Shake it Off

Happy 2008, friends. The first week of the new year was a bit of a rough one, not only with getting back into a groove after being off for a week but also with problems with employees, equipment failures & customer complaints. The week ended on a high note, however with a phone call from Brother Dan from Baghdad. He's safe & happy to be coming home early February.

He told me he was able to score us two tickets to the sold out opening night of Wilco playing at the Riviera in Chicago on February 15. Not only will it be great to see my ol' chum in Chicago with Jill & Christie, I've always wanted to see Wilco in concert. This will be the perfect time for it. Christie & I have been talking about visiting Chicago for a while, she's probably starting to wonder why the only times we ever visit another city it's always for a concert.

The day ended well after work, with a nice dinner at the DEE-Lite in downtown Grand Haven with Mike & Christie. The DEE-Lite is great for their vegetarian sandwiches, there are three options, which is about all you can expect from a restaurant.

My kind of town, Chicago is.
Getting back to it, that's what I do tomorrow. It was a great break.
