Road trip! I suppose there are folks those two words don't cause a slight rise in the pulse rate, but it's no one that I know. While the apple season is peaking early, there's still a good excuse to drive up to Calhoun County, IL, to buy apples, and perhaps some fresh-pressed cider if you're lucky. Lunch? I've got the place for you.
And maybe it's just me, but this time of year, weekdays are even more fun, retaining that faint air of playing hookey.
