Since the wife got a bad case of
wanderlust yesterday we took a
little cruise upriver to visit
another river town.
Nothing clears the cobwebs out of
the brain-case like a leisurely cruise
down that ebony ribbon we call
the two-lane black top.
Since the Mississippi river runs
east-west through our town it was
a let down to find it looks the
same in a town it runs north-south
But we had a great time, I got a
t-shirt then bought us lunch, and
we cruised back home.
