There’s just something special about the last working day before a holiday weekend. The sun is out, the temperature is rising, and no one gives a damn about work. All thoughts turn to the weekend, and in cubicles across America folks are jotting down their shopping lists for their stop at the liquor store that afternoon.
20 Prospect Jr. left this morning around 5am to go fishing with his uncles up in Duluth. By now they should be out “on the big lake they call Gitchi-gumi” dropping lines for Coho Salmon, and Lake Trout. Here’s hoping they land one bigger than him. I’m not the fishing kind of guy, nor am I particularly fond of being out on the big water in a little boat. No, if you are going to get me out on Lake Superior this is the kind of vessel I want to be in…
The boy returns tonight, and the 20 Prospect clan will be hanging out here in the Twin Cities all weekend doing the usual summer holiday stuff. When I get home tonight I will hang the flag out front and the games will officially begin; grilling bratwurst, sipping frosty beverages, tossing bocce balls around the backyard, etc… You know “Hot dogs, baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet”
So happy Memorial Day to you all. If you are heading out of town, going up North to the cabin, or just chilling in the backyard hammock, be safe.
