    Nothing wood related. We will be canning about 120 jars of tomatoes and my man cave is where the family always want to do them. So the beer fridge is loaded and I will be doing some BBQ for all those who attend.

    Hope everyone has a safe holiday!

    Go for it, K !!! (on many levels ;) )

    Museum tomorrow, groceries after, then home to the Murph :cool:

    Cleaning the 2 chimneys ( 1st time in 2 years .. don't want to push it too much !). Help from the Dixette on that one. Paring down the "too big for either stove" piles, Cutting rounds into reasonable sizes. Cutting the grass. BBQ something at some point.

    Also going to start moving the "emergency wood supply" onto the back deck. At least a cord.

    Geez, I'm tired already :mad:

    Hope your Bacon Day goes as well. Pancakes and bacon for breakfast, looks like BLTs for lunch, and something involving boneless chicken, bacon, and the keyhole pit for dinner. Perhaps another pic later.

    You ever go to Plath's, Dave? Fifteen pound box of #2 bacon for $40. Odd shaped pieces, but still lean and still really good.

    I honestly had never heard of Bacon Day before this morning. We bought the bacon yesterday, so why not celebrate?

    Never heard of it Jeff...until now.
    Wife mentioned going to the "big" JoAnn's up in Petoskey soon (she sews, makes dolls, knits, crochets, and quilts - very talented), so maybe we'll drop in there.
    We both love bacon, though we don't eat it much.
    BLT's, here we come. The garden is supplying the maters.:cool:

    Never been to the Petoskey location. East coasters go to Rogers ;). Usually don't buy bacon because it is too expensive, but that's less than $3/lb.

    Gonna upgrade the forum on Sunday. I guess when you are semi-retired like we are, the particular days or weeks don't mean as much.
    However, we just took the grand daughter down here (without mom and dad) for two days. That was a blast!

    Labor Day I will be with the kids at Disneyland in Paris. It is the first day of school in France so hopefully it will be empty. Wednesday I have to ship them home to get ready for their first day of school. Then finish my project here so I can get home too.

    D'oh . . . I knew there was something else I was planning on doing . . . celebrating my 17th wedding anniversary with my wife. However, after 17 years it was a pretty low key affair -- pizza from the local pizza place.

    My son, who is in college coming home so we can replace tie rods , inner and outer on both sides, on his car.
    Then taking it to get it aligned. Glad he is old enough so I can just watch and advise. Plus he is a ME major.

    If the neighbors aren't having any parties / guest....and the weather cooperates.....fire up the burn barrel to burn more brush (almost done).....clean the Chimney, and try to convince the wife to let me buy a couple sticks of wood so I can at least start framing the wood shed that I started 6 months ago....so far I've got two 4x4x7's (shortened 8 footers) with a 2x6x12 in between to make the back end
