    I for one will be taking my boat out to Eagle Lake...with the kids and dog in tow...wanna burn some of that Iraqi gas...lol...this will be Saturday and Sunday....then on Monday the 4th will have a bbq at home with the kids and watch the fireworks and parade...I'm kinda lucky to live in a small town...the parade is just a block away and I can see the fireworks from my driveway....so anyone have any suggestions for the bbq besides the standard burgers,dogs or steak...open for suggestions! :cheers2:

    hey angel,bbq chicken and chops are great and something a little different!!!


    we are celebrating the 4th/my younger brother's b day on the third with my family,and on the fourth are probably going to grill out at home and do a few fireworks.My neighbors will probably keep us fairly entertained since they have been shooting stuff off for about two weeks allready! I'll probably take the kids to a parade too.I love the fourth of July!!!!

    I will be drinking my very first batch of Home Brewed Beer. :beer:

    And of course I will be Grilling Steaks [​IMG] and going to the parade [​IMG]and watching fireworks and getting lucky [​IMG] and did I mention beer? [​IMG]

    Wow did I say getting lucky? Man, I gotta go easy on the ol keyboard...... or the beer.

    On a serious note, just like Veterans Day & Memorial Day, I will also visit the cemetary and attend Morning Colors.

    We will be grilling out with another family (my best friend), seven kids between us! The kids have their annual water balloon fight, and s'more roast. Our friends get a whole lot of fireworks to shoot off in their backyard (to frighten the cows and deer ;) ). I'm in charge of eats... Ribeyes for us, hot dogs for the kids, corn on the cob, watermelon, potato casserole, Jello jigglers, Robert Redford dessert. My friend has a Bunn slushie machine, so the kids will have slushies. Just hanging out and talking.

    Alternative to steaks.... one year we made chicken shish kabobs, marinated in beer, butter, soy sauce, and Mrs. Dash. Skewered with onions, green peppers, & mushrooms. Good stuff!

    My job?? <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008_ZNfox000' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/23/23_30_121.gif' alt='' border=0></a>
    Or do you mean Mm's? It's HOT here...96 with 70% humidity. Breathing takes effort. The week of the 4th, the band is opening for Grand Funk & The Rascals. Gig is outside. Beating the drums in this heat is no picnic.

    a little side note here: I realize that there are many others,that have to work in the heat, and I feel sorry for them, too. And those serving in the military, well, all this pales in comparison. But too many times people think that all these guys do is get on a stage & have fun.
