Hey ya’ll, it’s Independence Day here in the good ol’ US of A. Like many of us, I’m headed out to a barbeque later in the afternoon, but before that I have a full day. First, I’m sure Muggs will get me up at the ass-crack of dawn as he seems to like the early sun. Then I’m hitting the YMCA to spin (hopefully more of) my ass off on one of a roomful of brand-spankin’ new bikes. Seriously, they’re pretty awesome, all computerized and everything, so it will yell at me when I’m not keeping up with the drill sarg…er class instructor as well as do my laundry and feed the dog. 🙂 Then, I’m running home to wipe the grime off before joining fellow amateur radio enthusiasts to help Berkeley Fire do a Fire Patrol for a few hours. What does that mean? Heck if I know as I’ve never did it before, but it sounds fun! Then I’m throwing together the stuff I am taking for the aforementioned barbeque and heading over to the par-tay. And I want to be home before the fireworks because this is Muggs’ first boom-y holiday and I have no idea how he’ll react.
My fellow Americans, what are you doing today?
