January 13, 2009, Between Topeka and St. Louis

As we drove east along I-70 from Topeka, Kansas to St. Louis, Missouri today, there were numerous sites of historic significance we could have visited, to include: President Eisenhower's ancestral home, President Truman's ancestral home, Fort Leavanworth, etc., etc.

We chose, however, to visit this delightful spot instead, located at Kingdom City, MO, just off the Interstate, between Kansas City, MO and St. Louis. This is what seniors do. They try to re-visit the days of their youth. In our case, the "50's. Was there ever a time more enjoyable? I ask you.

Everything you can think of that existed back in the 1950's can be found in this store. We didn't buy anything, but we did have fun walking around and looking at all the old stuff, like poddle skirts, 45 rpm records, old bill board advertisements and 10,000 other miscel things relating to times gone by.

Hey, it was a fun 20-30 minutes. Then we drove on.
