Vacation 2021

Something for the weekend:  Holiday Road.  I am on vacation with my family until August 8. My internet connection in the coming week will range from intermittent to non-existent. That is now by choice.  In the past it was not, but now with ubiquitous wi-fi, portable ipads and kindles, that is no longer the case, and, truth to tell, it hasn’t been for the last several years.  I will have posts for each day I am away on the blog, but if something momentous occurs, for example:  Elvis is discovered working at a Big Boy’s in Tulsa, the Pope issues a Bull against blogging as a complete waste of time, or Biden is taken out of the White House in a straight jacket, I trust that this post will explain why I am not discussing it.

 

First, up to Kenosha, Wisconsin with a visit to my bride’s mother.  We have been doing this since the birth of the twins and it has always been a fun family gathering.  I heartily recommend both the Kenosha Civil War Museum and the Milwaukee Zoo  Then it is back home next Monday for an overnight pit stop and to board our dog Cali until next Saturday.  I will interrupt my vacation with a brief court hearing on Tuesday.  The vacations of a week in duration that I have without being interrupted by some court hearingare becoming rare as the years pass.

Gen Con this year has been rescheduled to September and masks are required.  As this is the case my family is passing on it.

My bride and I have only been attending since 1986, my bride missing 1991 when she was heavily pregnant with our twins.  (I made a 300 mile one day dash to the Convention that year through continual thunder storms by myself, one of the more foolish actions of my life.)  Sad to miss it this year, but a masked convention would not be enjoyable for us.

We are still going to Indianapolis to do some sight seeing however.  We have grown fond of the town since Gen Con moved here in 2003 and we are taking advantage of the hiatus to see some of the sights.  Hopefully next year Gen Con will resume normally, although 2020 and 2021 has taught all of us to take absolutely nothing for granted.

A good week albeit somewhat tiring, but I can rest in the law mines after I get back!  See you all on August 8.
