Another day in the mid-90s in Denver, its supposed to cool off a little after today so that's something to look forward to.
My daughter and her husband took me out to a restaurant for breakfast this morning as kind of an early Father's Day present, since they're not gonna be here for Father's Day. We went to a restaurant called Lucille's which is a Cajun or Creole restaurant. There all located here in Colorado and I think there's about four of them scattered around.
Everything was really good and I had the best biscuits and gravy I think I've ever had. They even had real grits, real grits are kind of hard to find in Colorado. And they were salted correctly which is getting hard to find anywhere.
I exchanged a few emails with Barney the Old Fat Man this morning, and the discussion centered around where we each had planned to go this coming winter, and the consensus was neither one of us knew.
Now I have perfectly rational reasons for not knowing where I'm going next winter. "A" I'm too lazy to make plans. "B" I have a lack of ambition to make a plan. And "3" if I made a plan I would probably forget what it was.
I find that the beauty of not making a plan is, you don't know where you going to go. So when you get there it's a complete surprise, and who doesn't like a surprise. Also if you don't know where you're going it's pretty much impossible to get lost, which is why I've never been lost. I've also found that if you don't know where you're going you can change your mind as much as you want without ever ending up someplace you didn't mean to be.
But I have given some thought as to where to go this winter but its hard to concentrate on winter plans when it's 95° outside. The problem is there are so few places in the country where it's fairly warm and comfortable in the winter. And if you take away the places where I wouldn't go if you paid me, that would be Southern California, then options are fairly limited.
And then if you throw in me not wanting to go to the same places I was at last year, that kind of narrows it down to southern Texas, southern Florida, and a few other areas in the South which will get a little cold but generally not stay that way for very long.
Even though I've lived in the South, a looong time ago, I haven't spent much time living there like a gypsy. so if I did go to the South for a month or two the whole trip would be a learning experience which is maybe something I need.
