We made our way back home today after 5 lovely days at Leech Lake. Yesterday, we spent the day again doing a whole lot of nothing- took a hike, swimming, reading. In the late afternoon, we went to the local casino where I won just over $300 on the Village People Party slot machine- hauntingly appropriate. In the evening, we had a nice camp fire followed by a deeply competitive game of chicken foot dominoes, then a quick game of up and down the river. I didn't win any of the games, but my wallet was fat with $20 bills from the casino, which I reminded the Motley Crue of at each opportunity.
Tomorrow it's back to work for a short week. Saturday is Fall Fiesta and we're expecting about 50 people, so I'm taking half a day Thursday and all day Friday to prepare. It's a lot of work to prepare, but the evening of friends and good food completely blots out any recall of sweat equity.
Off to bed I go. Hasta manana.
