Countin’ flowers on the wall
That don’t bother me at all
Playin’ solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ Captain Kangaroo
Now don’t tell me, I’ve nothing to do
Sometimes our minds play tricks on us. Like now, how I thought of this old song by the Statler Brothers and decided to post the chorus, which except for watching Captain Kangaroo, has nothing to do with me whatsoever. Hmmm.
Chicago was 80 degrees and sunny the entire time. Everybody had their outside seating in full swing, wanting to take advantage of the good weather Mother Nature has seen fit to bestow upon us. Our best meal (which is always saying something in Chicago) was at Shaw’s Crab House. What a cool beans place it is. We can’t believe we didn’t know about it until this visit! When in Chicago, you will know where to find us! We started in the bar and had reservations for dinner in the restaurant. Can’t say enough.
We also saw It was fantastic! Amazing talent performing skits that were oh so current in subject matter. Don’t miss it if you find yourself in Chicago my friends. We laughed non-stop.
Here’s a pic of us in New York, where the weather was still awesome for this time of year, but not in the 80’s. Every now and then we get one of us, but usually I am the one with the camera so you know how that goes. Besides, Michael always says he doesn’t show up on film.
Fun times, Margie
