My wife, I tell ya...

All those posts from yesterday were done from my phone. Here's the scoop typed on a keyboard that's a bit easier to use. So, one of my good friends comes to town for a visit. I knew about this for a while. I'd been making plans to do a little of this and a little of that...heck, we were even having a meeting of our whiskey club Friday night. All is good, he arrives on time Thursday night. Just after I get done dropping the kids off at grandma's so we can have Friday to just enjoy.


Supposedly, my wife needed to work yesterday. She got up, showered, got dressed in her work cloths...the whole enchilada. She even left...

My friend was downstairs, awake and fiddling with his GPS. I went outside to take the garbage and recycling to the street and while I was out there, he'd come out too. He asks me to come over a look at his GPS to see if it looked right to me. It said "STL"...destination, St. Louis.

We had talked much earlier in the year about getting to some Minnesota Twins away games. The St. Louis on seemed to have the most promise, but as far as I had know, it just wasn't gonna work out.

"Um, are we going to the game?" I asked.

"Yep"

ROAD TRIP!

This is a surprise birthday present from my wife...that crafty vixen!

The picture at the top was taked from our seats during the first game. You see, when you drive 8 hours to go watch your team play, you catch as many as you can. There's a noon game today and we have tickets to "The Legends Club".

Other plans include possibly playing some cards at a local casino, visiting the brewery, toursty stuff and wandering aimlessly like tourists.

What a great time we are having so far. I'm sure I'll be posting more later as long as the battery in my phone holds up...
