|Some governmenty looking building in London, OH|
|Clever. This was for some hospital's Emergency Room|
Our delivery was in Delaware, OH and we drove through some pretty backwoodsy areas. These people raise ducks, chickens and even pea hens
|I'd like to raise some chickens when we settle back down someday|
Mr. Trucker says his father also wants to raise some Banty hens
so Mr. Trucker's mother better get prepared!
|Bye bye, Ohio|
|Shelton World's Largest Fireworks Store|
Our next stop was in Indianapolis
|I wonder if Emeril attended here|
|downtown Indy. I don't think we can drive down that street|
|Actually saw a helicopter land here|
|Cute shop that appeared to have lots of eye candy|
|In case you were wondering...they're open|
|There's still some fall color to be had from time to time|
|Sears tower at night. Only, apparently it isn't called|
the Sears tower anymore
|Does ANYBODY know what this building is?|
We've been trying to figure it out
|Well, BESIDES panhandlers, that is...|
Actually, this poor guy looked like he was really just down on
his luck, and not a professional panhandler, so we gave
him some money
|That's right, dear readers. We scored us some|
Jim's Original for lunch
|Mr. Trucker LIKES the hot peppers they always include|
|I tried the "pork chop (with bone) on a bun" this time.|
It was not worth the hassle of eating it.
We made it to Wisconsin early for our next two deliveries. While there, we saw this lovely vehicle
|The owner was pretty proud to have me take his picture|
The rims rotate when the car is stopped
|That's right. Say it with me...Wauwatosa|
Because of not being able to shower every day and my hair getting longer and thicker on top, it has become necessary for me to wear a hat on my non-shower days, or risk being laughed at. The green beret I knitted has stretched badly and doesn't look that great. I have become enamored of slouchy hats for some reason, and have been searching for patterns on the internet. The other day I crocheted one
|I cellphoned a picture to Sassy and she said I looked gangsta!|
|I actually really like the way this looks on me,|
and that's saying something!
Before buying the Ben & Jerry's, we walked around quite a bit in Beloit, trying to decide where to eat dinner. Sometimes we can be so indecisive! We almost ended up at the Road Dawg, they had a very popular all-you-can-eat buffet, one of those with the crab legs. I hate those places. As always, it was packed with people who were gorging themselves on crab legs. Entire families, with the kids ploughing their way through huge plates heaped with crab legs and other plates heaped with the shells. There is just something very wrong about that whole thing. Mr. Trucker and I don't like buffets because we never feel like we eat as much food as we paid for and therefore are subsidizing all the people who eat way more than their share...
Our frugality kicked in at the last second and we ended up at Subway, splitting a $5.00 footlong meatball sub. It felt good to be in Wisconsin for a day or two, we were so close to home, we could almost touch it. And we are supposed to be going home for our first home time in two months either tomorrow or Monday. We thought maybe our dispatches would keep us in WI until then, but no...we are now on our way to southern Illinois (nearly to St. Louis) to drop off and then pick up a load that we will sit on until 5:00 a.m. Monday, when we deliver it in Melrose
Place Park, Illinois. Then hopefully, the dispatcher won't keep us waiting on pins and needles for the load that will take us home, for a week!!!
Today's Silly Sounding Place Name (from our own dear state): Mukwonago, Wisconsin!
