Time for a break

   "On three," he said. "One, two, three...lift!!"
   While hoisting a piece of sheetrock high onto the wall, I said to my contractor, "Let's blow this pop stand next weekend and get away," fully expecting him to say, "Are you kidding?! We've got a project to finish."
  "Hell, yes," he grunted.
  In life, just as in sheetrock hanging, timing is everything.
  I think we'll check out Omaha.  It's close, it's supposed to have a cool downtown and there's a bridge named for Bob Kerrey.  What's not to love?

And it has a Penzey's. :) Omaha compares favorably with KC with its western 'burbs feeling very Overland Park-ish. Check out the zoo, the Lauritzen Botanical Gardens and the Old Market area, which has some great places to eat.

Thanks, Kim! We're staying in the Old Market (or adjacent to it) and will definitely go to the zoo. Other than that, I'm going to schedule a lot of down time...and steak eating!
