I decided to stop at the Vinyl Revolution on my way to the McHenry Civil War Round Table discussion group meeting in Crystal Lake and left early. Unfortunately, the line was already around the corner and the place wasn't yet open. And, I really hate lines.
I hate lines, so continued on my way to Crystal Lake. I was running early, so stopped at McDonald's for a breakfast biscuit and then went to the Barnes & Noble bookstore on Northwest Highway (US-14) and bought a Blue & Gray magazine featuring the Battle of Bentonville and the Russian Navy and World War II magazine featuring the Sullivan Brothers.
One thing that does my heart good is seeing all the vinyl records they now sell. Sadly, though, they are all in the $20+ range, more than I like to pay. I went through Barnes & Nobles's sale CDs, but didn't buy any.
Then, it was on to Panera Bread for the discussion group. Today's topic was April 1865.
