This was a treasure for us. Catching the Amish after church on Sunday having their time of fun and fellowship. I learned something here. I always pictured the horses still hitched to the wagons and buggies during church services. They weren't. Allthe horses were unharnessed and staked. I guess the horses got to fellowship also.
This was typical land we drove through to reach Missouri.
US63 Still straight ahead.
An Amish buggy, they have already dismissed and heading home from another church service.
After pulling into Greentop, Mo. This was our eening show. a Beautiful sky.
One of the first places we went after touring Kirksville, was the small town of Novinger. This was my first intro duction to a mid western town 50 yrs ago. It had a saloon and wooden board walks.
The town has deteriorated more than any we saw. This was the Saloon. You can barely read it on the window.
The red building was a neat small white church we attended for awhile.
This is just across the street from the red building. Looks pitiful, what a difference a short 50 yrs makes, huh?
Then back to Kirksville, This is the hospital where Sherry gave birth to Mark our youngest. It is being Razed, we caught it just in time. The part where Mark was born has already been hauled off. I was going to go in to see if they took returns, shoot. Anyway this spot is in the middle of the Truman University Campus. So, Mark can say he was born on a University Campus.
