61 and holding........
They say you have to start somewhere, so I begin my new blog with a report from a birthday party we attended last night (Saturday) for my favorite brother in law Lawrence. He and I travel alot of miles together during the car show and swap meet season throughout the year and always have fun. So a group of 11 of us got together from our small town of 400 friendly folks and drove 20 miles west and south to Lindsborg, KS (the Swedish capitol of the Mid West). Our destination was the Ol Stuga tavern where the atmosphere was festive and friendly. We found some table in the back and after ordering sandwiches (mine was german sausage with sauerkraut) and some pitchers of beer served in frosty mugs...it was time for shooting pool for the guys and playing Keno on the KS lottery tv screens for the gals. We must have stayed about 3 hours or so and it was just good clean, simple fun with family and friends. Happy 61st birthday Lawrence and let's do it again next year!
