Dinner at the Country Club

We have a zillion errands to run, as usual. on this Saturday morning. I don't want to
overdo it because we also plans for dinner out tonight.

Our favorite restaurant in town closed about a month ago. The landlord wouldn't renew his lease
so the best place to eat in town has now moved to another town. Good job Fondy !
The chef/owner has moved to the Oshkosh Country Club. This is a private club but they have opened it to the public this Saturday and next Saturday. When I got this email announcing this I called Mark and told him we have got to go. I miss his food so much.
We don't eat out much but Chef Mark ( I know too many Mark's in the world ) has a flair for doing everything right. His food is creative and nutritious and I have never had a bad meal there.
So off we go to the Country Club tonight. I haven't eaten at a country Club since we lived in Pinehurst, NC. ( Where we lived before moving to Wisconsin ) I am curious to see what a Wisconsin Country Club really is. We invited some friends to join us. That will be nice. These are extra special people. You can tell the "locals" from the "transplants" here in town.
We " Transplants" have a tendency to stick together because we often don't understand the
lifestyle here. Fondy isn't a bad town just a backwards kind of 1950's town.
I can't begin to tell you how many people I have met here who have never been on a plane
or in another State.
I, for the record, have been to 38 States. Practically lived in airports when I was in sales and have been to Mexico, Canada , The Caribbean, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico.
This summer we are going to Italy, Greece, Croatia and Germany.
I don't understand the concept of " making do". There is a big world out there and I want to see every square inch of it.
My first goal is and always has been to visit all 50 States. Something I will do. Mark my words.
Something every American should do. Our country is first and foremost the most beautiful place on earth.
Tonight though I am going to the Country Club for dinner. Mark and I were married at a Country Club in California. ( The best dam day of my life ) We have lived on numerous golf courses and although I traded in my golf clubs for my MS ( is that a fair trade? ) I still enjoy the golf atmosphere.
My golfing days are over. I wasn't much good at it but the outfits were cute. LOL

Have a great day everybody. Go golfing !! LOL

Can't wait to hear how the Country Club was and Chef Mark's dinner!

I also can't imagine not wanting to explore this great world of ours as much as possible. I love to travel, now if I could get my MS to cooperate with my traveling that would be great!

I voted for the "I do shots" Tshirt - that could mean so many things and it's a fun saying! :)
