Pull up a chair, snap your fingers, "double latte" and lets hear whats on your mind. Gripes, comments, compliments, complaints, ideas? Lets get them out in the open and see if we can relate, have some fun, come to conclusions maybe, who knows.

Another picture perfect 1st day of school! I've been taking pics of our kids on the front step for the past 15 years and have never had a cloudy or rainy day. Always sunny and beautiful!

Good Morning,

Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend.

Back to work for some and just another week for retirees.

Meeting today and then a shopping trip with the wife.

Rain predicted as a result of a tropical storm, but my gut feeling is it will miss us this far north.

Good morning everybuddy, hopefully you all had a nice Labor Day Weekend. We did. Relaxing up north, biking with friends, going on adventures. But, no biking yesterday due to the rain overnight.

Handi, hope the moving went well!

Sid, sounds like a nice snack!!

ladi.... Sounds familiar...

Going with the bacon theme, I wrapped a couple of chicken breasts with bacon yesterday and cooked them on the grill, not directly over the heat. Turned out great. Nice and moist.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Happy Labor day to all

I don't remember if it was Golfer or CG that had that great idea on how to cook corn on the cob with the shucks on and then the silks and shucks come off beautifully when cooked this special way. Please, re-run your idea again for me :) thx

Good afternoon,

We finally got a good soak-er today. Two inches so we cannot roast marshmallows. Also, i saw it is national bacon day, so I guess I will have a slice of bacon also.

Hope everyone is having a good Sunday and a good Labor Day tomorrow.

You have some very good ideas.

Saturday morning breakfast of bratwurst piled high with sauerkraut, at the Minneapolis Farmers Market, is also a good idea, bring your own beer.

Coffee for now please, Bunny.

Good morning Treasurehuntxxx, Handi, and everybuddy else coming in today. Grass was too damp yesterday to mow, so will have to do that today before heading out of town. Hoping for a ride with friends on Sunday up north.

Handi, enjoy the weekend!

sout, not allowing the police to do something doesn't sound smart.

MrGG, intersting day yesterday...

wmsb, have a safe and fun trip! 11 was around normal. It is very random. WE have had 20, but we have had 4.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!

Heading up to NJ early this morning. Will return on Tuesday.

Splinter, I know how both of you feel. As you know, our daughter and her family live in CA. We are lucky if we she her three times a year. Since our sons live in NJ, we see them on a fairly regular basis.

BGJam, I second that.

soutxed, glad you had a good time. We could use some rain too but probably won't get any until Labor Day according to the weatherman.

CGRO, was 11 riders more than usual? Glad y'all had a great time last weekend.

Handi, hope you get the chance to enjoy your weekend.

Good Morning,

Found out police had some one in a motel room that would not allow them to serve a warrant. But all ended peacefully. Perk in jail.

Possible rain today, we really need it.

Have a good day.

Good Morning,

Went to the beach yesterday afternoon. Nice way to cool off. Trip home took awhile as there was a detour due to construction and another due to a police situation.

HS Football starts Thursday along with NCAA as the Aggies go to South Carolina on National TV.

Everyone have a good mid week day.

Sid - Yes, UW-Madison is expensive, but thankfully, there is reciprocity between Wisconsin and Minnesota so MN residents going to school in WI pay in-state tuition (plus about 10%).

CG - Sad and exciting, and always part of the plan. It's just such a big change when they come home and then when they leave. Assuming they get jobs after graduation, their visits will likely become less frequent if they are working away from the Twin Cities.

Good morning Sid, and everybuddy else coming in today. We had a fabulous extended weekend, with 6 friends. Mtn biking, pontooning, resort walking. All good. And, MrsCG let us stay until Tuesday morning, when everyone else left. Originally, we were going to leave Monday morning, due to her work load.

Splinter, sad and exciting day.

Handi, wow, that seems early.

We saw lots of eagles around Nelson Lake in Hayward WI.

Have a GREAT day everybuddy!
