I found my thrill at Blueberry Hill!

Taking in Mark Twain's House Lovely Palmyra, Mo

Supper at Blueberry Hill
Me, Huck and Tom
What a long weekend! Our friends Kevin, Dirk and Florian from Ersingen, Germany were in town this weekend , so a good time was in store. I nice evening out to Johnny's, McGurks, Square One Brewery and world famous O'Malley's Pub were our stops Friday night. Good times and spirits had by all. Eight A.M. came much too fast! Thanks Reese and Tatum.

My brother Todd, then had an Oktoberfest party on Saturday. He and his brother in law made some very good home brew. He even picked up some most excellent brats from Shubert's Meat Market in Millstadt, IL. Needless to say, we were all very tired and went to bed early.

That led us to Sunday where I had planned to take the guys up to Palmyra and Hannibal, Mo for a Civil War re-enactment. When we got all the way up to Palmyra, the battle had been cancelled due to the extreme wind. What a waste that was. When then caught a small portion of Porter's Raid, but was not really worth the time either.

Our stop in Hannibal was a good one though. They were having a Fall Festival and the booths and crowds were good. We hiked up to the lighthouse and then down to the Mighty Mississippi. The guys from Germany were surprised at how dirty the water was. We then took a quick photo opp at Mark Twain's house and then headed back to the Lou. A stop at Blueberry Hill in University City for supper was the next stop. As usual the burgers were tops and the Heffe was cold! The girls had fun getting their pictures made in the old time photo booth.

The last and most important stop in our day was the World Famous Ted Drewes just off the historic Route 66. My Oreo-cookie dough concrete was tasty!! The girls and guys liked their concretes as well.
