That’s goodbye in Japanese, but I’m not going away for long. Nana’s Whimsies is taking a few days off. My blog will return next Monday, presuming I haven’t been having so much fun that I’m too pooped to write. In the meantime, here are just a few thoughts…..
Look at Those Cheeks
During my sisters’ recent visit to Nebraska, a cousin gave this photo to Bec. We quickly identified it as our brother Dave. As in Dave-I-Won’t-Go-On-Amusement-Park-Rides-Because-It’s-Only-A-Matter-Of-Time. His sisters took one look at this photo and realized that his worrying started as a mere infant….
Some Kind of Fun
Yesterday Bill took the day off from working on the house and we undertook a little adventure. We took the (relatively) new light rail line to the western suburbs and ate lunch at a restaurant that serves Chicago hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, and all manner of Chicago-originated junk food. The owners even have the Chicago schtick down pat. Don’t, for example, ask for a fork for your Italian beef, and heaven only help you if you ask for ketchup on your hot dog….
After we finished lunch, we took the light rail to a sports bar just down the block from where the Broncos were handily defeating the Dallas Cowboys, and watched with some of the other people who couldn’t afford a ticket…..
All in all, it was a very fun way to spend the day. And a Bronco win is always AWESOME.
Word About Bees
Dagny said though the queen bee is clearly still alive, but sadly there will be no honey this year. The bees are apparently preparing to hibernate. We will have to wait until 2018 for D’s Honey.
Have a good week.
