Out of the Blue

MrsBlue and I are now in the land of 14,000 lakes. There were no setbacks or issues, but with a couple of hours laid-over in Detroit this was basically an all day journey. But as I say, it went pretty smoothly, and we arrived safe and sound, so it all worked out fine. We're still rushing about, as the funeral is pretty early today. There are other obligations lined up after that, this may well be another one-update day, but I expect things to be much more normal by tomorrow.

If 14,000 lakes is the land of 10,000 lakes, welcome and condolences. If you need a tour of Surly Brewing while you're in town, let me know.

It is the land of 10,000 lakes. My reference dates back to the first trip we took I mentioned. At the time I mistakenly called it the land of a thousand lakes, an error I recently heard repeated by the announcer at a Vikings game. Someone here corrected me, and, amazed that there could be 10,000 lakes in one state, I read about it, learning that this is understated, and that Minnesota actually has more than 14,000 lakes. In fact, the article I saw when I just Googled this for verification says there are more than 15,000 lakes here, so they must have had a recount.

And thank you for the offer, but our plate (growler?) here is just too full.
