About That Weekend-- Part 3: A Wake and A HOT Party
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
Drove to Crystal Lake for the meeting of the McHenry County Civil War Round Table discussion group at the Panera Bread Company. Today's topic was Civil War innovations. I had a list of all naval innovations (see my Running the Blockade Blog for the list).
Came home then Liz and I went to Terry Spizzirri's wake in Wauconda. Our weekends in the area will be a lot less fun now that we won't be able to see him. He was quite the performer, good at music across the horizons as he liked to describe it. Talked with his nephew Gregg who performed with him.
We came home and then went to Kenny's house in Richmond for a party. Great food and Mitch performed an acoustic show, but, man was it hot.
Came home and watched TV (and stayed in the air conditioned house) Watched Georgia win and Iowa lose.
