Hey Kayak Woman, below are pictured a few things that you don’t have to fling. You might want to wash them out though. Four hot, sweaty and dusty guys for your birthday.
I met these four guys a couple of summers ago on the Katy Trail. The Katy is a rails-to-trails bike path that nearly spans the State of Missouri, east-to-west. They had started from California and were eventually headed to someplace on the East coast. Their goal on this day was Saint Louis. One of them had an uncle in town. There were two things that they wanted to see, while visiting the Lou, the Arch, naturally, but also Crown Candy Kitchen. Crown Candy is a venerable soda fountain on the near north side. I had no idea that its fame had reached so far and wide, but when we stop there, we tend to do takeout, too crowded.
Cousin Anne, happy birthday, and happy trails to you!
