LABOR DAY WEEKEND 2017 Well, we initiated the three day weekend this morning, officially making it a four day weekend here. On the way home from an extended breakfast, we bought fixings for some simple shisk-a-bobs. (Might be a new way of spelling that?). Already have onions, so added sweet peppers, a small summer squash, roma tomatoes, and shrimp. The shrimp are grown locally here. Tomorrow or Sunday, we may go flying - on the watch for those advancing columns of enemy tanks, enemy shipping sneaking up the local rivers, and herds of rogue musk ox. We'll call in any sightings, and request close air support (read 20 mm cannon fire, and 500lb high frags). Can't afford to take any chances, ya know. All in all, just a quiet weekend.
