Last night was Dawn's birthday and I tried to show her a great time. Five years ago was our first "real" date and I took her downtown to the Elevator Brewery and she loved it. This year I obviously had to do a little better. We first went downtown a little early to watch the Grand Illumination along the Scioto Mile. Pretty awesome.
We then went back to the Elevator, shared a couple of GREAT meals and tried a few of their samplers. After that we went to Hollywood Casino where she had a lot of fun for $20 and managed to stretch that for an hour and a half. She was on fire for a while. We went downtown and met a few friends. Lots of fun.
Today we had the Toys for Tots drive at the station and I was out there helping to collect the generous donations from 2PM-4PM. It was exciting to hang out with some of the co-workers and just chat outside of the newsroom for once. My last two stations had a much younger crowd and we went out a lot, but as I move on up, so do the ages of the co-workers and their lives are much busier with kids, etc. Another great time...
Increasing clouds heading into Sunday. Scattered light rain showers on
an off through the day on Sunday with mild temps as highs climb into the
low 60's. A lingering shower possible
for Monday as high reach the mid-upper 60's, but a better chance for
rain Tuesday as a cold front swings through bringing cooler temperatures
for the middle of the week. We dry out briefly before another cold
front near week's end. Keep the umbrella handy
and have a good one!
