    A quiet one here. Pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, watermelon and ice cream sundaes. My young son had inner ear surgery this week and is on restricted activities(no running, jumping, swimming, base jumping) for a month. He is doing well. Not too happy, but well.

    -Dennis, raspberries are about a week out for me, just turning color now. I can't wait.

    Its been a good day here. Kids got a couple hours of fun from the new $10 kiddie pool, my wife, SIL and MIL took them out for ice cream and I snuck out for an hour of helicopter flying down at the r/c field. Then all back to the house for grilled sausage and peppers, corn, slaw and potato salad. Now the kids are in bed so probably watch the fireworks on TV...

    Wow, that's a non-trivial procedure. Hope the young guy has an uneventful and comfortable recovery, and all works like it should in the end. Rick

    Thanks Rick, he took it like a little man.

    Inner earbones removed. 6 month recovery and titanium repalacement in January. Prognosis looks like he will have most of his hearing restored in that ear at the end. There were some kids with worse medical conditions in the hospital, are thoughts went to them.

    Stuck around the homestead. Burgers/dogs on the grille. Fire in the pit with a few brews. Living on the Lake we have fireworks displays all over. So will sit in the lawn chairs come dark with a few more brews.

    Hope you all have a safe 4th, Enjoy the day with family and friends!

    When I first saw the youtube, I thought cat but noticed the rigging to the left:) I'm jealous - I miss sailing. Last time out was a couple of years ago on my sister's J on Keuka Lake, NY.:(

    I spent the day in my jammies, a true day off. We put together a new cage for our soon to be pet bird - next week - a Hahns Macaw. It was over 90 degrees here today so going outside to do anything was short. I made BBQ Chicken on the grill for my hubby and I with some corn on the cob and homemade coleslaw. The neighbors started "making noise" about 7 so I've spent the last several hours keeping my little Jack Russell calm, he gets so worked up over loud noises he shakes until he throws up. He's finally sleeping but my other JRT is still running around the house like a nut job.

    Now, Hubby is making paper catridges for a Civil War Era black powder shoot Saturday (he casts his own lead heads) and I'm watching Family Guy.

    A nice day, did a whole lot of nothing but the rest was well needed ;)

    HOLY CHIT! be careful crossing moving water...I know that doesn't look very deep there, but I've seen people trying to go across crazy deep flooded roads only to end up getting into a precarious situation......just ask my little Honda Accord I used to have.....it turned into a boat for a couple minutes a long time ago......back when I was young and dumb...

    Around these parts, we call that an ATF party.:cool:

    Wore myself out cutting a pile of wood. Then fixed the classic 4th-O-July meal of Mexican style skirt steak with hot peppers and fresh cilantro. Don't forget to lightly toast the tortilla in a dry pan. (whut? That doesn't sound authentic?==c) Ended up with me and the dog on the front porch and a few cold ones.
