Opened the store the next morning, then headed back out later that night for birthday fun at the Bally for Matt and Shaw. Received a phone call from Anthony which was exciting. Some random people showed up later in the evening which is always fun! We didn't close the place down, but we stayed exactly as long as we should have. I was able to get a little sleep, and i was happy to see the people that were there.
I worked through wednesday the 4th. Went to Jeremy's for a rained out cook-out that night. Was still a good time though. Watched fireworks going off all around us. I love fireworks! Came back to marshall and met friends uptown for a few drinks, then back for a dip in Nathan's pool. Apologies to Andrea for waking her up in the middle of the night with all the commotion when she had to work the next morning. The cops came to tell us to stop with the fireworks because some neighbor was mad. Oh well, all of Harold's belongings were destroyed at that point anyway. Including his hands. Those burns looked painful!
Thursday night, i went out to the park where my family was camping. Dad grilled steaks. Mom made yummy corn and potatoes. My parents are terrific outdoor cooks! My Phat Dog Josie spent the night which i think she really enjoyed. She got to take several walks with my Dad who loved it as much as she did! Got up early friday morning and headed back out to the campground for a wonderful breakfast of eggs, toast, hash browns, bacon and sausage. They totally went all out! Spent a little while out on the lake with my brother which was great! Headed back home for a while to get myself cleaned up and ready to go to John's baseball game. As we all know, i love me some baseball.
Saturday, got up and mowed. Mom stopped by for a little bit to see if my needs were met. Parents are the greatest! Later that evening, i went to Steve and Brooke's wedding out at the park. It was very nice. They had a keg of beer that kept me occupied most of the evening. I drank a little too much, and thanks to Scott and Edna, i got home safely without driving myself.
Tonight, i went to see Transformers with Harold and Jeremy. I can definitely see why people would see it more than once! I still need to go with the boys to watch it. We'll do that soon.
After work on monday, i hit BW3's for Chris Jones's birthday. Stayed out a little later than i'd planned, but it was a fun time and definitely worth it.
