Going to get in a river and float with some of my best friends until we can't float anymore. God bless America.
Same as every year, celebrate my birthday. Have some friends coming into town for a long weekend of festivities.
Being from Texas City. We wil be in Austin at Brother in law's house. They live out side of Round Rock.
Would like to go check out the New Oasis on Lake Travis. Is it worth it?
Probably Unamerican of me but the wife and I are heading to France tomorrow. Ironically, we're coming back on France's Bastille day (their equivalent of the 4th of July). Here's to hoping our players stay smart during the booze-filled holiday
On call Thursday, so will hang around the house cooking most of the day for the weekend in Port O'Connor with 25 or so friends. I have the dinner duty for Friday night. Lots of food and drink. Maybe a little trout and red fishing. Fireworks Saturday night over the water. God Bless America, and God bless those who have paid the price for our liberty.
Never been a big fan of the food there. The view is tarnished by what's left of the lake.
I'd recommend Verdes down Hamilton Pool road. Maybe 10-15minutes from the Oasis. One of my favorites in Austin. Get the bacon wrapped stuffed quail with the cilantro lime rice, poblano mashed potatoes and wash it down with the blueberry bread pudding. If you have kids its a great place. There's a huge yard in the back where they can run and play. Very chill.
Thanks for the info.
I am looking for volunteers to help in our move about that time. Our subdivision has fire works and lots of activities so we do not venture far.

As I currently am on our honeymoon, the wife wants to go to the July 4th Rangers game and watch the fireworks there. So we are doing that and she is planning on making a poster in an attempt to get on TV.
Going to a fellow longhorns house for his annual 4th of July party.
His house is on a hill overlooking the entire Portland/Vancouver metro area and you can see every firework show around town.
Fireworks are legal so you see all of that also.
Quite the spectacle. Will try and get some pictures.
Just got back from London, Paris and Amsterdam.
Make sure you hit up Normandy.
Paris was our favorite and want to go back.
Nice. We're going to Brugge first then heading to Bayeux in Normandy before spending the rest of our trip in Paris.
Been in Corpus snow Sunday with the grandkids and heading back tomorrow. We may catch the fireworks at San Gabriel Park in Georgetowm but other than that, not much. These kids wore my ass out. Why is there not an elevator on water slides?
Dams auto correct, since not snow. Snow would have been nice though.
Brugge is awesome, hard to beat Belgian beer especially when it's so cheap at the motherland. If you can get your hands on it drink some Westvletren. In Brugge Straffe Henrik has a very nice brewery to tour.
I put the rub on the brisket last night and it's sitting in the fridge until late tonight.
Today before lunch my son and I got the ribs out and put a separate rub on each one. One rack will be a little more spicy and the other a bit more sweet. They'll go on tomorrow around lunch.
It makes me hungry just thinking about it. We're going to have quite a few people so I'm hoping there are leftovers for me to snack on throughout the remainder of the week.

Now that I'm near family, get as far away from them as possible.
Nothing special planned. Think I just might hang out and be a Longhorn ... me and the wife might take in a movie.
Postscipt: itsimedan, I quoted you by mistake, I don't have any family, but if I did, I just might resemble your remark! ;)
