Anybody got anything special going on? Its boring as hell today for me, my girlfriend came in town from Missouri so we might go to six flags, but its nothing at all on TV, hot as hell, so I guess I need to get out the house and find something to do.


Anybody else got plans for the weekend?

It essentially was created to remember all of those who died in an armed conflict, but now it basically celebrates the beginning of summer.

Yea people usually go to the cemetary monday and pay their respect, most places are closed Monday, and its usually a big cook out weekend, either on Monday or over the weekend, just one of the days where you break out the grill.

Break out the grill finally? Besides December, January and February the grill was never put away. Nothing beats anything cooked on the grill and it has to be a charcoal grill!

couple years back a gorilla escaped from the Dallas Zoo, I am sure that would have sucked if you were one of the people it choked out. if you werent then I am sure it was the best day at the zoo ever.
