Roadtrip - July 23, 2013

A year ago I purchased an advance ticket to BlogHer13 in Chicago.

Because The Mother is on the mend from her knee replacement surgery and because The Sister told me to "Go...just go!", I'm on my way to Chicago with The Husband. I'll attend BlogHer and he'll play in Chicago.

Highlights from our drive today:

Years ago, this steer was located at 15th & Utica, Tulsa, OK
in the H. L. Moss parking lot.
Who remembers that?

We revisited Chris Barbee's place today.
This post I wrote in 2010 about this bowling ball yard art
is the most popular post on Cindy's Clipboard, with 4715 page views. 

We looked for Toto. Couldn't find him.

Lunch at a park in Gas, Kansas.
Cold, home fried chicken, fritos and Diet Coke. 

A very sweet man saw Steve taking a picture of me and the Missouri welcome sign.
He turned around on the highway and came back to take a picture of us together.
He says he has done this before. How sweet!
We plan to "pay it forward" someday for people taking photos at a welcome sign!

We drove through the Lake of the Ozarks area.
Look at all the water displayed on the GPS display.

Spending the night in the capital of Missouri - Jefferson City

We had a very nice dinner at Madison's Cafe.
Our waitress, Amanda, was full of personality and very efficient.
The owner, Rob, was very chatty and nice.
We would recommend this place to weary travelers.

Night folks!
