    My vacation started about two hours ago. Two minutes after I got into my vehicle the Cubs finished a win. Sunday morning it's off to Nashville for six days, five nights for whatever debauchery eight married couples in their late forties and fifties can get themselves into. And it's actually been cooler there, and the cold front predicted to pass through the Midwest this weekend is predicted to reach Tennessee as well.

    In any case, off till the 29th and I'm ready for it.

    Just got back from a working vacation to Lake county IL and Muncie Indiana.

    I'm happy to report I didn't buy a single penny of gas in Illinois. Take that Jelly Bean!

    I'm going to Wrigley in 2 weeks. 35th wedding anniversary 8-4-84. Cubs should've won the WS that year but crumbled like a cake my wife makes. How in the fuck did I last this long? She doesn't do cake anymore

    Padres had a better bullpen that year, especially in the middle, and a better manager. Dick Williams also had a lot of postseason experience and he managed rings around Jim Frey. First thing he did was take his lumps in game one without burning up his pen. When he needed seven plus innings out of them in game five they were up to the challenge.

    Sorry you have fallen for the blue lake myth. There is no such thing. Boji is a fine place..but a blue lake doesn't really exist. Here is the official DNR statement on your myth. https://www.iowadnr.gov/about-dnr/d...i-one-of-only-3-blue-water-lakes-in-the-world
