me: This neighborhood is getting so... strange. There's a comic book shop opening two doors down from an archery.
Jessi: Are you kidding? It's awesome! First you can read about Hawkeye, then you can learn how to BE Hawkeye.
Jessi and I are taking a Train Writing Trip this weekend. We caught an Amtrak this morning to travel for a few hours, read, write, and enjoy the scenery and train-ness of it all.
I picked a pretty little town to stay in for the night that we’ve never visited. She doesn’t know where yet. It’s along the Katy Trail, a 220+ mile long biking, hiking, and winery trail that runs through Missouri (apparently it’s the US’s longest rails-to-trails, uh, trail). We want to actually bike and do the winery thing along it soon, maybe in the fall.
Sunday morning we’ll hop back on the train, head home, and do it all over again.
I didn’t realize this would be Jessi’s first time in Chicago’s Union Station. This place inspires me every time.
me: You know, if you like IKEA so much why don't you marry it
Jessi: Dave, you know that's illegal
Jessi: I kinda hope the power goes out.
Oscar (older dog): WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE EVERYONE GET TO THE PANIC TUB NAO!!!
