Dinner with Jeremy

My brother-in-law, Jeremy, spent the night in Denver with me. As always, it was a pleasure to spend time with him and bull shit about my family. There were stories that I didn't know about and I enjoy seeing him. His dogs are crazy, still, and right away, Murphy, let us know that he was the master of my house. He christened it twice, and then strutted around like the alpha male.
We trapped them in the kitchen and headed off to the Bull with Jimmy. A few beers later, yes, I drank beer, and we had dinner at 2nd Home in Cherry Creek. The food is upscale comfort, but the service lacks. I don't know if I can go there anymore. I have yet to be impressed by the bartenders. Although, the lady was pleasant last night, her partner is a moron and has no awareness of his surroundings. We finished the night off at Kona and then back to my house to get a good night's rest.
Jeremy is hoping to make it to Boise tonight. That is a long stretch considering, he is pulling a trailer and with his dogs. They go buck wild every time he stops.
August is the month of visitors. I began with Jeremy and I will conclude with Cedric from Las Vegas. We are going to the Rockies game on Friday and then hopefully, I will be able to entertain him though Sunday morning.
We will see. Let me know, if you are coming my way.

I'm back home and it was nice to catch up on your life. Tom and I had a great time in Canada. The weather was great and we caught fish. No walleye but we had great bass.
We took little detours. We stopped at 2 wineries in 2 days. Each had wine tastings and we are starting to learn a bit. I am secretly preparing for a trip to wine county. I have envisioned the movie "Sideways". I have to get through school first. I haven't even started and I am a little upset with the schedule. It's only 9 months....I can do this.

I can't believe you have a bump back. What the hell bite you! Keep us informed. Have a great time in Chicago. I think it will be much warmer this time.

Love, Shari

I was wondering how you were doing. I am glad that you enjoyed Canada.
Wine country is amazing. We could do Washington or Oregon and make our way down to California.
Chicago should be interesting. I am hoping to go to dinner at Tru and Fronterra Grill. Of course, I will stop into the Map Room and see my friends that work there. Call me when you have a chance--I miss you!
