However, it has an infinity pool at the top and this was the reason we wanted to stay there. We check in at 1 AM and are given an upgrade to a huge two room suite with awesome views of the city’s buildings, lights, and water surrounding this city nation. We had 3 flat-screen TV’s, one for the bath room near the bath tub, a pool table and several over-stuffed chairs and couches and a wall of glass for the view.
But the main feature we like is the spa and open air swimming pool area. Complete with palm trees and small waterfalls and a serpentine swimming area, one may think this area could easily be moved to a beach but its vista is a circle of high buildings including the hotel itself. When Judith is off working somewhere, this is where I hang out, soaking up the sun, cooling off with a dip or two and at noon time sundering over to the restaurant of a light lunch and a drink. I usually book a massage every other day coupled with some time spent in the exercise room.

After my parents were divorced, mother embraced the social aspects of the church more and dragged my sister and me along with her. I went to Sunday school for a while with 3 of my buddies and we tormented the poor man trying to instruct us about how Jesus would take care of us if we were good Christians and prayed and worshiped as we should. When we tired of that we stopped going to Sunday school and instead when to a restaurant a block away and ordered soft drinks with our money given to us for the offering. When Sunday school time was up I would leave and join my mother for service. As far as I know, she never knew about my “sinful” conduct.

Marion Civic Theatre has a permanent home now, in the decaying town, built around the county court house, as so many Indiana towns first were established. It is called the James Dean Theatre due to the fact that James Dean was born in Marion and is buried about 20 miles away. Given the age of my readers here, it is with relief that I don’t have to educate anyone about who James Dean was.
