My Old Town!

Good morning from the Airport Hilton in St. Louis!

It's just a quick (and spontaneous) overnight getaway to the Gateway City. Last night we walked downtown and got a bite to eat at an outdoor cafe. It was a beautiful mid-February evening. Chris wore jeans and a light jacket. I had shorts and a long sleeve shirt.

Today looks like another gorgeous day and we are headed to the St. Louis Ikea store. It's been a pretty lazy start to the day and I don't expect that we'll do much more than wander through Ikea and maybe make a small purchase or two. We'll be back home sometime this evening and up for church at Hopedale tomorrow.

I really like the City of St. Louis. It has been a couple of decades since we've lived and worked in the area and much has changed. St. Louis is a little bit like an overgrown town. It is a relatively small city that offers city living with country charm. Maybe we'll find ourselves back this way in a few years. It would be nice to live in an area where there is more to do in the way of entertainment and cultural events. It is also a city with a couple of professional sports teams and host to several sporting events. I'm still waiting for St. Louis to host a UFC Fight Night!

It's also nice to be close to an airport with better connections to the world of international travel!

It is time to set aside my Chromebook and get this Saturday started.

Have a grand weekend.
Do something nice for somebody.

You couldn't ask for two nicer days to wander around St. Louis in February.

St. Louis sounds nice. Do you catch the Cardinals sometime? Have a nice visit and trip home, John!

Looking forward to going to several Cardinals games this summer, Angel!
