Today we picked up my mother (who for some reason is not in any of these pictures) and hit The Mother Road. These trips lately are for an article I am writing, so I don't want to write everything here, but here is a glimpse of a few fun things--and I'll link up the article when it's published!
I noticed this one because I think Richard Peck mentioned the Hupmobile in A Long Way From Chicago. (As an addendum to my previous post, you should read A Season of Gifts, about the same characters. Also, I just checked out Secrets at Sea and noticed that on the cover, Lemony Snicket says,"If you don't like books by Richard Peck, there is probably something very wrong with you." I agree.)
We were going to take my mom to see the totem pole, but it doesn't seem there is an exit off of the Interstate for the highway we needed to take--yet another reason to take the long way!
When we got home, we had stew for dinner. You might recall that we are trying to have the favorite food of the president we're learning about each week. This week was William Henry Harrison, who liked squirrel stew and hard cider. The squirrel in the bowl on the table is as close as we're going to get to that in my kitchen. God bless John Tyler for liking pudding since next week is a crazy week!
