5/24/13 Friday at Elwood, IL (Cathy and Win’s Farm)
Spent most of the morning working on the blog. When we finally got to Pilcher Nature Center, I got an image of their totem pole, perused the educational items inside, then we started our walk on their trail. Right off the bat, Marianne called. She was ready for us to come for lunch. The guys (John and Gary) had gone golfing and were on their way to Gary’s.
Lunch was great fun and best of all the conversation later. It’s amazing what you can learn from people with 25 plus years of experience as a Paramedic (John), Lawyer then Judge (Cathy), Corrections Law Librarian (Gary), Music teacher (Marianne) and Bankruptcy Court Deputy Clerk (myself). Suddenly, Cathy realized it was 4 pm and we still needed to get our grocery shopping done and get ourselves to the Fish Fry before the Memorial Day hordes descend. So she and I left for that while John (in his separate car) stayed a while visiting, then stopped by Best Buy before driving home.
We were all together by 6 pm and dashed to the Fish Fry. John and Cathy are not big fish lovers, yet John had cod pieces with fries and Cathy had shrimp with roasted potatoes. I was melting in delight with my Lake Victoria Perch, grilled. Heavenly. Everyone was quite full when we made our way home. This time we settled down to playing on computers a bit as we watched TV.
