Last night turned out to be Quality Time With Parents Night. Mom and Dad took me to Austin's (Midwest steakhouse chain) after work. Loved the country-fried chicken, but I can still taste the Onion Flower (Is there a restaurant chain that doesn't have their own version of that?) even though I ate it more than twelve hours ago. After dinner, we finally took down the Christmas decorations. Ever notice it's always more fun to put that stuff up than take it down?
