    My wife is "office staff" and she is off on Monday.
    Yet, possibly you are correct. Possibly most people will have to work on Monday. Maybe my wife is one of the lucky ones! :)

    I guess I am the luckiest one. I'm a teacher on summer break and I have a wife who although she has a 12 month job, her boss gave her a 4 day weekend.
    If you guys can forgive :angelic: me, I'd be grateful.
    Just pretend my OP was : What will you do this weekend?
    :D

    Took today off too so we are fortunate to stretch it out to a five day weekend. We are headed to a lovely state park on a lake in the mountains. Camping in a tent because I sold our camper last year and have not decided on which one to replace it with. The plan was to set up today, but it is raining buckets and we may just wait until tomorrow to set up. Have had the campsite reserved for a while now.

    Rainy weather in my area on Saturday caused me to water down my plans.
    We only did touristy stuff today.
    Our first stop was "Indian Echo Caverns"
    www.indianechocaverns.com
    Then we went to dinner.....followed by a visit to an old fashioned railroad.....think like "Polar Express".
    www.strasburgrailroad.com
    ............................................after that we drove by Amish horse and buggy folk www.discoverlancaster.com and stopped to admire beautiful/majestic horses and some "moo cows" :cool:
    It was a busy but good day! :)

    Now is my turn @GoofyDad ......I have neighbors whose back yard comes very close to the back of my house. I'm a corner property so my big yard is on the side of my house. The yard directly behind my house is a thin strip....10 yards at most from my kitchen window to the fence separating me from my neighbors.....who have a huge party...lots of beer.....and they are shooting fireworks that make my wife fear that they'll land on our roof and start a fire. Yeah....I totally get your post that I quoted.

    Saturday... went out to dinner with my Daughter and family and had some very dry, but, tasty Shepard's Pie.
    Sunday... Woke up with a mildly sore throat and what felt like the start of a cold. Went to work at 4:30pm til 12:30am, coughing, sneezing and hacking the evening away.
    Monday... pretty much the same thing as Sunday except that I played 18 holes of golf with my SIL and Grandson in the morning.
    Tuesday.... Stayed inside all day and nursed my cold. Not severe, just enough to feel less then tops. Am now listening to the reenactment of the Blitzkrieg, in my neighborhood, also the dogs that are not appreciating the sound affects. But, hey, I've been in a war zone before so it's just memories of my youth.
