I recently returned from a short trip back home to Wisconsin -- too short it always seems. But, it was fun to see my niece, Leia (walking and talking since last I saw her), some family, a few of my best and oldest friends, and my grandfather who, like a trooper, is recovering well from many, many hours of open heart surgery - that's the Marquette spirit, Grandpa!
I do not particularly enjoy a few of the souvenirs I brought back, namely the many mosquito bites. But, I sure did eat well while I was home. Unfortunately, the trip was so short that I didn't make it down to Chicago - which I had hoped to. But, there's always next time!
See all you guys at Christmas!
