The Trailer - Thanksgiving Weekend - October 5-8

October 9, 2007 @ 10:15

This picture says it all. The Tiki Bar has become the focal point of our summers and yesterday we had to dismantle it for the winter.

The lights and accessories come down, the roof panels come off and we pack it all away with heavy hearts.

Closing weekend it always a bit of a bummer, but this year it was made a little more palatable with the warm weather. We've had years when we closed down with flurries swirling around our heads. This year it was close to 30 degrees and humid.

We managed to cram quite a bit into the final weekend. A Tiki Bar get together on Friday night and our big Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday night at the lodge. After the dinner we were in the hot tub and then jumped into the cold lake and it was the most exhilarating feeling you could imagine.

On Sunday we played some bocce ball and then barbequed steaks and salmon over the open fire - and yesterday we closed up - almost - some of the other guys are going up again next week so I left a couple of job undone so I could make one last trek before facing the fact that winter's coming.

I should also mention that we held our annual awards ceremony on Saturday night during our Thanksgiving dinner. We recognize those who've committed and accomplished over the summer.

This year's big winner was my lovable neighbour Jerry Richard. He set an awards record capturing seven while eclipsing the previous record of six held my Brian Collins.

Jerry is quite the character with a heart of gold.

You have to be a pretty good sport to take the pounding that Jerry did Saturday night, but he took it all in stride and I'm sure looks forward to next year when we make someone else the target.

Dan Duran is begging for it.

Wow everyone, it's Thanksgiving Day! I'm enjoying my extra day off, and I am planning to make something fun that will probably involve a bike ride and seeing something new in Spanish Fork I haven't seen yet.
You write something new at Thanksgiving?

Lindsay Lohan Is going to Rehabilitate Now, She will be out by Friday. Precisely what it takes is a few days of feeling "good", and she's going to imagine she will do it by herself. Already been through it... done that! (Am i able to get her physician's contact number? I have got ADD).

Lindsay Lohan just isn't going to any place that will stop her from filming, so once more, I call Bull crap to this serious rigorous inpatient rehabilitation garbage. There is no way Lindsay Lohan or her parents will lose this opportunity to make bucks. And plainly she won't despise that scram bracelet quite enough to quit the jack and coke and live without stuffing sh*t up her sordid nose.

Lindsay Lohan Is going to Rehab Today, thirty days later she is going to be back at it. A sense of shame to the "star struck" process of law for empowering this lass to mess up her lifetime. Right now she is deserving of consequence not rehab.

It is Embarrassing that we allow Extremist Foreign Political Characters on our soil following years of hatred towards our country. United states should escape the UN and show every one of those extremists what we think of there idiotic ideology. Qaddafi, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, and many other have far to long been made welcome to the Sacred and Magnificent nation. I say Enough will do, Close our doors to Hateful Bastards and Say No longer to the U.N. Leave, your NOT nor have never been welcome.
