Latest in St louis
A lot of St Louis stuff is Warp showing me the town. I still can;t quite.. figure the size and shape of this city like I can New York, which is vaster but tighter. In NYC I know where the Bronx and Soho and Houston Street and such are. St Louis.. not quite yet. And outside from one GPS-led drive to Silverthorne's hotel, to get the camera I left in his car, warphammer has been the one driving.

Mind, things like Sirius Radio, big plush Lincoln seats, and air conditioning are very good reasons to take his car, and then, he's driving. Still, when he has to work on Wednesday-Friday, I might do more tooling about the city to try and learn this place a little more.

Sunday Warp, Silverthorne, and I visited Grant's Farm, which was nice. Clydesdale stables had the big ol' hosses; the 'farm' portion had lots of grazing animals.. buffalo. Texas longhorns, Red Deer, other hoofers; and the zoo had super-cute fennecs and Bald Eagles with droopy wings. Poor guys. A lot of the "These birds are too injured to return to the wild" things, one can't see exactly why.. but in these, you could see the wings hanging limpish. Sad, even though one knows they're being well-cared for.

Monday, some tooling around the city. saw some of the Missouri History Museum, which had a very neat flight section and a exhibit on the World's Fair that was held there. The mindboggling.. size of the World's Fairs is something I never quite grasped before. Big. Biiiiiiiiiig. After that, hung out with Basher for a bit, then to get num num Caramel frappe at Coffee Cartel. Yes. Name is groovy.

Today, off to Springield, IL. mmm. Pizza machine.

Bwahahah, so now I know I can get you lost if I try. Yes it's an odd place unless you live here...

Did you see the one building left over from the fair? if not I will show you -- it's not too far from where we'll park tomorrow to hop onto the train (that reminds me, have $5 or so on you for the fare).

I can take you around W-F... think about where you want to go and let me kno when we talk later tonight. and I have A/C in my car, and Sirius Radio, and nice leather seats.

No more Bob Button, sadly. I flashed a firmware update onto the navunit and it reset all the presets...

Didn't notice said building, anope!

We'll talk about plans for later in the week tomorrow, indeed. I and Warp will need to come by for the fuel filter install on Meefer, probably Thursday.
