Winter Wonder(why we are here) Land

We spent the other day driving north to the kids house in SE Michigan and we've already seen enough snow to last the rest of the year, I tried to talk Cathy into making some snow angels so I could get a few pictures but she's not having any of it.

We normally leave the rig in Chattanooga when we drive up but this year we decided to try a park near Knoxville, this knoxs (get it Knoxs) about two hours off our drive time and we can miss the rush hour traffic in Knoxville. Can't say that it got any colder as we made our way north since it was about 29 degrees when we left predawn and it was 33 degrees when we got there in the afternoon.

The Dad's Club at the kids school, St William, does a fish fry every Friday during Lent, and Don is one of the cooks, so that's where we head for dinner Fridays. Their fish dinner can rival any that we have had around the country, last night they served over 900 meals, all the kids from the school work as the servers and it normally turns into a giant neighborhood get together, plus it makes a lot of money for the Dad's Club which sponsors all the sporting events and school teams.

Big birthday party this Sunday for our grand daughter, a week of goofing around with the kids, hopefully not it the snow then it's back south where we hope it might actually get warmer as we go.

If your in the area again, give me a shout and we can meet up.

Hey, quick, head south. It's going be in the 70's this week here in Central Florida. Yesterday was terrific.
