Well it’s been a good visit with my dad, I really enjoyed seeing him; it’s been so long. He doesn’t seem like he’s sick at all. My step-mother is another story – ugh talk about the epitomy of being the “wicked step-mother” well – she’s it! We made a few stops on the way home – first in Festus, MO to Lamberts Cafe; the kids loved the throwed rolls. Then we stopped in Belvidere, IL so I could show them where I grew up.
