I guess it just happened that mornings are best for me to drive and that was when all the storms started. For two days on our return from Rolla, Missouri, it rained in the morning and cleared off in the afternoon. We left behind the military who all looked bald headed because at boot camp they make them shave off all their hair with one exception – the women – they had to wear their hair in a tight skin pulling bun so it looked like they didn’t have hair either!
We crossed the Missouri River about six times – apparently it winds through the state like a snake. It is a very winding river compared to the Snake River in Idaho.
I am very glad that it was not flooding when we were there.
On our way home, we stopped at the infamous Dairy Queen and there I saw an unusual sight. This very tall and thin young lady was wearing black pants (trousers for you Brits) which had orange tiger paws on the butt – well they were not tight and it wouldn’t have matter anyway because she had a very very flat bottom.
