Man, What a Summer…

Here we go…

So, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything… Been a bit busy and in a tulmult, like everyone else. Laid off. Terminated. Means I’m retired. Actually, the best thing that could have happened to us!

We went to Utah. That was a fun road trip. Low-key, but enjoyable. Was informed, about 4 hours into the trip, that I was retired. That was interesting… However, everything fell into place, because of out research and planning, so, we’re golden. When we arrived home, we started a new chapter in our lives.

The downside to this summer, was, and is, the cancelled events that we were to attend, in our victory lap summer. Memphis. The UK. Minnesota. Two Rivers. So many musical, and tour trips killed by Covid. We’ve been able to attend small, outdoor, distancedevents, and that’s been nice, but…

There have been home projects. Yard projects. Recording projects. Cookouts with friends. So, we are keeping busy. Seems, that there’s more to do now, than when I worked!

Celebrating our 25th anniversary was a wonderful milestone with a wonderful woman. I am a very lucky man… Onto another (as many as possible) years…

Briggs Mansion Ghost Hunt

Sunday evening, March 11th, we went on a ghost hunt at the Briggs mansion. It was built in 1862. The docent mentioned that, when the 3″ thick front doors were hung, Abraham Lincoln had been president a year. Wow…

We listened to history for 15 minutes, then wandered and explored for an hour.

Then we met back in the parlor and dining rooms, to listen to two mediums of good report, tell us their impressions.
Quite the evening, if nothing else, from a historical pov. A lovely old house, with more to it than meets the eye…

January Adventure

HI
Started off with getting to work this morning @ 5am, cst. Too early for most normal people to be up and ‘at ’em’, but, that way I’m home to still have the whole day yet. Getting ready to torture ourselves @ the gym. Haven’t been there in a week. The weather and work get in the way, sometimes.Then, this afternoon, we are headed off to Madison Wi with my sister for dinner, @ Bluephies, , our favorie Madison restaurant.In the evening, Maggie and Jeannine are going to the Overture Center to see psychic Lisa Williams. I’m going to be across the street @ a coffee shop w/ my macbook, downing excellent latte’s.  Should be an interesting evening. One must liven up January…
