    Doors open at 9:30 & starts at 11:00. I'll probably get there about 6:30-7 so I can get a decent seat

    The statue that is in Title Town currently that has receiver on the back where the name goes will be renovated. It will soon have Drivers name & # it. DD also received a street named after him as well as receiving a key to the city of Green Bay.

    Him & McCarthy got a little choked up but that's to be expected. He was asked if he'd come back as a coach & he said he's more of a family guy. Coaches are here late & I don't think EB(Edgar Bennett)is ready to give up his job. We'll see in about 5-6 yrs.

    Woke up to about 3/4" ice on everything. Chose to take the morning off. Was just outside. Have 4 thigh size diameter branches from 3 different trees down in my yard. Last one just fell which drew me outside. Took down 120' power line feeding my out buildings. Also snapped off the yard light pole. Won't need or have power there until next month. Next time I may go underground except crossing the paved driveway could be an issue. I don't think the frost is out of the ground yet.

    Went outside the other day & I was like wow! I can finally see the grass 95% of the snow had melted. I go to work on 3rd shift & it starts snowing monster size flakes. So much for seeing the grass. I finally got to see thunder snow. Mark that off my bucket list......lol

    So we can expect you maybe for training camp / preseason then?
    Mothers day weekend, Saturday had driving sleet and snow showers along with rain. Sunday night is expecting a hard freeze with frost on the windshields Monday morning. Tuesday low 70's with 80's by Wednesday.

    ^ I came up there for for a visit a couple years ago, and the wife and I decided to go watch an open training camp workout, it actually was kinda warm out (70's). The weather has gone completely wacko lately.

    I agree. But I believe the warm weather is here to stay until about Sept or Oct.

    At 9:30 I got hungry for some cousins subs which I tried the other day & liked. I call & no one answered. Totally crazy. It's Friday & these places are closed. Green Bay needs to stay open a little later

    Just over a yr here in Green Bay & still lovin' it. Going to Fam night tonight & spent close to 75-90 hrs waiting for autographs. No exaggeration. Practice at 8:20 am they left around 8pm. Spent a minimum 10 hrs at Lambeau Field. Longest day was 14 hours. I can see this being a yearly tradition. GO PACK GO!!!
