Marion's visit was a highlight, of course. And we always love our ROAD TRIPS.
On this day, we were hanging in my hood....
|Can you guess where we are?|
|Here's a clue -- brass fixtures in the Ladies Room!!|
|Stained Glass in the lobby?|
|Magnificent fresh floral arrangements?|
Marion is a sports fan -- so we sat in the bar so she could see a little Wimbledon. See the guy sitting at the end of the bar? The two of them started talking about tennis...and I noticed his shirt had a CBS logo....
Turns out -- he is one of 80 CBS people staying in the hotel to cover the PGA tournament that weekend. The John Deere Classic was happening in Milan, Illinois. We had a little conversation with him. It was interesting to hear his take on the Fox Sports coverage of the US Open -- in Tacoma -- which, I'm afraid, fell flat on many levels (sorry, Tacoma).
|We only wanted a light lunch that day...because we were saving our appetites for...the evening meal.|
|John took us out to TC's in DeWitt, Iowa. BEST PRIME RIB EVER..Honestly, I just don't know how they could do a better job..|
|okay...now that I'm looking at the pictures, maybe they could buy some new steak plates...|
