    What's up ... It is the start of the weekend

    At least for most of us in the US. I am done with my temp assignment. I am flying home. I have been away since the end of March except for occasional weekends home. No plans except to see if my tools are not all rusted. Maybe play golf with the wife on Sunday.

    Sitting in Seattle waiting for my last flight.

    Bet you're glad to be home, Bill. We will spend a quiet weekend...a little BBQ, the first ATB's of the season, and I have eggplant, zucchini and squash to grill.

    Welcome home Bill!

    Fireworks tonight and tomorrow night. Food and drink mixed in there as well. Almost everyone we know are out of town or leaving this weekend so we will have a low key weekend until we leave ourselves for a few days next week.

    On call so I ain't going anywhere this weekend.. but I can get out into the shop so its time to turn turn turn! Tonight we'll be busy comforting the dogs from the fireworks.

    Welcome back Bill! Hope your tools are all looking happy.

    Rehearsing Friday afternoon with a band that's wanting me to join them. (New band, gearing up to play the local casino circuit.) This rehearsal will be as much an audition for them as it is for me. I don't know any of the other members personally and haven't decided if I want to join the band or not. Friday evening will be sitting around watching relatives make fools of themselves after too many adult beverages as they light up dozens and dozens of cheesy fireworks (fountains and sparklers, with the occasional smoke bomb for good measure). I'd much prefer to be at the large professional fireworks show at the Balloon Fiesta field (with entertainment by Wynonna Judd), but this will be my only chance to see one of my nephews for a few months, so I'll go for the sake of family.

    Saturday and Sunday are still up in the air. I have some new music gear to play around with, but not sure if I'll have a chance to mess with it, or if I'll be working on learning new songs for the casino band. I'd like to spend some time in the local mountains, but most of the public areas are closed right now due to fire danger. That'll change once we get the summer monsoon rains later this month. I'll also be making daily visits to see my furry girlfriend Mokoga, 140 pounds of Malamute love. Her owners will be out of town all weekend, so I'll be dropping by daily to keep her (and her three feline housemates) company.

    Fireworks, parade, cooking out, with most of the kids and grandkids.
    Maybe go and see the new Transformers movie at the drive in with my grand daughter Abby.

    A little of this tonight...


    A little more tomorrow and doing some grilling. Then have some parts coming for the RV project and its owner coming up Saturday. Also, I need to take my wifes car for an oil change, so will do some worky work while waiting. Sunday will mostly be chilling with the grandson.
