I started home on the expressway but eventually came to my senses, got back to a two-lane, and stumbled across a one of a kind jail house.

Not too warm but not the least bit wet. A good day to roam the streets.

The day started and ended in rain with just a little, deeply appreciated, sunlight in between. Highlights were driving across a crooked bridge and eating a breaded hot dog.

Not much of prelude for this one. I had known of the big festival in Illinois for a long time. In fact, since this is the event's second year, I could have made plans months go. But it was only on Wednesday that I started thinking that I might actually be able to attend. My interest had be raised by increasing e-group chatter and work projects seemed sufficiently under control to permit a short absence.
