Much, Much Better . . .

First off, I want to thank everyone who commented or emailed me while I was under the weather last week. A few of you even hoped I’d get well soon.
Angry smile (Sorry about that)

I’m pretty much back to normal, or at least as normal as I get.

A little after 1 pm we all headed over to Mishawaka for some shopping. On the way we took a detour through the construction mess in downtown Elkhart to drop off some mail at the Post Office. They’ve got most of Main St. torn up and it seemed like every street we tried to turn down was closed.

Our first stop in Mishawaka was at Sam’s Club. Jan and I needed to pick up our monthly prescriptions and we all did some shopping while we were there.

Our next stop was up the road at University Park Mall. While Nick and I hung out at Barnes & Noble, Jan and Terry headed out through the mall to the Bath & Body Works store to pick up some soaps.

Getting back home about 4:30 I did some client internet stuff and then around 5 Nick and Terry, and Jan and I drove over to North China Buffet, to meet Al Hesselbart, Dennis and Carol Hill, and Larry & Marilyn Forbes. Dennis and Carol and Larry & Marilyn recently returned from an Alaska RV caravan trip and it was interesting to compare notes from our trip in 2008. As usual we spent a lot of time talking and didn’t get home until almost 8pm.

On the weather front, winter is coming in with a rush. By Thursday night we’re supposed to have temps in the 30’s. Nice.

Thought for the Day:

In the Spring of 1863, General Robert E. Lee was conducting a military review of his Army of Northern Virginia for the benefit of an English military observer, Col Arthur Fremantle.

When members of Hood’s Texas Brigade “marched” past the reviewing stand, Fremantle, who knew of the unit’s amazing effectiveness as shock troops, was puzzled by what he saw and exclaimed: “Why General Lee, these men hardly have shirts on their backs.”

To which Lee replied: “That’s okay, Colonel. The enemy never sees the backs of my Texans.”
