I have noticed on Friday nights, there is a little rest time on the Forum. Not many post or replies. I hope it is spent on family time for those that do not have to work. My wife works in an office all week and comes home and cooks or either brings something homes for supper.
I set aside some of my lumber money for her THAT SHE DON'T KNOW ABOUT  :). On Fridays it's her night for steak, Lamb, Shrimp, Crab legs, GRITS  :D or whatever she chooses.
On Fridays, I make myself STOP WORKING at 3 pm to rest and have a shower so I'm ready to go take my wife to a good supper.
Sometimes I have the grill going or have had the smoker going since morning to have supper ready.

Not trying to get personnel but just wondering what's going on on a slow forum FRIDAY NIGHT.

Friday night is just like Monday night. I come in when it gets dark. No grits here. My wife stays at home and cooks for other people. We kinda have to stay here until 6 at night for the Veggie business. Wife gets a litle restless and needs to leave The C Farm behind a few hours each week.

Just got back from the county fair.  Going again tomorrow (Saturday).   Wife and I have been taking rides on the Can-Am Spyder on Friday evenings.  We're trying to find all of the ice cream places within an hours ride to home. ;D  Had homemade ice cream at the fair.  8)

One never knows what a Friday night will bring around here, just like every other night.  This one is a Girl's Night Out.  Linda will be launching into the darkness in about ten minutes to go make the living for us. ;D 8) ;D 8)

Friday night is date night, we go out to eat with friends, then to one of our homes for coffee and desert, and conversation.

We take the family to Summer Sounds, a concert series in our town park, it is AWESOME, this years kick off was Blue Grass, then Steel Drivers (three songs on the "Get Low" Robert Duvall movie sound track) , folk, rock, gospel, blues, jazz, you name it, and many are nationally known groups. park holds about 2000 or so, mostly grass seating in the circular hillside. Unbelievable. FREE. Bring your wine, no smoking most areas, and lots of families. Lots of BIG trees, and a great view of the dome of our court house flying Old Glory.......cant get much better. Starts at 7, done by 9-9:30.

On Fridays I go over to some friends sit around have a few beer talk about the week, shoot the breeze and solve the worlds problems.  :)
Everyone  takes turns making some kind of food to eat or everyone will bring some thing small and pitch in.

Tonight we had grilled fresh buffalo burgers ( that one of the guy raises)and some chips and potato salad.

Tonight was watching the Tigers beat the White Sox to move within a half game of first place. Wish I could find a video of Verlander sawing a guys bat off with a hundred mile an hour fastball. He didnt even swing at it. Check swing and he was left still holding the knob of the bat and looking at it in disbelieve.  :)

Tonight I was on the roof till dark, finishing up a section. Not my favorite choice, but I need the money. Most friday nights are spent with the girlfriend though, relaxing at home or out on a date. This part of summer, lots of Friday nights are spent at the local fairs.

Gotta work overtime to afford the woman sometimes ;)

Had a few of my youngest daughter's friends over for a last get together before they disperse for their first year of college.  Great kids.  A few are staying over.  It's neat to have watched them grow up together.  Nice night.

Irrigating and haying (sort of)  >:(.  Got home and ate a couple ears of sweet corn and some dang good creamy cucumbers my wife fixed last night and listened to the stockcar races a half mile down the road, on a normal summer we would have been there watching them.

Friday nights is when we take the 2 little kids out for take away fish-n-chips or Macca's, last night was special I spent $54 on fresh Jew Fish, "Yamba" King prawns and Balmain Bugs :) and brought them home. I've been allergic to prawns the last couple of years, last night I dosed up on antihistermines and hooked into the "Bugs" as a trial, the car was pointed towards the hospital and we never needed it 8)....I like to be home before 7:30pm for the 2 Friday night televised Rugby League games, Last Night Sea Eagles V Bulldogs 1st up, (mine and my FIL teams respectively) my Sea Eagles went down :(

Friday nights I take my Dad (87) to the Viet Nam Veterans post for supper and he likes the punch boards. Don't know how much longer he will make it but until then if I'm not traveling I'll have supper with Pop.
