After we spent a some hours with mom, and helped her out with lunch, we went with the guys to Garfield, to the Fire Station Bar and Grill. It's right by the Central Lakes Trail. http://www.centrallakestrail.com/
We were just about the only people in the Firehouse that hadn't come by snowmobile. The fries were great. Here is a sweatshirt on sale there. Maybe for my next birthday. http://www.firestationbar.com/Or not.
Another customer arriving.

Chuck and I went into Alex this morning. I'd promised mom I would be there before lunch to visit her at Knute. We had a nice visit, and lunch together. Then she was happy for an afternoon nap. Me too. By the time we headed home, it had been snowing quite hard, so the highway was just two slushy ruts down the middle. With a glaze of ice underneath. Yuck.
So until he has to go out to blow snow and shovel, Chuck enjoys being snowed in. He has beer in the fridge.

This blog is basically someone who photographs people on bicycles in Copenhagen. Having been to Copenhagen twice, that is where I first learned that in Europe there are definite bike lanes, and STAY THE HECK OFF OF THEM if you are a wandering, clueless tourist.
There are lots of images, so it takes a while to load.

She has a nice room with afternoon sun, and we worked a little on making it feel more homey for her.
Papa Murphy's take and bake pizza at Mike's ended the day. We had a good laugh at their cat Dave, who comes running when he knows there will be a ride on the walker. He just loves it. Mike likes to hot rod with any vehicle, ever since his tricycle I'm sure, and Dave goes along for the ride.

When I look at this photo I scare myself. Can I retire yet? Seriously, it must be my 73rd field trip. 25 years of teaching, about 3 a year . . .
This photo will not make it into the yearbook.
