Or should I say, Deep Valley bound? My sister arrived this evening, my bags are packed and we're heading to the airport in the morning to fly to Minneapolis. We'll spend a couple of hours upon arriving in Minneapolis touring Maud Hart Lovelace's homes there, with a stop to see the house that Mary Richards lived in in Mary Tyler Moore and to see the MTM statue (remember to bring hat to throw up in the air). Then we'll drive the 1 1/2 or so hours to Mankato, childhood home of Lovelace and the setting for the Betsy-Tacy Convention! The convention kicks off with Ice Cream at Heinz's Ice Cream Parlor tomorrow night. I think we'll try the Imperial and see if we can finish it (definitely Game Off this weekend). I will also attempt my first vlog on this trip so stay tuned!
