffet band at the band shell.
Out on the Chain and Feelin' No Pain. --RoadDog
