Yesterday winter tried to make a real comeback. In spite of that, we did take two long walks on new paths. The snow was wet and we probably got two inches. In the afternoon Al and I went to Aldi’s to check it out. It’s arranged just like the one in Mankato, but the choices weren’t quite the same. There were beers, liquors and a large variety of wines to buy. The cheeses and meats (packaged) but so interesting and delicious – as we found out when we got home. And then there were the chocolates!!! Some were for Easter, but most looked like they’re there all the time. Walking through required incredible self control.
Next we shared a pastry and each had a coffee in a shop at the Wasgau. That’s an upscale grocery/bakery.
The excitement of the day came when Al got an email that Michael Keller will be going to help the Saints in New Orleans for six weeks during the preseason. To say Michael is excited doesn’t really cover it.
Today, Wednesday, Al and I are taking the train to Frankfurt to meet Steve and Barb Wilkinson. He is the retired tennis coach from Gustavus. I was in a book club with Barb all the years we lived in St. Peter. We’re looking forward to seeing them.
