    What are your plans for the day?

    My plans are cooking a nice hearty breakfast then sitting around drinking this afternoon and helping some guys smoke ribs and chicken. Probably watch fireworks later tonight if I don't pass out.

    I'm hoping my son wants to golf with me. Can't beat spending a few hours hanging out with my best buddy.

    Going to be driving down to my Uncles in Southern Illinois for a long weekend of Golf, boating, and beer.

    Stay safe everyone! And if anybody feels the need to make a 10,000 sparkler bomb, don't forget to get it on tape.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Jack Daniels and grilling all day. May hit up the pool with the kids this afternoon before more grilling with friends tonight. Something about grilling just screams 'Merica!


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
