Started smoking around 4:30.....
I took them off around 7:00 and will "package" them up for their last stages. Fry them for about 40 seconds to a minute and then they go for a spin in the sauce....

Went on a ride this evening down Hwy 7 to Jasper and then over to Ponca and then back Hwy 43 into Harrison. i stopped a couple of places and snapped some pictures. I also saw a couple of baby elk just outside of Ponca, but I wasn't in a position to stop and get any pics. It was a nice ending to a relaxing day.
I spent most of the early afternoon doing yardwork which gave me some time to remember all of the great things about my dad. This is the first Father's Day without him, and I think about and miss him each day. I try to do things in my life that I think would make him proud or laugh. I believe he was an excellent role model for me and I feel blessed to have him as a dad...

Heather and I went over to Eureka Springs for a few hours last weekend for Blues Fest. Caleb was spending the time with Britney so we thought we would take a ride on the bike. BJ and Sara were over there too so we met up with them, had lunch, walked around for a bit and then headed back to H-town.

1) It was yellow
2) It was yellow
3) We called it the "Cabana Banana" (because it was yellow, did I mention?)
4) Boats sink without the plug
I don't remember how long we had the boat or even the time frame that we had it. I guess it was the early 80's, because I do remember having to listen to "Ebony and Ivory" ALL THE TIME on the way to the lake.
I haven't thought much about the Cabana Banana in a while, at least not since I gave up my version of the Cabana Banana, but there is a boat in town that is for sale and when I drove past it I had to snap a picture. I'm sure Mom and Kelly will tell me how similar/different this "sighting" of the Cabana Banana is from the original....
Mom and I went to go see it over Memorial Day weekend. Dad was always a big Star Trek fan and I, in turn, became one too. I haven't see all of the original Star Trek TV series episodes (before my time of interest) but I've seen most everything since. All of the motion pictures and the Next Generation TV series for a while.
The new Star Trek was a great movie. I enjoyed the re-casting of the characters. Kirk, Spock, Bones, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov all did great jobs. Aside from the nostalgia of the characters; the plot, action and graphics were all very entertaining. This movie certainly lays the groundwork for another generation of Trekies.
When available on DVD, I will be making the purchase....
One note, this is one of the few science fiction movies that made the "in space" scenes slient. That usually doesn't make for good movies and it is something they only did a few times, but I certainly noticed it and appriciated it. Also, there is quite a bit of fighting in the movie, it certainly earned it's PG-13 rating.

Crawdad Days was last weekend in Harrison. It's billed as a "Music Festival", but rarely does the music interest me. Mainly it is good for the rides for the kids and the vintage cars. I didn't get a lot of pictures, but there were plenty of cars around the square, some of them didn't look like they had been driven since they were built. Anyway, Caleb had a good time riding the rides for 4 hours!!! Ah the energy of youth....

If you ever go to Vegas and get to visit the surrounding area, be sure to drive through Spring Mt. Ranch. It is a beautiful little ranch with an interesting history smack dab in the middle of the desert. Be careful though, apparently, the burros don't care much for traffic regulations and the horses are pissed.
