    Default Labor Day Weekend 2010

    Curious to know what my fellow Linkers have in store for their last Summer Weekend Blowout?

    Mine is going back home to attend my brothers Marine retirement party. After nearly 26 years of service, he retired 9/1/10. He rose from private to CWO2. Served our country in things seen, and unseen. During peace and wartime, including three combat tours in the Middle East.

    Even though the two of us bumped heads, A LOT, growing up...and still do occasionally, I admire him, I respect him and I stand in awe of him. For as much as we bag on each other, he's my big brother, and I love him.



    I'm not sure if you'll be able to post on this Facebook sight, but if you can, drop him a line and tell him thanks...or whatever.

    http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/...662733&index=1

    He was always unassuming about his service. Never asked for public accolades. I think he finally deserves a round of applause/thanks for always being ready to go.

    Just make sure you put you know me so he can brow-beat me this weekend for embarrassing him.

    God BLESS him and God BLESS you, bud! Love you guys and I would hope, even though I don't know him like I know you, that you would pass on my uptmost appreciation for his service for the rest of us. HATS OFF. REALLY...

    All I can say is that i'm glad he's on our team. He looks like he could put a beat down on someone without taking his hands out of pockets.

    Our first football game is tomorrow at noon against Western Michigan. I don't plan on going but I'll watch it and probably have a cookout. Two of my friends turn 21 this weekend so that should be...interesting.

    So far so good. Spent the day at the Deutsche Bank PGA tournament and followed Tiger and Mickelson around the course. The tourney is here every Labor Day Weekend and it was my 4th year there. Without a doubt it's always one of the highlights of the year for me......and it doesn't hurt that we started drinking at 10:30 this morning and left at 6.


    I can tell you from first hand experience that the crowd could not have been more respectful towards Tiger. Many times today I was only a couple of feet from him and not once all day was there anything even remotely close to a disrespectful comment. He got great applause's and nothing but people wishing him luck.

    Don't know if any of you have a PGA tournament come to your area but if you do you gotta go. Such an awesome time every time.

    I actually just got back from our Labor Day camping. We went early to beat the crowds to a little lake down in Central Oregon high desert (no bugs!).

    ...friggn' horrible the first night (Tuesday). I guess Monday it snowed 2 inches there! Still cold Tuesday, and some rain....not fun. VERY cold at night (tent camping). I caught a cold and still have a fever from it. Wednesday was better. We went to the lower elevations and checked out all the lava stuff around the volcano areas. Yesterday was RAD. Rented a boat and cruised the lake all day. Kids loved it. 75 and perfect. Today was 80. Just got back a couple hours ago.

    Iam laboring on Labor day.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Isn't it sad what's become of us? I technically had yesterday off, but I had a couple of things I didn't want to table until Tuesday, so I set about getting them done. Even with that, I only planned to work until around noon. I ended up staying active pretty much the whole day...

    Camping in the rain has to rank as one of the worst experiences you can have. It's miserable.


    Went camping in New Hampshire in '98 when the kids were 4. It POURED the first 4 days of our 5 days there. It was mostly non-stop pouring day and night with very few breaks. Everything inside the tent was soaking wet the whole time and the entire campsite was a mud pit from day 1. It was unbelievable.

    Ha ha ha! I know what you mean. I was going to come in yesterday, but I said, "Screw it! I've earned the four-day weekend."

    +++ +++ +++

    As for me, I'm going to:
    1. Spend some time in the Word of G-d/HaShem;
    2. Spend some time with family;
    3. Do stuff around the house (lawn, laundry, etc.);
    4. Change the strings on three of my guitars;
    5. Practice with two different bands for our church's end of summer Slam-o-rama next weekend;
    6. Take a nap on Sunday afternoon;
    7. Have a couple two-three beers; and,
    8. Reset the home studio so I can record something soon.
