PFD, I'm sorry about your baby girl.  Knowing it's the right thing doesn't make it an easy thing. ((hugs))


ETA:  I was going to do a separate post with some photos but am having the same problem that they won't upload.  I'm leaving for Milwaukee tomorrow so will try again either before I go or on Sunday.

Oh, Averia, I didn't realize you were in that area.  Flooding is so devastating even if your house is fine.  I can never get over the overwhelming-ness of it all.

Congrats to Mr. Alexampersandra!  What area of medicine/doctoring will he be entering?

My apologies for the lack of posting.  We have been doing things, but I always think to post when I am away then forget when I get home.  Here's a quick catch up:  we went to see Labyrinth on the big screen.  Unfortunately only front row was left by the time we got there, but it was still fun.


I like to check out audio books for my travels, so I took Rey to the library.


We tied some quilts for charity with other members of the guild.


Most of the hotels we stay in for business travel are low key affairs, so I was surprised to see a Tesla charging station at our Chicago-area place.


Rey has been making friends with many of the dancers.  Here he tries on my friend Stephanie's head piece.

I hope Poppy is feeling better soon!  Giving meds to cats is not much fun.   Shocked

That quirky arm thing is right up my alley, and the chimneys are beautiful!

As I'm looking over pics of the last two weeks it would appear there are a lot of food-centered things.  Roll Eyes
We have a local roast beef chain named Lion's Choice.  They have good sandwiches, but I love the mini dip cones.  It's the perfect little dessert.


A couple of days later we stopped by Gus' pretzels for a bratwurst baked in a pretzel.  No pics of that since from the outside it just looks like a pretzel, but here's Rey on their pretzel fence.


We went to the St. Louis Art Museum for the Sunken Treasures exhibit.  It features things found off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt.  This is one of the colossi in the main hall.


Spring blooms finally made it here.  I'm not sure what the tree is (maybe some kind of cherry?), but it and the tulips are planted in the front of the museum.



After the museum we headed to The Hill for lunch.  This area was settled by Italian immigrants and still has a lot of Italian families and restaurants.  We settled on a new-to-us place called Guido's.


My mosaic group meets once a month at a public art studio.  This place is so full of color and inspiration.


I get King Ranch Chicken every fall when I'm in Texas, but I decided I didn't need to wait until then and made my own.


And, finally, we took Rey to our favorite Mexican restaurant.  All of the booths and chairs are carved with different scenes.  I don't know if you can see it or not, but Homer Simpson makes an appearance on a bar stool to the far right.

We had a lot of excitement over the weekend. Sunday a tornado came through. We're fine, but there was a lot of damage in the area.

Scary times, glad you had no problems!

DH and I did some running around last week.  He was wanting to try Black Rifle Coffee, so we stopped in a local tactical store.


St. Charles served as the capitol of Missouri while they were still doing construction in Jefferson City.  Here's the first capitol building.


The Bradford Pear trees seemed to bloom overnight.  These are along the Missouri River in Frontier Park.

The weekend before last I worked in Madison, WI.  I knew I was truly in Wisconsin when I saw the Green Bay house.  (Rey is positioned oddly to block the sun.)


This past weekend I was in Tulsa, so I took Rey to see the Golden Driller.


While there I stopped for lunch at Whataburger.  We don't have these in St. Louis, so I hit one up whenever I can.
