Ten places Where I Would Love to Spend October
Rangers season is over. No playoffs. No World Series. Waiting on the Rangers post-mortems, probably coming on Wednesday. Lots of new stuff today on the website. So what now? Just day-dreaming about places I’d love to take Helen and Toby if the refrigerator was working and that state university didn’t need to be fed. Pictures will have to do for now. What’s the lottery up to this week?
“I would have liked to have seen Montana!” Russian sub executive, the Hunt for Red October.
