Closing Out July-- Part 3: The Civil War, No Cassette Tapes, Da Blues and Baseball
SATURDAY, JULY 29
Enjoyed listening to Saturday Morning Flashback to 1971, a good college year for me.
I drove to Crystal lake where the McHenry County Civil War Round Table discussion group 's topic was 20 significant points of the Civil War. I then went to Target and Barnes & Noble, two stores which are not close to us in Spring Grove. Also checked out the garden nurseries at Meijer, Home Depot and Wal-Mart, but didn't buy anything.
I'd say the end of an era has taken place as Meijer did not have the 5-pack bricks of Maxell cassette tapes that I have been buying all these many years. This is the last place I know of that sold cassette tapes. Oh Well.
We went to The grove in Spring Grove and watched the blues band in the biergarten for awhile and then went to Sunnyside in Johnsburg and watched the movie "Major League" The Cubs won and Sox Lost.
