Then it occurred to me that my best blogging probably happens while I'm on the road (not that you would ever see it; it rarely makes it this far these days). If I were to join the cellular phone age, jumping all the way forward to the new iPhone, perhaps I could simply dictate my entries to the phone while driving and them have them emailed away to be posted.
I don't see that upgrade happening any time soon.
Anyway, I am on the road--for fun this time--and took a few hours to stretch my legs in Hannibal yesterday. Hannibal is a town where I always enjoy stopping and generally I threaten to come back and spend more time there.
Eight hours on the road yesterday with nothing more than a foldable map (no fancy talking devices for me, thanks) and I only missed my turn once. I figured it out right away and when I went back, I immediately figured out the reason. This pumpkin stand had distracted me from watching the road signs. It was directly across from the way I should have gone.
May Peace Prevail on Earth -- stick by the mighty Mississippi at Hannibal, Missouri.
