This weekend on April 15th my nieghbors, freinds and family are having a tax day party. I’m doing a BBQ turkey and it’s sitting in it’s brine as I write and I’ll take over acase of Homemade lager (Tax-Free) of Dark and pale types. Huzzah! the pale lager will be ready in time. We will have a professional DJ and some incredible gardeners. Folks that refurbish bikes and those into organic gardening. Plus a professional BBQ’er and a very eclectic group of all ages. Everyone else should be bringing everything else “Potluck style” . They are good about getting a little bit of everything.
This is a great way to know your neighbors and building your own little tribe. Folks are relaxed but working together to make the project happen. Having several brewers, gardeners, and folks doing BBQ gives you a nice place to start and share. Plus it’s not all Doom and Gloom and if you keep focusing on how bad things are and don’t take some positive actions you will burn out. I know I take a bit of joy in giving the one finger salute to the PTBs in even a small way!
We are going to have some good music, food, beer and fun in spite of the IRS on taxday. No government intervetion needed for us to be happy and have some fun!
