After a very small continental breakfast this morning we called and got in touch with Jim (blenderboy), who said he would come by and lead us back to his place in just a few minutes. So we checked out and took our luggage down to our car in the rear parking lot. We only had to wait about two minutes for him to arrive. He led us back into downtown Milwaukee and to his wonderful home. We went in and met his wife Joy and sat and talked for at least an hour before they took us out for a tour of their city. Our tour took us through many of the great things in the city. I got a few pictures although I must admit that talking with Joy and Jim kept me from getting several more. We really enjoyed our drive.
Then they took us to one of their favorite dives, a Mexican Restaurant named Conejitos.
After lunch we made it back to their place where we said our goodbyes and thanks and headed west a short distance to visit with two of Judy's neices. We spent the afternoon chatting and catching up. It had been several years since we had seen them. One of the neices was working and didn't get off work until about 8:30 in the evening, so the rest of us went out to dinner in nearby Johnson Creek, and a place named Hi-Way Harry's.
We had a hard time finding a hotel for the night but finally found the JC Plaza Hotel. It was quite late and we checked in.
