Why Go Anywhere Else? --Part 2: Civil War, Two Decks and Two Performers
JULY 27, FRIDAY
Mostly worked in the yard. We did go to the Fox Lake American Legion on Nippersink Lake and met the Usual Suspects. We didn't win the 50-50.
JULY 28, SATURDAY
Went to Crystal Lake, Illinois, for the McHenry County Civil War Round Table discussion group meeting at Panera Bread. This month's topic was Civil War Industry.
When I returned, Liz and I went to Thirsty Turtle in Antioch on Channel Lake and sat out on the deck from 1 p.m. to 4 listening to Robert Boegart "Old Hippy Bob" as he played a lot of that old, great music and, in honor of what would have been Steve Goodman's 70th birthday, lots of his songs. Goodman wrote "City of New Orleans", "You Never Even Called Me By Your Name", "Go Cubs Go" the song Cubs fans sing after wins as they break out those "W" flags, and many others.
We then went over to the nearby Choppers and sat out on their deck by the channel and listened to Remedy Acoustic.
