We will be staying in Minneapolis this winter. The 89-year-old matriarch of our little troupe has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and, although Virginia loves to travel, there’s no point in putting her through the rigors of the long road trip back to Texas. Plus, she adores the medical personnel working at her clinic up here.
Word is out that this will be my first real winter – ever. The lady who lives next door to us seemed to take too much delight in reading out loud from the Farmer’s Almanac. Bitter cold is forecast this winter in Minneapolis, she chuckled over the fence. Bitter, bitter, bitter. Has anybody seen my L. L. Bean catalog?
Now that my sister ratted me out, I’m nearly famous in Llano County, Texas. She was getting ready to fly up for a visit and offered airlift a sack full of pork chops from Cooper’s BBQ in Llano. Sis emailed wondering if she would have enough suitcase capacity to bring the goodies on-board. My advice: when faced with a decision involving clothes or BBQ, fly naked. There, that will make a nice plaque for the wall.
