Getting out on a Saturday

This weekend, my wife took the kids down to my dad and stepmom's for the rest of the weekend and then took her mom with her to a riverboat casino as a birthday gift. I guess her mom hadn't "been to the boat" since her dad had the stroke in May 2005.

Earlier this week, I tried to schedule a massage, but the clinic I went to in November was booked for their morning and afternoon sessions, so I decided to get out and do something different.

A Google search turned up an independent coffee shop on the south side of town that I had never heard about. I checked out the place, and I couldn't believe that such a place existed on this part of town.

I wound up spending the better part of the afternoon and early evening here working and conversing with some of the regulars, and I stuck around to see a couple of acoustic singer/songwriter acts.

I'll be back here again soon. I felt like I was in my element.
