Don't you just love the weekends? I am really looking forward to a little "down time" after the craziness of the recent flood. And there is so much happening in and around Cedar Rapids, that I'd like to suggest you join me in celebrating the end of another long work week with some fun time of your own!

Friday night, I'll be glued to the TV for the start of the Cub series in the MLB Playoffs! I really believe this is the year they will win it all.

If you're not a Cubs fan, I might suggest you take in the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders game Friday night at the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena. It's always a great place to grab a beer and catch some exciting hockey action. They also play Saturday night!

For Saturday afternoon, I'm thinking of taking in some of the early autumn colors, as the leaves are starting to turn. Here's a suggestion on a few road trips you can plan during the next few weekends.

 

On Sunday my heart belongs to Jesus, and the Dallas Cowboys, of course.

But I'm actually looking forward to Monday and that may seem a bit weird...

Monday? Really?

Yes! Because it's the Def Leppard concert at the US Cell Center. I hope to see you there!

That'll be me.
