AN EASY TRAIL

TODAY'S TRAIL WAS A MIGHT EASIER ALONG THE THE EASTERN SHORE OF THE MISSOURI RIVER AND ON INTO THE SIOUX NATION.  CAN YOU TELL WE'VE SPENT THE LAST TWO DAYS DAYS LISTENING TO WESTERN BOOKS ON CD AS WE DRIVE?

WE PAST SIOUX CITY, IOWA, SIOUX CITY NEBRASKA, AND NORTH SIOUX CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA ON OUR WAY TO SIOUX FALLS, SOUTH DAKOTA.  WE HAVE ENJOYED OUR AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN SIOUX FALLS. 

 THE OFFICE LADY WE DID OUR BUSINESS WITH WAS SO NICE AND PROVIDED US WITH A $59 COUPON ON A $130 HOTEL ROOM.  THE PRETTY ASSISTANT MANAGER THAT CHECKED US INTO THE HOTEL WAS ALSO VERY NICE AND TOOK CARE OF MAILING SOME BUSINESS PAPERS FOR US.

  THE LADY AT THE HY-VEE LIQUOR DEPOT, EXPLAINED THE SOUTH DAKOTA SMOKING LAWS AND VERY PLEASANTLY DIRECTED US TO OLD CHICAGO, AN ITALIAN BAR AND GRILL THAT ALLOWED SMOKING.  SHE ALSO REMINDED US TO GAS UP UP OUT FRONT OF THE HY-VEE AT TWELVE CENTS PER GALLON OFF WITH OUR STORE RECEIPT.

BRENT OUR WAITER, AT OLE CHICAGO, KEPT "GRANDMA JACK'S"  GLASS FULL AND MY MILLER BEER BOTTLE NEVER GOT EMPTY.   WE ENJOYED AN ITALIAN SALAD AND REAL COD FISH AND CHIPS FOR LUNCH.

MARY SAID, " THE PEOPLE OF SIOUX FALLS ARE SURE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL TODAY".  YOU KNOW MARY, YOU ARE RIGHT!  THERE IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT THE PEOPLE OF SIOUX FALLS,  SOUTH DAKOTA.  YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?

THEY ALL SPEAK ENGLISH AND THEY ARE ALL WHITE!!!  MAN, WE'VE BEEN OUT WEST A LONG TIME !!!   I'M JUST A SAY'IN. 

 PUT UP THE HONDA, YONDER UNDER THAT SHADY COTTONWOOD TREE WILL YA, PARD?

I noticed the same thing on my trip to Janeville WI last week, now if only I could remember the name of the draft beer on tap Cabin something? It sure was good, just like old time beer.Have a safe trip home, Sam & Donna.
