What are your Labor Day weekend plans?

For those of you that actually have a Labor Day (that's Labour Day in Canadian if there is such a thing) what are you going to do?

I plan to either paddle the river or go for a bike ride on Sat. then have friends over for a cookout. On Sun. I am doing a 50 mile group ride then paddling the tandem canoe with my daughter to a party at a friends home on another river. On Mon. I hope to do a family bike ride.

So what are you doing?

Not sure yet. I am suppose to be doing work right now, but its art class so yea. I was thinking of building up a bike...


edit: I may, if the weather allows, go on a long stretch of highway, and just cruise with the windows down. Engine purring at 3k rpms, 75mph, music blasting.

Sat: Wake up early to see the meteor shower. Taking my friend and her new roadie bike riding, and perhaps help her with a few maintenance basics
Sun: Hopefully get a very early start and take off somewhere by myself for a few hours. Don't know if it will be the roadie or the Kona.
Mon: Back to work...

Friday: sneaking out on time today and either riding the bike or playing tennis
Saturday: early morning bike ride (20-25 miles), then helping out on the latest home renovation project
Sunday: ditto
Monday: ditto; but will probably come in to work for a little while to get a head start on next week, which promises to be a busy one

The cheetos were me, the prOn was him. I think we're safe because he and I will never mingle while doing those things.
