The Dreaded Cancelled Flight

....is really a blessing in disguise....

I've already had a nice trip, and get to spend extra time with my Mom on Mother's Day, so it's win/win all around, except for missing work in the morning, which, well, yeah..... win/win, like I said.

Anyhow, got to see both of my grandmothers for brunch today, which included Walker Bros' Apple Pancakes, as well as lox, corned beef and bagels.

Yesterday, we had lunch at Bob Chinn's Crabhouse with the Reagors.  Easily the best Snow Crab I've ever had.  Biggest meatiest legs that I've ever seen, and I have Snow Crab fairly frequently at my local Oyster Bar.  Such a significant difference.  Really the best around if you like seafood.

Chinese food for dinner last night, and now my extra night affords me a Lou Malnatti's Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza.  A good Chicago Style hot dog and a nice cold Beer in the Bleacher's at Wrigley and I would have really hit the mother load.  Essentially, my own little taste of Chicago.

Even stopped at the Trout and Grouse fly shop yesterday to "gear up" a bit for my summer adventure.  They just recently moved to a new shop, which they really did a fantastic job with.  Was nice to see Curt and Peter, who took good care of Craig and I as usual.

So, I've ended this great week with a bang, and I'm getting ready for a busy upcoming week... a few softball games, carpeting being installed on Tuesday, hopefully have my house on the market by the end of the week, which will be culminated by a visit from Kari, which I'm really looking forward to.

Anyhow, hope all had a Happy Mother's Day.

Be Well


P.S.  To all of my Guitar Hero playing friends.  No, I'm not apologizing for calling you losers.  You're still losers.  Apparently, I'm just more loser than I thought.  Damn addicting piece of crap.

Thank you for allowing me a glimpse into your world. You are gifted at story telling and I will always enjoy reading how your life is going.

I'm glad you are breaking free and a bit envious.

Still a bit sad since reading this shows another totally wonderful side of you that I didn't have the good fortune to know...probably because I yelled too much (but I SWEAR I wasn't yelling, it just sounds that way sometimes...I have strong lungs :) ).

YOU'RE the loser, loser.
