Laura - Day 2

Alternately titled Driving Miss Daisy.

We slept in until 8 this morning. It was a good thing we were up by then because at the late great hour of 8:30 it was decided by who knows who that it was necessary to blow the sidewalk off right outside our door. We got our morning under way and went and had breakfast. We hit the highway at 10:30.
This is the state count so far,

The animal count so far is this...
6 VERY dead dear
75 dead raccoons
46 dead turtles
869 unidentifiable fur somethings
and 1 dead cat
and lots of vultures.
NOTHING alive besides cows and a few horses.

My windshield has had a beautiful rainbow of Cicada guts.

As we came through St. Louis we saw the arch. We got to see it from several angles. The only real traffic was in St. Louis. Tonight we are in Hannibal Missouri. It is where Mark Twain is from. Its cute little town.
What is it that makes driving all day that makes you feel so grody?
Well that's it for today.

  1. Ha! The Cicadas sound about right!!! I've been/driven through St. Louis too! Cool Arch by the way! I think you should have posted the title as Driving Miss Daisy :)
