We had a wonderful lunch with Charlie at one of the top taverns in town, called the Munchen..great name!...delicious brats, German potato salad, hot dogs and 12 kinds of mustard to choose from to put on your brat along with all the other fixings! This restaurant is so popular, the same owners opened a microbrewery down the street.
After lunch, we decided to stop over at Charlie's fiance's house, she lives just about a block off the town center. Charlie had left his car there, so he says he's going to ride with us. Now, most full time RVers have their tow car full to the brim of STUFF that you can't fit in the motorhome, or think you are better off storing in the car, like two sets of golf clubs, an assortment of coats, hats, tote boxes and miscellaneous other stuff that I'm not sure of what it is, I just know the car is buried from the front seat backs almost to the ceiling. Eldy and I look at each other and laughed, because we know we're gonna have to move all the stuff from one side of the car to the other, and then put one of the passenger seats back up so my tall brother, over 6 foot tall, can ride with us. We don't mind doing that at all, it's just going to take awhile! Charlie opens up the car, there's a brief pause, and then he says, "No problem, I can fit in here. " I'm protesting that he should get in the front, but nope! He folds himself up like a pretzel and we ride the block to Kris's house. Here's Charlie, crammed into the back seat. (Yeah, but is he going to be able to get OUT?) Yep, he did!
Charlie can be very silly.....he sure is a lot of fun to be around....Tomorrow we're going to visit Charlie, his finance, Kris and her kids and head out on a lake in the area to celebrate one of her daughter's birthdays...I think we're going to maybe go tubing! See you tomorrow!
I sure love my brother Charlie!
