Yesterday was opening day of the Cactus League schedule for The Cubs. NOT an auspicious beginning. But. It was heavenly to be able to listen to a Cubs game, on the radio, as we closed in on Chicago from the South, after a long two days of driving.
Driving? From the South? Glad you asked.
LM (Love Muffin) and I were returning from a heavenly week in Florida, spent with PattiKen and husband, Bill. More about that, and pictures, as the week goes on. What I will say right now though, is that Patti and Bill are two of the kindest, most gracious people I've met, and Annie and I will always be grateful to them for the lovely week they showed us.
Tiger Woods has a big ... boat. It's cool. I've seen it - from a distance.
South Florida is GREAT this time of year. *80* and sunny almost every day. Chicago? Not so much.
Driving back from Florida was fine - the first day. The second day, we woke to clouds and blowing drizzle in Manchester, TN, and the farther north we drove the worse the weather got. Ultimately, a thunderstorm in northern Tennessee and into Kentucky mad driving rather dicey. But, we made it.
It's back to work and weather. At least I have some recent memories to run to when the weather gets bad.
