I have about 600 yards to pour tonight and then it will be the lake with our best friends for the rest of the weekend.

I am ready for this week to end.

Florida Keys, every day is a holiday. Some there are just less people around.
They don't call it paradise for no reason.

I remember the nights into the morning on a trowel machine with a 5 gallon bucket before the dash brush and water was needed it was ice and beer. Damn that was tough work, I hope you get "finished" early

just had 8 yards of mulch dropped in my driveway this afternoon.. Spreading that and staining my shed should occupy the better part of my weekend. Am sure to work in a few cold ones and a cigar, though. First time in a while we aren't at the beach for Memorial Day but I'm looking forward to having these projects done.

We're having a block party in the hood.

I'll probably set a personal record for laps around the lake with a tube in tow

Holiday weekends are one of our most interesting work periods.
The calls come in for pumpouts of either the wrong fuel in the wrong tank or to much gas in the rod holders.
