You know how you sort of go into a time warp when you're on vacation. In the 13 Newsroom, I'm so used to getting a certain thing done every day at a certain time.. but when you're not watching the clock.. time goes faster or slower and then it's time to get back into the routine. I had a very interesting week off, and here's my recollection day by day to see if this will give you something to write me about in reaction!
MONDAY: Pretty exciting. (ha, ha just kidding) I took home one of the colonoscopy prep kits from my friendly doctor, then watched Jerry Lewis and Tony Curtis in an old movie called "Boeing, Boeing" which also happens to be playing on stage at one of the dinner theatres in Kansas City. Terribly dated now, but I like watching Jerry's movies since we've met several times, and I admire him very much.
TUESDAY: The big colonscopy. Did very well. Passed with flying colors. Glad I don't have to do it for five more years, though. Also watched the Holiday Bowl on TV, since our teenaged daughter's dance team performed at halftime! Of course, ESPN didn't show it. We didn't think they would
WEDNESDAY: Feeling just fine, I took on the task of going to the airport in Kansas City to pick up my teenaged daughter from her California New Year's trip. Her suitcase was left behind in Phoenix, so she was a little upset about that. The rest of the Hipp family started, and continued watching "Band of Brothers" about the 101st Airborne after D-Day. I had forgotten how good that miniseries was. Excellent.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY: Still watching "Band of Brothers." It's amazing how many of those fine men we lost in those war years.
SATURDAY: Beautiful sunny day for RaeChelle Davis' wedding not too far from Union Station in KC. She is a beautiful bride! The church still had the Christmas trees, poinsettias and greenery inside all lighted up. Think June weddings are gorgeous! Think about a holiday wedding, too! Boy, that was great. The reception was nice at an old downtown hotel. The highlight was walking over to the Sprint Center later on to see Celine Dion in concert! She is magnificent! The crowd loved her, and sometimes she'd walk up about 20 feet from us on her round stage to get right up to us! That was the highlight of my week off.. but it's always great being back with you.
