Over the past 20 years or so, we have made it an annual trek to Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, to see Patricia's dad and his wife. They lived along one of the lakes between Oconomowoc and Delefield for many years, and we would stay at the ranch for a few days....once a year over Thanksgiving, and once usually during the summer months. Bill and Bev sold the house a few years ago, and moved nearer to town, buying a nice 55+ Condo. Patricia and Anissa usually go up for a week in June, and the rest of us would head up over Thanksgiving. This year it will just the 3 of us. Sam has basketball and classes on Monday, he will take care of the animals and house. Hal is teaching this week at Fairborn High School....and will opt out of this trip.
If you have ever driven through the Chicago area....you know it is one of the worst highway systems in America, bar none....Over any Holiday period it is much worse. So this year we have decided to avoid the Thanksgiving traffic. We will head out in the morning, and return to Celina on Monday...just in time for me to take my OHSAA Basketball Test.
Speaking of basketball...tonight I get my first taste of real basketball, driving to Columbus Grove for a JV High School scrimmage. The regular season starts up in a couple of weeks, so I need all the roundball action I can handle before that happens...tonight it begins.
While in Wisconsin, I have access to the Internet, but usually stay as far away from it as possible....a cleansing of the mind, so to speak. So no Internet...just some studying for the upcoming test, a glass or 2 of Brandy, good food, and some football watching....I shall return, God willing, early next week.
