"Bob's Last Art Show"

Since I was unable to get to Springfield, IL for "Bob (Waldmire)'s Last Art Show", I'm grateful to those who have posted photos and reports on the event. Apparently it was highly successful, to the point of being almost overly crowded. Excellent! Some good photos of the event can be seen at Denny Gibson's site: There are some other neat Route 66 pictures there, too. Denny writes a really excellent daily blog every time he goes on a road trip, and his observations always make me want to follow in his tire tracks.

Today, I had my first "day off" since April (i.e. a day when I had neither Afton nor dialysis), and I put it to good use. First, I gave in to a need to do some shopping. I hate to shop, but sometimes it's just plain necessary. I rewarded myself afterwards with a breakfast of steak and eggs at Jimmy's Egg. For the rest of the day, I've been at home cleaning up loose ends here. My life now seems at least semi-organized.

Since I hate a blog entry without a photo, here's one of the four pressed pennies I offer in my penny squasher at Afton Station.

I wish I could have gone to see Bob, too. I never had the opportunity to meet him.

I hope I'll meet him in Heaven.
