And now, it's time for a Post-Weekend Q&A --

Q: Why did you go to Cleveland?
A: Because there were direct flights and neither of us had ever been.

Q: Will you go back to Cleveland?
A: Not unless there's someone to visit, or a specific event to attend, because quite frankly, there didn't seem to be much to do there. We went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But otherwise, there didn't seem to be much to attract tourists. There were museums, but given how many there are here, that's just not something we seek out on our travels.

Q: How was the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?
A: It was enjoyable. It has a wealth of information together with some neat exhibits. Probably my favorite was a large temporary one focused on Bob Dylan, 1957-1966 -- we could have spent hours there listening to all the music and watching all the film they had available.

Q: You couldn't have spent the whole time at the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame, so what else did you do?
A: We visited a beach along Lake Erie, and walked some of the many trails in the area. We saw X-Men 3 (don't bother). Of course we checked out brewpubs.

Q: So you had a bad time?
A: Not at all -- we had a great time. It had been a couple of months since we'd gotten out of town, and many more since it'd just been the two of us (I think it was London last August), so we really enjoyed breaking out of our routine.

Q: Any pictures?
A: Glad you asked -- here's a great shot of Kathy showing off her belly on a gray morning out on Lake Erie.

FWIW, the position she was in and the maternity shirt she was wearing really accentuated the bulge -- she hasn't looked that pregnant in the three days since the photo was taken.
