Today is our pre-departure day. We decided to head out Tuesday instead of Wednesday. Paul joined us for coffee outside and we watched Magic watch a chipmunk eating bird seed by our rig. The chipmunk was a few inches away and Magic just watched him. Now it’s on to our projects. We headed out to meet our niece Ady and her fiance Ivan for dinner at La Pesa in Palatine. We decided not to stay for their wedding in a couple weeks but it was great to be able to spend quality time with them at dinner. We stopped for a nightcap of wine at Hotel California with Rich, Sandy and Paul.
