Had a planned job yesterday for my neighbor, kid in tow. Today I slept in till 11ish. I try to do that at least once. Ended up with a kitchen drain two blocks from my house, weekend rate still applies.

Saturday one of my kidís friendís mom invited my kid to a superhero party at the opera house, I did the grocery shopping while my wife and her mom, friend and her mom did the chocolate walk here in town. Just as I was done at the store I got a call from my wife saying her mom wanted to go to our local distillery/brewery for a glass of wine. I got there first, ordered lunch from the taco truck and hung out in my local home brew store till my food was done, then joined them upstairs for my lunch and a beer.

Every weekend is different here. Work when I have to, spend as much time with my family as I can, brew, shoot/hunt/fish when I can and relax when I can.

We do like everyone else a mad dash to do groceries, the costo parking lot packed crazy. We have a restaurant lunch, spread out the Valentine thing on 2 week end, with a trip fancy expensive chocolate place. Make our self a good dinner and watch movies.

And of all through out the day people calling to have plumbing work done on friday night and saturday for charity prices because most of the hack ads have been taken down!

A normal weekend is filled with paper work.

This past weekend, I watched my youngest son swim at his college conference meet. That was about 3 hrs east of here. My wife went but I couldn’t.

Then drove an hour west on Saturday to have lunch with my oldest son. Always good to see my boys when I can.

Gas. 120cc and up. So 6-10 cubic inches? My 170cc Sukhoi is 10+' wingspan. This is a stock photo.

Engine is 60-70 lbs thrust, plane is 40 lbs so vertical is unlimited.
