Being an account of some things I'm interested in, what I'm doing, and reflections on my past, especially music.

Guns, Oldies and DaBears Weekend-- Part 2
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
Went to McDonald's for their 2 for $4 bacon, egg and cheese biscuits. We like those a lot. A perfect day weatherwise, even as the Chain was closing down because of the flooding. Sure glad we got out of boating earlier this summer as the Chain has been closed or no wake for almost half the time this year.
Enjoyed WXRT's Saturday Morning Flashback to 1982 and did some yard work.
We went to the SAL gun raffle at the Fox Lake American Legion and met Glenn and Barb and enjoyed Mitch Edwards until 6 and then the oldies band Looney Train. Went over to Stucky's in Johnsburg where Uncle Will and the Wayback Machine were playing oldies.
Liz and I definitely love our oldies music. Perhaps because we are OLD!!
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15
Well, we had rain all night. Just what we needed with all the flooding. Listened to Bob Stroud's Rock and Roll Roots show on the Drive from 7 to 10 a.m.and recorded Terri Hemmert's Breakfast With the Beatles on WXRT. I do this most Sunday mornings. Sat out in the gazebo and read the Chicago Tribune.
The Bears played at 3:30 p.m. and we drove over to the Squaw Bar in Ingleside on Squaw Creek only to find the whole rear of the place flooded and the front parking lot full, so didn't go in. Went to the Fox Lake American Legion on Nippersink Lake and all its piers were under water, but a dry parking lot so watched the first quarter of the Bears game.
Then went to Sunnyside Tavern in Johnsburg and found seats at the bar and watched the rest of the Bears-Denver Broncos game. That last 31 seconds was something else and the Bears kicked a field goal to win 16-14 as time expired.
