A Trip to Chicago
I went to Chicago today. My main mission was to meet Franklin for a little stealth project. My secondary goal was to meet Marcy, aka mittenfarce. Here they are together at Arcadia Knitting. It was a perfect day. Even the time I spent crawling in construction-related traffic was perfect. Maybe you need to be a parent to understand that part. When I get to take a long drive alone and listen uninterrupted to whatever I like on the radio, it's a good day. And meeting and hanging out with delightful knitters just tops it off. On the way down, I was reflecting on how wonderful Mr SABLE is. His wife announces one day that she's going to drive to Chicago to meet a man from the internet and take pictures of him! And he says, "OK." On the way home, I stopped at a Krispy Kreme on the interstate and bought a dozen donuts to reward my guys for being such great sports.
And now, I'm off to stare at a Sudoku puzzle for a few minutes before I fall asleep.
