Paducah Bound!

We were rolling across the prairie today on our big bus, cruising in style and comfort.  So easy to watch the miles roll by, a beautiful sunny day, a bit breezy (that's an understatement) and interesting company.  Departed Worthington at 6:30 AM, picked up passengers in Sioux Falls, lunch in St. Joseph, MO, and staying tonight near St. Louis.  Got plenty of knitting and applique done today, caught a short nap, and shared stories. My traveling companions, Leisl and Nancy, are a special treat, and Nancy's candied chex mix doesn't hurt!  You can probably tell from the picture that they are always ready for fun!

We spent last night in Lake Park at my parents' house, thanks for the comfy beds!  We had dinner out with them and Jarry and Mary at a local Mexican restaurant--very good!

We are far enough south that we are seeing trees in bloom, and these blossoms paused from the tornado-like winds just long enough for me to snap a photo.  They won't last long with all the tossing and tearing in the wind, I'm afraid.  Had a little dinner tonight at Ruby Tuesday's, and they have the best white wine sangria!  We requested the recipe and the bartender visited our table to fill us in on the details, it will be great for the summer months.  Need to turn in now, since it is back on the bus for about 6 hours tomorrow before reaching Paducah.  Will keep you informed!
