As we were talking, I told her I took a picture of the Iowa mountains (LOL), here they are. She had a quite quizzical response :o)
Yesterday was a fairly productive day at the Project Management Meeting. After the meeting ended, I got in a quick workout, and then we headed out to downtown Cedar Rapids for a very nice dinner, and then a group of us went across the street to a piano bar. Both businesses only reopened in the last two weeks as a result of the Cedar River flooding after the June 2008 Midwest flooding.
At dinner, I sat next to an older black gentleman from Chicago. We discussed the recent election results, had a great discussion about wine selection and storage (he was a bit of a novice, but was extremely interested in learning more), and Ball State. He was very excited about the football team still being undefeated at 9-0, and the potential for a BCS bowl bid :o) He played right offensive tackle there as an undergraduate.
At the piano bar, it was interesting how the pianist, who was very entertaining, did not take a break for the whole three hours that we were there. He played up a storm, and made a boat-load of money by taking requests, and by stopping playing certain requests (like country music, just does not get the piano bar crowd going LOL). It was a fun evening, but I was in no shape to do any Blogging or such when I got back to the hotel.
After my two presentations this morning, it was off to the airport for the journey home. No bad travel events to report. I got home shortly after 7:00 P.M., and watched a pitiful Notre Dame game at Boston College, they got shutout. Nothing more worth being said.
Beth and Sheeba were very happy to see me when I got home. A busy few days, and it is nice to be home-sweet-home. Hope your weekend is going well :o)
