As it turns out, it just took the drive to the Bierstube, with the anticipation of tender, crispy, schnitzel (and maybe a German beer) to turn my mood around :-) The schnitzel was even more tender, and even more crispy tonight. The beer wasn't really cold, but was that special flavour that only a German wheat beer could have. And the company was as fun as ever.
Back at the trailer listening to 70s music again - this time it doesn't seem as depressing ;-)
I hope everyone is safe in Medicine Hat.
