  • The easiest Top 10 list ever?

     
    Faithful readers know that I'm meeting my daughter's plane when she returns from her trip to Uganda this Saturday. Unfortunately her plane lands at O'Hare. That would be in Chicago. I'm not happy about the fact that I have a......

  • The next road trip, part deux

     
    Over dinner (spareribs, baked apples, stewed tomatoes, creamed spinach, lima beans and cheese biscuits, none of it cooked from scratch by moi), I asked Gailor if she had made a reservation for the nicest restaurant in Evanston for next Friday......
