People ask me why I don't travel a whole lot during the summer. Well, being retired has something to do with it. Plus, there is so much to do around here.
An example would be last weekend.
THURSDAY, AUGUST 6TH-- Boating. Yardwork. drive to Antioch, Illinois, for their weekly It's Thursday concert and saw the Blooze brothers (think Blues brothers). They also had a car show.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 7TH-- Shopping in McHenry. Yardwork and the American Legion.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 8TH-- American Legion picnic.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 9TH-- Rally By the Lake Car and Motorcycle Show at the Fox Lake Lakefront Park. Then went to Johnsburg for the St. John's Parish Fest and saw the band New Odyssey.
Left that early and went over to Veterans Park in McHenry for the annual Keep the Spirit of '45 Alive event honoring our World War II veterans. Along with honoring these people, there was a big band and an Andrews Sisters trio. I am writing about this in my World War II blog.
Stopped at Sunnyside tavern on the way home.
