    Taking it easy, working with my dog on doggie skills and helping my wife preparing stuff for canning.

    Edit: I forgot, grilling some great looking steaks. Maybe in the rain. But nothing I haven't done before.

    Unloading equipment off my trailer from yesterday. Drilling holes in a receiver hitch for my buddy. Installing ceiling vent in the bathroom. Bathing dogs, clipping nails, cleaning ears. Finally, relaxing with a few beers and working on "Days Go By", by The Offspring.

    At work of course. I don't think I've 'automatically' gotten a single holiday off in the last 5 years.

    At work.

    They pay double on holidays so I just work most holidays.

    Got a lot of things do do around the house today. Once I get going it shouldn't take me more than about 5 hours to get it all done. Then it's Mike's time!

    Packing up some orders I need to ship for my business, putzing around house,then going to check out a possible gig in early afternoon. When holidays fall on a Monday we do the major partying aspect on Sunday so everyone can be fresh for work on Tuesday....had 6 of our 7 kids, their "um friends", one grandchild,3 dogs over. Grilled, drank a few beers, bonfire(rural area) then a pay-per-view movie. Flushed them all out around 2 a.m.:atoz:

    Happy holiday bassigans!
