For all you “Writing is Fun-damental” junkies (all 10 of you dears) and viewers of SIXTY MINUTES LITE (your imaginary television gets miraculous reception), I am about to hit the road for the homeland of my forefathers; I only had one father not four, but Wisconsin is that destination.
Thanks to wi-fi, I will do a travelogue, in the style of http://www.believersandfaith.com and its “Vagabond Tales”. In the case of “believers”, I visited a different church (or 2) every weekend for 40 weeks.
Not so here, but here is a preview:
Lunch with high school friend who lives in Appleton
2 great days with my wonderful family
My very 1st ever attempt at prime rib
Living & dying with every play of the GB Packer playoff game
600 miles of round-trip smiles
I am positive that I will be coming away with a unique take on this rare mini-vacation from this horrible Illinois winter; with the blinding snow flurries and intolerable wind-chills near freezing.
Wait a minute!!! I am going to places where snow is measured in feet and overnight temps drag the thermometer down to zero or below. Oh well.
Dear Heavenly Father;
“Thank you for lower gasoline prices, a reliable automobile, and the good sense to know east from west from north and south (without the need of GPS)!”
Your faithful servant,
PS It would have been nice to have Florida relatives….. no California, wait Hawaii.
