Leisurely Saturday morning at home, marking 39 years of marriage to the light of my life, Brenda. Good long walk on one of the many trails in Springfield built on abandoned rail beds. Sad that there are no more trains on them, but glad to have access. Puttered around the house before heading off to Effingham in the early evening (flying solo this time due to pet care issues). Effingham has risen in prominence since becoming the nexus of two major Interstate highways. Unfortunately, neither one goes anywhere near Springfield! So it was a hundred scenic miles on seco dary roads. Glad to hear from daughter in NYC that she's ready to ride out the storm.
