Fragment Friday - Memorial Weekend Edition

That's MY ball, give it back!

1.  Memorial Day weekend here - a three day weekend. I know lawn mowing is in our future. Maybe a trip to the movies, nothing too exciting.  Have you got any plans?

2.  I'm going to try and work on my Fantastic Garden Puzzle Print wood block this weekend. Hard to decide between carving birds, flowers, or fairy riding Corgis. Or something completely out there. Suggestions?

3. My urge to write never aligns with the weather. When it was rainy, I was uninspired. Now that it's nice out, I want to write, not work in the yard. I suspect the muse likes chaos. 

4.  We're headed into heavy birthday season. It kicks off with eldest child's this week. Hard to think he's growing older. I'm not... not that I know of. Or was that growing up?

5.  Is cooking out on your to do list this weekend? Hamburgers and hot dogs or something more elaborate? What's your favorite side dish? Do you go with iced tea or lemonade or something else?

Merlin exhibiting his dark side.
Kudos to his dentist.

Those dogs always make me smile.
We had a student from the Netherlands in our guestroom last night; tonight we're taking her out to dinner. She's here for the summer, working in Mick's lab. So, our Memorial Day weekend will be one of introducing her to Minnesota at the start of summer. Glad it quit snowing!
#5 - We go with beer. And wine. Dr. Pepper for the under-aged among us.
Have a great long weekend!

Anon - One of Merlin's nicknames is "The Little Red Fury"...

We do the beer-wine thing here too. My baby will be legal for a beer in 6 months. Time flies!

My word, Merlin does look fierce! I wouldn't like to encounter him in that mood...

You sure that's not a were-corgi? :)

Gabriele - Nah, he acts like that to his brother whether there's a full moon or not...
