We like to travel. Going places, seeing and doing new things helps make life more interesting and as Mark twain is famous for saying, “Travel is fatal to Predjudice, Bigotry, and Narrow Mindedness.” This year we’ve been to Duluth a couple times, Long Prairie, and several places nearby. At Duluth we went to the Bayfront Blues festival, and we did some genealogy at Long Prairie. We frequent book stores, second hand and antique shops, and flea markets.
One big thing we have coming up is a trip to Texas. We’ve never spent a winter away from Minnesota but we’ve both come to see the advantages of not freezing to death. So the plan is to spend the coldest months of winter in Texas where the average winter temperature is 60 degrees F. This is new for us and we’ll be deciding if we want to continue the tradition. Meanwhile our home and garden will be well protected and safe while we’re gone.
We hope this works out well and we’ll continue to do it each year.
