Another hammer down driving day.

Tonight we're camped at a Flying J (my fav :) in St. Louis, Missouri.

Earlier we visited the St. Louis waterfront on the Mississippi River and saw the Arch. Pix below.

Sorry for the short narrative today. Not much happening except for driving.

Enjoy the pix.

Still another sign for June. St. Louis Arch... More Arch...
And still more Arch. Here's the rig at the Flying J. You can hopefully get a better sense of it with the top raised. Thanks for cleaning the windows Pat! (I think the black pickup is jealous :) Rear of the rig. The stepping stool is for us old folks :)

Some more bumper stickers from Betty in IA:

  • When you are not looking at it, this sentence is in Spanish.
  • Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
  • Out of my mind. Back in five minutes
  • As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools
  • Laugh alone and the world thinks you're an idiot
  • Sometimes I wake up grumpy; Other times I let her (him) sleep
  • The gene pool could use a little chlorine
  • I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian
  • Life is not permanent. Do not take it seriously.
  • What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?
  • The police never think it's as funny as you do.
  • Closed minds always seem to be connected to open mouths.

From Denise in IN:

Dress code for Seniors

Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:

1. A nose ring and bifocals

2. Spiked hair and bald spots

3. A pierced tongue and dentures

4. Miniskirts and support hose

5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads

6. Speedo's and cellulite

7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar

8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor

9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge

10. Bikinis and liver spots

11. Short shorts and varicose veins

12. Inline skates and a walker

And last, but not least, ... my personal favorite:

13. Thongs and Depends

Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop.
