Things are looking good for taking my son’s BSA troop on a river trip. No I’m not telling you which river, go find your own river.

Looking for a quiet summer this year. Last summer was very busy with grandnephew’s birth, nephew’s wedding and my son’s wedding all in a row.

I need shoulder surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff. Going to the Indy 500, a few Reds and Cubs games. Mrs. henkster & I will probably go to Houston to visit her family (and do some shooting).

Our second son is between his junior and senior year, and if he lands an internship in his field, we are going to officially be empty nesters as he is not likely to live any signifcant time at our house again.

I’m going to enjoy the gift of warmth that doesn’t cost me anything to produce. I’m for sure going to enjoy that big inland sea called “lake” Michigan that I didn’t even bother to go to last summer.

I just got laid off so I plan to have fun in the high country. On and off road motorcycles, my MR2 (known as my "race car" because I took it to High Plains Raceway on a couple of lapping days).

We will probably climb a 14teener or two. If you have time while in Colorado, drive to the top of Mt. Evans. The highest paved road in America. It is fun to watch the kids turn blue at 14,250 MSL.

Pick up son from his BS camp in CO, head to Oregon for a week, drive back to TX via Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore. If my contract is renewed in the next month for one additional year, I'll add a few stops to it. If not, we'll keep it basic, yet we'll still have a great time.

Best vacation I ever had was last year. Two week road trip with my 11YO son, drove to Vegas via Southern Utah. Horeseback riding near Bryce Canyon and in Monument Valley, canyoneering/rappelling near Zion NP. The rest of the family joined us in Vegas for a few days. Before splitting up, we enjoyed the Standing on a Corner Park in Winslow, AZ. Drove home via Sedona and Tombstone, last stop was Roswell.

Get a dental implant and if possible go to the MVPA convention/ show in Louisville. If Kentucky doesn’t happen then is the ragged old Willys jeep, the questionable CJ7 project and a ragged 77 blazer to play with. Also go and try to make stock photo and video that I make a few bucks on sometimes.

I will be celebrating the high school graduation of my younger daughter. A group of about a dozen of us will be enjoying an all-inclusive vacation to Riviera Maya in June.

In August we’ll be attending the annual River Regatta in the Laughlin/Bullhead City area.

Heading to Cabo in mid May to celebrate me and my best friend’s 50th b-day (we’ve been friends since kindergarten) and my sister’s 60th. First vacation in 2 years so it is needed badly.
Other than that, minor league and college baseball, golf, landscaping and seeing Larry the Cable Guy in a couple weeks.

I'm staying at home to take care of my large container veggie/fruit garden. I have put a huge amount of work and money in this first container garden, and I'm not leaving it. The hard work is over. I hope to sit outside on the deck with the roof over it so the Texas sun won't destroy me, with a glass of iced tea, and watch the veggies and fruits develop. No trip would be as enjoyable as that.

Masters next week. Colorado skiing and golfing the next week. Multiple Bahamas trips for work. Maybe a golf trip to Ireland this summer with my son. Divorce is final, life is good.

Celebrating my daughter’s 18th birthday and the end of her child support. YEAH!!

Also completing the brake system and suspension of my Porsche restoration. The $700 a month I won’t have to pay for my daughter’s child support will help this effort greatly.

chickens that lay extra large eggs

Egg size relates to the age of a chix; older birds produce bigger eggs.

Some chickens lay larger eggs than others. The Swedish Flower Hen (which I’m getting) lays an extra large or jumbo egg when they mature. All pullets lay smaller egss for a short period before they reach full maturity but different breeds lay different sizes.

Well.... since I just started my new job at a “big box” store (yay me!)I will be working my tush off (literally) in hopes that at the end of May, I will be among those kept on as a “regular” employee and not “seasonal”. As for the summer - I hope to get to spend some time at the beach with my hubby in between shifts at work :) I’m just so thankful to be working, I don’t really care if we don’t do anything “interesting” just so long as the bills are paid and everybody remains healthy.
