    My Mom, sister, brother-in-law, & nephew are coming up for the holiday as they usually do. We're having a big hot dog cookout at the church with games for the kids, singing for the older folks, ice cream, watermelon, & fireworks. My brother-in-law & I will get in a round of golf. Since they will be here this weekend & my birthday is the next, I should even manage to get a present or two ahead of time. It's looking like a good weekend.

      I'll be on the lookout for cats, and naked gals.

        I will actually be very busy this weekend. The entire 4th of July celebration is put on by the volunteer fire department here, so we volunteers that don't have to work our regular jobs will be starting the day at 0430 [Eek!] and working ALL day. Then we get to do all the clean-up.

        This will be my first 4th of July here since I just moved here a few months ago, so I don't know exactly what all we will be doing but I know it's going to be enough to keep us very busy.

          I'm going to make a point of buying a boatload of fireworks for later use.

            Mike, how I wish I could even BUY fireworks up here. It takes me 15 minutes to buy a freaking handgun ( ) and I can't buy a bottle rocket AT ALL.

              My family always gets together at my grandmas home in the country. There are several of us (me included) that spend way to much on fireworks every year, but we always put on a great show.

                First of all, you cook me breakfast. Once you're done with that you're going to get on one of the trucks and throw candy at me in the parade. Then I'll go home to drink beer and barbeque some red meat, while you get out there on the river and start preparing my fireworks show. And it better beat the ones in Eugene.  -

                  I'll be working patrol up in the hills. Hopefully no one will light any wildland fires by being careless. I hate the fact that our county has banned all fireworks (we use a great deal of discretion as to enforcement [Wink] ) and don't want to see anyone give ammo to the anti-fun un-American crowd.

                  The big biker rally will be in Hollister this weekend, but I probably won't go. Maybe Sunday for a couple hours, but I'm not really into crowds unless it's an airshow.

                    Ive got about 1500$ worth of fireworks Im gonna pop off, most of it is the big crowd pleasers that make alot of noise way up in the air. The kind that maskes everyone oohh and ahhh. [Eek!]

                    Freinds,lots of em, iced watermelon and sweet tea along with most flavors of homeade ice cream and some flavors you've never heard of.

                    Thank goodness we can still blow off fireworks. It just wouldnt be the same without them.

                          Thursday night we will probably go to the fireworks display put on by the Rotary Clubs. Friday morning I get to direct traffic at the parade. Friday evening, I am packing up my **** and getting ready to leave Saturday morning for a week's vacation at Gulf Shores, Alabama.

                          Really looking forward to a week on the beach. Then when I come back to work on the 14th, I am gonna turn in my resignation effective 7-31-03. I start working for the Lamar County Sheriff's Office as a patrol deputy 7-14-03, with the first three weeks spent in the jail at nights after my day job. Can't wait for the fun to begin.
