Happy Memorial Day!

After a morning out on the lake swimming, skiing and wake boarding, we came back for a quick lunch before resuming “The Great Table Rock Horseshoe Pitching Contest.” It’s a two-day, double-elimination, round-robin affair with “seniors” and “juniors” divisions. Surprisingly, Keon is leading the seniors division – and somewhat less surprisingly Austin leads the juniors with Dub in hot pursuit.
We’ll have a big outdoor dinner in Rick and Keon’s rock garden this evening with BBQ ribs, burgers, hot dogs and, of course hand-crank ice cream. There’ll be some very tired kids tonight 🙂
We hope Memorial Day finds you safe, healthy and having fun – as we remember the sacrifices made for all of us by the brave men and women of our armed services.

Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful Memorial day holiday!

While we’re eating burgers and drinking beer and generally having a great time, let’s never forget the reason for the Holiday.
“Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces.”


It’s Wednesday evening and I’m pre-posting this because we’ll be spending the weekend at our cabin at Table Rock. School is over for the year – David is home from California – and we’re all looking forward to a relaxing long weekend at the lake. We’ll give you a full report after we get back on Monday evening. In the mean-time, Cal and Alex tell me they have a whole bunch of videos they’ll be posting (from their i-phones) over the weekend.
We hope all of you will have a safe, happy Holiday weekend. xoxo
Ben and David
