Makin' some lists and checkin' 'em twice

"I have a little list," sang Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner. Today is a day of making lists.

I have completed the grocery list for our Philmont trip out and back: everything for the trip going to be bought; non-perishables for the trip back to be bought now, with subsidiary list of perishables to be bought on our leaving Philmont.

I have completed the Crew grill-off list for the potato salad, trifle, etc., that the Crew will be assembling Saturday morning before the Community Grill-off: everything but the secret ingredients, which Deanne is procuring.

I have completed my personal grocery list as a competitor for said grill-off.

I have a little list of things to be bought for the church picnic on Sunday (main item: two beef packer briskets, already ordered from the Butcher Block). I have already made the barbecue sauce.

Today is the day I also need to re-check crew and personal gear lists and start final assembly of gear and paperwork (= "stuff" and "nonsense") to be taken to Philmont.

I live by to-do lists, shopping lists, outlines, and calendars. I even have to schedule spontaneity. If I'm a good boy, I can have some fun later on today.
