I'm afraid that I'm not going to be able to make it on the 12th after all. I just found out that my family's Christmas gathering is going to be on that day, and family always comes first. Hopefully, Jim and Bobbi, I'll get another chance to see you before you head for Arizona. Have a good time, all.

      With this bunch it's more like "Feastivus for the least of us!"

          Yep, Buddy, it's me. Sorry that I can't join y'all on the 12th, but this other event is pretty important; it may be the only chance that I'll get to see my brother and his family this year.

            Well, have fun with your family; we'll miss you.
             
            Jim and Bobbi are not permanently heading west until at least February of next year, or later.  I know we'll have other opportunities to get together before they start rooting for the Arizona Cardinals.

                  MFL - We are only at about 2/3's of Ilija's limit.
                  Congratulations Ann.  I hope you can make it, but understand that starting a new job is important.

                            Dancing?  Does that mean you found the bear costume?

                                      Tonight into tomorrow. Hopefully it'll be done by 5. 
                                      I'm not trying to scare anyone.

                                            X1 - We just got back from Chicago.  The last five miles were treacherous. 
                                             
                                            Which brings us to our strange Roadfood coincidence of the day.  We met a friend of Bobbi's for the friend's 50th birthday at the Fireplace Inn on Wells Street in Chicago.  After dinner we decided it would be fun to drop by Burt's Place to give BuddyRoadhouse some trouble.  Problem was, Burt's would not show up on our GPS.
                                             
                                            No problem, I'll call one of my Roadfood pals and get the address (thanks Beth, Mike, & Greg!).  So I'm on my cellphone making the call in front of the restaurant when one of the smokers on the sidewalk tells me "Burton Place is right there," as he pointed across Wells Street.  As Alanis would say, isn't it ironic?

                                            We did get to Burt's and completely surprised Jeff.  That pizza smelled so good, it was a real shame that the oven was shut off.

                                              We had originally planned to visit family in the Chicago area during the day tomorrow (which is now today) and then finish in Milwaukee, but not now.  The roads were bad at 9pm and when the temperature drops and the wind picks up they aren't going to be any better, so we've cancelled everything.

                                                  Frank's feeling like the weather is not as inviting as the Bear's game....
                                                  is there anyone who might swing by Deerfield to pick up another passenger?
                                                  I'd rather not drive up alone...

                                                    The Roadhouses might be able to accommodate you.  We need to determine if we'll have room in the car for an extra person.  We'd be leaving around 2:30-3:00pm to account for the weather.  If you've got my number, call me.  If not, PM me with your number and I'll call you.

                                                      They keep breaking into my ice skating to tell about the weather.
                                                       
                                                      They're saying the thing is not the snow so much as the blowing/drifting. I think as long as everyone gives themselves p l e n t y of time we should be ok.
                                                       
                                                      Normally I would beg off as I hate driving in crappy weather, but I'm looking forward to tonight.

                                                        Windy as all get out but if Milwaukee has even an inch of snow I'd be shocked. Now north and west of here is another matter.

                                                          The constant sound of the wind is slowly driving me crazy.
