    Default July 4th Whats Up?

    With July 4th falling on a Thursday, what are you doing?
    Is it a 4 day weekend? Is dog training in your plans along
    with the ribs and beer?

    It is raining cats and dogs here in Ga. I was going to my place in Boston,Ga.
    this weekend but I think it will be a washout. Some of the folks in our training
    group have to work Friday. I am going to train local tomorrow if its not pouring.
    I hope we can train on Saturday at Day/Didier farm. Reese, is leaving for Michigan
    on Sunday night.

    So lets hear what everyone is doing to celebrate our independence!!!

    Training tomorrow, Friday and Saturday mornings for sure. BBQ and beer then going to the local festival for some rock n roll and fireworks on the 4th. I've been excited since Monday morning when I kept thinking about this being a 3 day work week. Weather here couldn't be better, 60's at night and upper 70's to low 80's for the high. It's gonna be glorious!

    Our forecast is for 108* with a low of 75*. The dog and I will be at the local JC at sunrise to do a few marks before it gets warm. I live in a Navy town and we have a really nice celebration at the downtown park. Then, we are off to the county fair because my daughter has meat chickens in the auction as her 4H project.

    I am normally off Friday-Sunday so the 4th gives me a 4 day weekend instead of 3 day. Plan on training all 4 days.

    Cook tonight for my husband's family's Fourth of July eat a thon at their pond house. Then, since I've been blessed with a bunch of work I am gonna work. And work. And when I get through with that work some more.
    If I get a little bit of a break, though, some of Gregg's pigeons are gonna be in grave danger.

    I do have a nice set up planned on some newly formed running water if it'll just let up a couple hours in the morning. But by far the wettest spring/early summer in north east Georgia I remember.
