Because I said I would.......
Well the road trip is behind me. I did good and not so good. For dinner we stopped in to a small bar/restaurant. I opted for the perch dinner. There was no baked option for the perch, it was fried. I ate it anyhow. Not the best choice, but... Read more

It was a dark and stormy night.....
Anyone remember reading that in Charles Schultz' Peanuts? We have had more than a week of gray, cold, gloomy, rainy days. I know it's fall and to be expected, but I really don't like it. Poor Mr Tucker has been listlessly lounging on the couc... Read more
