Good-Timin' It Here Last Weekend-- Part 1: Bar-Hoppin' 'N Fish Fryin'

Again, people often ask us why, if we are retired like we are, why we don't go on vacations often during the summer.  Well, we sure have a lot to do around here.

THURSDAY, JUNE 15

Took the boat key and plug over to Mike.  We always forget to put them in when we bring them in to summerize the boat.  It's a tradition.  And, no plug = boat sinks.  I bought flowers at Ace and Menard's in Antioch.

Did some yardwork and went to Half-Times to check out their newly opened addition (and enjoy the $1 pints).  Met a couple from where I used to deejay back in 1983, Neptune's Cove on Fox Lake  (I wrote about them in my Down Da Road I Go Blog last week.)

Closed up the day at Sunnyside.

FRIDAY, JUNE 16

More yardwork and we went to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, a big tourist town about 20 miles away from us.  We had the delicious fish fry at Popeye's on Geneva Lake with that great (but semi-blocked during the summer by the outside umbrellas) view.

We then stopped at Donovan's Reef in Twin Lakes, Wis., for happy hour (all drinks half price) and then went to The Grove in Spring Grove, Illinois and ran into old friends, Bob and Tracy, and talked with them inside and went outside to watch the entertainer on an absolutely perfect night.
