Why Live Here in Northeast Illinois

Friends are always saying that we're retired, why don't we move to Florida or Arizona or some place else.  Well, despite horrendous property taxes and gas prices (still $4.16 in Fox Lake because of the recent spike, see the last two days entries in my Down Da Road I Go Blog), this is still a fun place to live.

Taking a look at what we've done since I got back:

JULY 24TH, WEDNESDAY

Movie double feature:  "Ted" and "The Dark Night Rises."  Tommy's for $10 pizza and $1 bottles.

JULY 25TH, THURSDAY

Train to Chicago and breakfast at Lou Mitchell's and Route 66 walk with Dave Clark and Denny Gibson.  NTN at Snuggery in Union Station.  Buck Charcoburgers and mug of root beer at Dog 'N Suds and NTN at J's.

JULY 26TH, FRIDAY

Movie "The Amazing Spiderman", shopping, Sunset over Fox Lake at Stormy Monday's deck.  American Legion.

JULY 27TH, SATURDAY

Watched Terry and Greg Spizzirri play on deck and tiki bar of Docks in Wauconda, overlooking Bang's Lake during the afternoon.   C Factor Band at Captain's Quarters, Tommy's.

JULY 28TH, SUNDAY

Soda playing at Captain's Quarters on Fox Lake during the afternoon.  Tommy's.
