Where’s Mellencamp When You Need Him?

What I’ve done on summer vacation the past couple of days:

  • got sunburned at Six Flags
  • drove to the farm in Illinois
  • finished the final draft of my magazine article
  • finished The Chosen by Chaim Potok
  • helped my sister move into her new classroom at the elementary school
  • watched Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  • visited with my high school friend, Lori, who runs an assisted living center/tanning salon (all in the same building)
  • listened to the Cardinals lose two out of three to the Cubs
  • got more sunburned swimming with my girls
  • ate a picnic dinner at the park in Griggsville
  • had lunch with my 87-year-old grandmother (above) in Quincy
  • sat outside on the patio and listened to the corn grow
  • enjoyed the rural life

We’re off to Harrisburg, MO, this afternoon to stay the weekend with a college buddy and his family, and will be back in St. Louis Sunday afternoon. Next week is our week in the big city of Chicago (details to come), so we’re taking in all the country we can get between now and then.

It’s good to be in the Midwest. Where’s John Mellencamp when you need him?
