Man, that cheese burger ate good and the onion rings were pretty doggone good as well. I’d eat more often like that if it wouldn’t kill me. I used to eat like that but then again I was a lot younger too. Ahhhh, the sins of my youth. Too bad some have come back to haunt me.
I called retreat early today in lieu of 5:00 PM. It’s getting darker sooner and the air gets much cooler as the sun fades in the west. The geese are still around but they have no reason to leave right now. The lakes and ponds are still open, there’s no snow on the ground and there’s plenty of grain that they can feed on in the fields that have been harvested.
I’m tempted to go build a fire and watch the stars come out in the night sky. I am tempted to sit there in the warmth of the fire and watch the planes fly overhead as they head into MSP. I think it would be a great way to put this week behind me.
