I am off to bring my daughter to "Camp Grandma" this weekend. She will spend three weeks with my mother, and I need to take advantage of that free time. That's the official kickoff to our summer tour. Kim will be reviewing a tavern in Northville, our southernmost venue. Her husband was most gracious in offering to come along in my absense.
I will be back mid-week only to repack and head up to Lake Placid with Kim and our husbands for a couple of days. Hope to get my first 2011 golf opportunity in the morning, maybe lunch and then start "work". Already told the boss that he can call me if he needs anything, but not during "Happy Hour" on Wed. and Thurs. Got to remember not to answer the phone while I'm "Peaking". So far, that has been easy, because most of the areas we visit don't have any cell phone reception, but Lake Placid should be different.
Looking forward to the Happy Hour in the High Peaks challenge of eight bars in two days! At least we won't have drive. I wonder if the Crowne Plaza has a shuttle we can catch? If anyone has any suggested sites, always glad to hear them.
Totally missed the boat on the Rhubarb Festival in Warrensburg today. Imagine if we showed up with our rhubarb margaritas. No one would have noticed the rain, while sipping our margaritas!
