Amazingly nothing much going on here either Saturday or Sunday, so we'll take the time to do a few small projects around the house. Maybe go out to dinner one night to celebrate our youngest getting one of the spots in UPK for the fall (pre-school, they only had 18 spots available this year so it's a lottery of everyone who applies. 34 applicants. My wife went to the drawing, our kid was called number 17 of 18).

On Monday we're going to the Memorial day parade since our oldest cub scout pack is marching in it.

As for Memorial day on Monday, a relative of my wife thought it wise to have a wedding that day. The grooms family is from out of state! Have fun flying and or driving through NYC or Long Island on a holiday weekend! The wife and I are just going to the reception in Brooklyn. Without traffic it is a little over 2 hours. Plan to bolt into traffic as soon as they cut the cake.
Isn't it Fleet Week in NYC? Man - I wish I could go! I missed the airshow here last weekend.

Traffic!!!! All summer. Every weekend!!!
As soon as Friday afternoon hit a backup started leaving going toward the ocean and toward the west to Camel back mountain (water park- outlet mall) I-80 and up rte209 towards Port Jervis NY.
I learned last year. It can take you 2 hours to move a mile. Back roads only.

Yeah, those Jerseyites really clog up the roads around Tannersville. As a kid they'd try to find their way around, make a wrong turn past Blakeslee Corners on 309 (many had weekend homes on Arrowhead Lake) and end up in my neck of the woods halfway to Wilkes-Barre.

I came here to say almost the exact same thing. I was just getting our oldest in his cub scout gear since their pack was marching in the parade when I got the call it was cancelled.

At least it eases my wife's guilt over not wanting to go since she is just getting over a pretty bad cold.

You can have the south then. I can't take the humidity.

It's been a weird year for certain, but generally from May-October there's no place I'd rather be - except maybe the Bahamas.

I can't decide if I want to live in an RV or a house boat.

I'd go with an RV, more places you can get around to and go see.

But I don't much like the water.
