Lost the Gas Guess, But Got My Chili and a Blizzard Beach Bash

I was really shocked to see that gas in the Fox Lake area was still $3.90.  Still way too exoensive, but any old port in a gas storm.

We did meet up with friends at Squaw Bar and got to sample 12 different chilis.  Now that is good eatin'.  And, I voted for favorite, but only could chose three.  I liked 'em all.

Then, went to Captain's Quarters for the Blizzard Beach Bash put on by the Fun on the Fox website and the Chain Crawl.  We got signed up for the 2013 Summer Chain Crawl and also signed a petition protesting the planned $30 Fox Waterway Commission sticker increase.  We already pay way too much for way too little.

Enjoyed the $2.50 Coronas and $2 cheeseburger and fries.

On the way home we listened to the cassette tape I'd made of Wendy Rice's Saturday Morning Flashback Show on WXRT from two weeks ago when she went back to 1968.  Perfect timing as she played the Beach Boy's "Do It Again."  If any song can get you in a Summer state of mind, that one sure can.

Then, the Steve Miller Band played "Living in the USA."  That part about "Somebody give me a cheeseburger" hit home after we'd had those $2 cheeseburgers.
