Vacation 2014 Part 2

We drove on to Clinton and ended up at the Route 66 Museum.  It looks really cool from the outside.

We enter into the foyer and it was also pretty neat, with a lot of old reminders of times past.

We paid out entry fee and started going through the museum.  There were some people in front of us from Finland and they were traveling Route 66 by motorcycle.  The museum was very small and it did not take us long to go through. 

But, of course before we left the town of Clinton we had to go here!

Best store ever!!!   I would not let Dennis go in this store for reasons known only to caregivers of people in power chairs!  Much love, Cheri

Vacation 2014 Part 1

 As you probably know Dennis and I quit going anywhere for vacation after about three years of having to pack up all his stuff and unloading and setting up and etc.  It was not a vacation for me and he wasn't tolerating the climate very well, I needed a vacation when I got home from vacation.  I miss those days when you could go throw your clothes in a bag and take off, but as we say in the SCI world we have a new normal.  We take day trips and last year we went to the bombing memorial and it was quite the trip.  Bombing Memorial this is the link and there is a part one and part two.  This year Dennis decided we needed to go see the Route 66 car museum in Clinton and I decided to humor him because I knew there were a couple of antiques store in Clinton that I needed to check out.  We started the day and I left my purse at home so we got to go back and get it!  We stopped at Roman Nose Resort to eat lunch and it was wonderful.
We pretty much had the place to ourselves although there was one other couple from our hometown there!  We ordered appetizers to eat and they made me homemade guacamole since they were out.  Great meal!

The start of the day couldn't have been better!  Much love, Cheri
