Southwest to Midwest

Yesterday we drove from monsoon rain in Flagstaff to 108 degrees in Phoenix. We spent the night near the airport before getting on the plane early in the morning to fly to Minneapolis. We had dinner last night at a college neighborhood sushi place happy hour. We had Stella and sushi and listened to loud music like the Clash and Led Zeppelin. It was fun and sooo cheap!
Tonight we are in 76 degree weather, flat, green, watery and leafy Minnesota. We had dinner in a small town diner - no music, no lighting, no college students. It seems that everyone here has worked hard for about 65 - 75 years. The waitress was a high school girl running around doing everything and smiling the whole time. Everything was heavy and greasy and yummy. I would not want to eat like that more than once a year.
Tomorrow morning we drive 45 minutes to pick up our 2 daughters who have been away at camp for 2 weeks. We have had a nice break. It was a good experience for all of us, and I am really looking forward to seeing them and hearing all about it!
