Yesterday, fittingly, was rainy and cool, perfect for having a recuperation day from my brother's brief but potent visit as he was heading to North Carolina. We took a walk in the morning so I could show him the lake and a bit of the neighborhood.
These photos are a bit out of order, but since it takes almost 20 or 100 minutes to load them up, you'll just have to sort it out yourselves, with a few hints.
While he was - somehow - driving for 9 hours, I was pretty much doing nothing. I don't know what Francie was doing as I didn't see her again until this morning. But today is a new day, the sun is trying to shine and

Knowing my brother wouldn't arrive until dinner-ish time, we decided to check out of of the local eateries that had been mentioned as a good spot, Catfish Johnny's. In business over 20 years we figured it had to have something going for it, and since we all like catfish, it was worth a try. Unfortunately, Jonny got stuck in city rain Friday afternoon traffic. Ah well, we'd just go anyway and get him a to-go dinner. That worked.

Hopefully, I'll have some turkey to take to the next stop on the road. Stay tuned.
Have a spectacularly scrumptious Sunday Funday! Do something silly.
