Why Go Anywhere Else?-- Part 1: The Civil War and Enjoying the House and Yard
Again, I get asked often why we don't really go away much during June to August. Why go anywhere else when summer vacation is right here. Between boating, when it is not flooding, and all the outdoor festivals going on, I'd just as soon stay right here.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 8
I dug up hostas for Kelly as I am changing the flower beds around. Drove to Woodstock, Illinois, and saw the movie "Dunkirk" for a second time (one of those you need to see on a really big screen) and then did some research in the Woodstock Library (I love to do research) and met some McHenry Civil War Round Table people at Three Brothers Restaurant for dinner and went to the Round Table Meeting and heard about a real big Union scoundrel by the name of Ruben Hatch who was responsible for the overloading of the SS Sultana which blew up and killed at least 1200 returning Union prisoners.
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9
Enjoyed the FP (Front Porch) Flats (Side patio) and OD (deck at various times.Did some yard work (another thing I really like to do).
So sad to find out that Glen Campbell had died. (See my RoadDog's RoadLog Blog from last week.)
Went to the Legion.
