Over the next couple of weeks I'll conclude my recent stay in Northlandia with a series of posts. This is the first.
Picture perfect late afternoon. We were in a car from Joy to Emerald City. My little iPhone comes through again. More often than not the little thing just can't pull off a good picture, at least not with me at the helm, but every once in a while it does amazingly well.
I was scheduled to go to G-Burg early morning for breakfast with the girls. Woke up to some snow and icy roads. I cancelled out of panic that my truck would slip and slide all the way there.You have any idea how long it has been since I cancelled something because
of the weather? The snowfall didn't last long and it warmed up sufficiently to melt the ice, but it still reminded me of a "no-school" free day.
This was my seat of honor for an afternoon at the North Henderson Community Center. Sunday afternoon watching football, keeping warm with a space heater, and lots of cold beer. Anything better? Well, not many. Thanks, Neighbor Tim. Great, great afternoon.
Oh, and I think the Bears lost.
One thing I still find amazing since my self-exile to Florida. The complete permeation of gambling in Illinois. This is a winning voucher from a machine in Emerald City. Sadly, not mine. I heard how much money one business makes by having them and it is astounding. Surely the state won't be in the red for long!
