Greetings from Arcola, IL !

Hello, my pretties!

Just a short message from me while I'm down here in Arcola, this morning.

We had a good time down here, seeing the Amish, eating unbelievable food, and seeing the sites.

We went to see the log cabin where Abe Lincoln grew up. It was his father's cabin and their farm. It was funny. We were there 15 min. before they opened. Who greets us but an orange and white cat. Who does he walk up to first? My husband, naturally. I guess news of him being the Cat Whisperer has gotten around.

Yesterday rained the whole time, but we got to one of the local places. If you get down here. Go out toward Arthur, on 133, and find Yoder's Kitchen. The fried chicken is the best!

Well, today we will be heading out. Not sure if we'll go see anything, since it's foggy. I guess we'll just wait until the fog lifts. It only took 3 hours--of course we stopped and had lunch once. But not a bad drive. Thing is, you don't want to come here on Monday. Most of the shops are closed. And Rockome Gardens is NOT open until Wednesday. But these are things to see. Next time I guess we'll try and get here on days that that is open.

Well, I thought I would just do a quick update, and clean up my blog since I was able to jump on a computer here at  the motel (Best Western), and use their fast internet to do all this in very little time. Now I know what the rest of you enjoy! I'm envious.


  1. Cats just have that instinctive awareness that says, "this person I can twist around my paw..."

  2. Very descriptive blog, I loved that bit. Will there be a part 2?

  3. Hey there excellent website! Does running a blog such as this take a lot of work?
    I've virtually no understanding of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I simply had to ask. Many thanks!

  4. Hi there! This blog post could not be written any better!
    Going through this post reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He always kept preaching about this.
    I'll forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
