Well, at least you didn't say we get together to bbq hockey pucks!

Plans have changed slightly thanks to a mud slide on the main highway here. We will be leaving Friday morning instead of Thursday night (none of us would make it in time for the campground closing at 10 pm) and will go an alternate highway. The new route is at least 1 hour longer, but they say the detour can take between 2 and 4 hours extra!

lol alix, rock, and lp. i've seen those trucks loaded with geese pulling up to the factories in moosejaw and yellow knife, and pallets of pucks being loaded onto trucks from the other end.

the 4th is my dad's 88th birthday, so i think we're going down the shore to see my parents. the only way we can pull this off is to get a hotel room, because traffic home that night will be ridiculous, and my parents sleep late these days and don't need a 7 year old running around at dawn.

then, we're going fluke fishing on a party boat on tuesday.

home to work on the yard and house for a few days, then it's off to either vermont or maryland for a few days.

Enjoy your visit with your parents BT! As you know, I lost my mom 10 years ago and my dad doesn't have much time left, so please give your mom and dad an extra hug from me.

We don't have anything special planned. If I can get some celery this weekend I think I will make potato salad.

Some friends of ours bought a lot of fireworks that they are not able to use in North Carolina, so they are going to bring them down and we will set them off in our yard. I think we will have to leave Cubbie and the cats in the house with the TV on loud because they will not like all the noise of the fireworks!

We don't have much in the way of events planned. We've invited my daughter and family to come up if they want to use the pool. We want to do some kind of a day trip to get out of the house.

I'll be grilling and maybe smoking too.

Did you say "ice cream sandwich casserole"? Please tell me how to make it. It all sounds good.

Well I started my day with Maple coffee today. LOL! I'm working an evening shift and Ken is working days. Kate is off to explore Paris and Madeleine is at a friends. This will be a quiet Canada Day for us. I'll likely leave some kind of easy to heat up dinner and then eat leftovers when I get home.

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks!
