“Don’t mix business and pleasure,” says the old proverb, but this vacation worked out well with both — a trip to Lambeau Field for a professional conference with lots of fun and sightseeing with my family too. (Trust me, the actual body of water Green Bay is big, and it’s just a bay on Lake Michigan with is really big! And the town Green Bay is delightful, though very much centered on the Packers. You can see Lambeau Field from all over town and navigate by the street that runs right by — Lombardi Street, of course.) I could have acted dignified on conference day, I suppose, but I went around instead during free time taking pictures with classic Packers art.
- Great regional jet service through our own community airport, the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport.
- Dinner at a restaurant that serves elk and other wild game.
- A hotel with plumbing so advanced, the three-head shower has an electronic control panel.
- Opening authors’ meeting for a book I’m writing together with three good friends.
Here I am below with Coach Lombardi:
