In mid April we spent 8 nights in Minnesota. We returned mainly to see Bob’s 93 year old mom and also get caught up with family and friends. We visited with Helen over 5 days. She had her “to do” list for Bob to take care of. Pretty cute. We stayed two nights right in the guest room that Walker Methodist has so very convenient We slept in 5 different beds, visited with 28 family and friends, including a nice long lunch gathering with my Randen cousins and some of their spouses, and got introduced to our friends 9 dogs! I definitely got my four legged furry friend fix!
When we got there no leaves on the trees and the first day was cold but then it warmed up and by the time we left you could definitely see spring was sprung! A good trip but tiring.
One thing of note was the price of cigarettes. $8 a pack! Glad we don’t smoke. Minnesota has a tax of $3 a pack and South Carolina tax of $ .57.
Bob was thrilled to go have his White Castle burger with his mom and we both enjoyed lunch at Culvers. We do have a Culvers coming near us soon so looking forward to that.
One last thing, we took our first Uber ride from the off site (not at the airport) car rental place to the airport. Flawless experience.
We felt like we really had quality time with everyone.
