Zero Miles

It is so great to have a houseful this morning.  We all gather in the Master Suite for coffee and conversation (the best part of the day).

Dad makes a fantastic French Toast with his home made brioche for breakfast in the formal dining room.

Today is a golf day for Jack, Rich and me.  Dad sends us to Fendrich golf course in Evansvillle.  Both Rich and I have played here before, but it has been a while.

It is an absolutely beautiful day and we have a great time together.  Rich has a fantastic front and an ok back.  Jack and I just limp along (I did have one birdie…).  The wind picks up and we can tell the weather is beginning to change.  Fall is coming to Evansville!

The tradition for us after golf in Evansville is to go to our favorite watering hole – The Gerst Haus.  We pick up Alan and make our way to Franklin Street where the preparations for the WestSide Nut Club Fall Festival are in full swing.  (The Fall Festival is a HUGE event for the Westside of Evansville and I am sorry that we are going to miss it.  It starts officially on Monday).

We enjoyed our frosty ones and I am sure we solved some of the world’s problems while sitting at the Gerst Haus bar.  When we bot back home Mom and Dad were relaxing on the patio.

The weather is definitely changing to Autumn here.  It is getting windy and looks like it might rain. The temps are dropping and it is supposed to be a low of 40 tonight!  This will be a nice interlude before we head back to Arizona.

Another awesome vegetarian dinner is presented tonight.  I think everyone might just get used to this.

Pan-seared Cracker Coated Eggplant, Fresh Tomatoes with Garden Basil and Dario Olive Oil, Macaroni and Cheese and home made bread

Generally, Rich does not really care for eggplant (I love it), but even he went in for seconds tonight.  It was delicious and everyone enjoyed the entire meal.

We took three of our usual “group pictures.” They are supposed to be “normal faces,” Surprise Faces,” and “Soul Faces.”  Can you spot the differences?

Normal Faces (haha)

“Soul Faces” (what in the heck is Rich doing?) Linda and Jack have it correct.

This was another great day on the Love Boat.  Jack will leave in the morning if he can make it to the airport to rent his car.  It turns out the the President will be arriving at the Evansville airport tomorrow and traffic will be stopped.  I hope he gets through.
