Where HAVE I been?

Published on January 19 2009

Yes there really *is* still a blog here, although you'd never know it for all of the posting going on... I plead busy. So what have I been doing? Well, this last weekend involved a little trip to Minneapolis to see some members of the Bobcat Nation. dsc_2515-1 Seven of us, along with various spouses and friends, made the trip to have Guinness and Fish&Chips at Brit's Pub in the downtown. A most excellent gathering of most EX-cellent people!! Since it was to be a leisurely trip home the next morning, I decided to make a stop at what had always looked to be an interesting shopping stop. dsc_2519 Yeah. IKEA. You will notice, of course, that the enormous parking lot is completely empty. That's because apparently everybody in Minnesota sleeps in on Sunday mornings. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, opens until 10 am. When I was finally able to go in, after waiting for a patient lady who would not open the rope barrier until 10:00:01, I found home shopping nirvana. I think "overwhelming" is the appropriate word. I made a few small purchases, and grabbed a stack of catalogs before heading towards the sale bins near checkout. In one of these bins I found this duvet and pillowcase set, on sale for half-price: murder-scene Uh-huh. Just what I want on my bed-- a murder scene complete with heart monitor graphics. I think maybe 90% off would have been a better price. Sigh.

You do realize that you said "old" Bobcats. Freudian slip?

Hey Shawn;

The food all looked pretty good, but "when in England, do as the English" so I had fish & chips. It was good, but not much different from regular friday fish fries except that I didn't have to ask for the vinegar. The food was about average in price, I'd say-- not cheap, but not crazy expensive. I think you'll like the place.

And Scott, I had a GREAT time with the old Bobcats. Now I have a yen to go to the big reunion next summer.

I have to laugh when I see this. It reminds me of when we were in Bermuda trying to sell our house in California. Due to some drug deal gone sour down the street, there was gunfire and one of the participants was shot and ran down the street and conveniently expired in my driveway. I had the pleasure of seeing my house on the local news paper front page with the whole CSI crew in action. I imagine there was a nice taped out body pattern on my driveway. Aside from the tragedy for the poor sap who was killed, California required that I disclose that someone was killed on my property. Unrelated as my property was to the actual crime, I had to comply which made selling my house near impossible. Gotta love California. Land of fruits and nuts!
BTW hope you had fun with the Bobcats!
