Drove to Columbus this morning to pick up Renee's new Tesla. We're essentially all electric now.
Today was a long day, but a great one. After the trip to Columbus and back, Renee had her annual back to school party for faculty and staff. It's always a great event and gets us out in downtown Toledo, which is fun. Afterwards we stopped into our favorite restaurant, Registry Bistro, literally two minutes before they closed and asked the bartender if we could sit for just one round. She was wonderful, and obliged. So, we had a round with friends and had some wonderful conversation in the process.
I opted for a mixed drink - a "Mr. Howell" as it's known. Turns out rum and "blended scotch" is pretty ok, as our good friend Richard would say.
Downtown Toledo is such a gem. Tonight had plenty of activity on a beautiful summer evening. People everywhere. We had an our dinner party at one restaurant and walked to another a few blocks away for a late drink. The Mud Hens were in town for a game earlier in the day, and Toledo hosted its Pride Parade earlier in the day. Toledo is a gem. Most people don't realize that.
I caught this view back into the building as we left the second restaurant. It made me think of how much I love downtown Toledo.
Thurston Howell III - Wikipedia (wikipedia.org)
Gilligan's Island wasn't among my favorite shows as a kid, but I'm sure I've seen every episode...twice. Thurston Howell "the third" was such a great character. I imagine he was a single malt guy, though. No "blended scotch" for him. Although, when stranded on an uncharted desert isle, I'm sure "the millionaire and his wife" would have gladly accepted a "Mr. Howell" with its blended scotch and rum.
