Well arrived here last night safe and sound.
After I stopped at the library yesterday in Jefferson City I carried on past the state prison musuem which unfortunately was closed - they do tours. The ghoul in me would enjoy that. A couple of high profile prisoners were there: James Earl Ray, Sonny Liston, Pretty Boy Floyd and more. I guess I could have gone by the side and seen where the gas chamber had been but I declined.
I carried on...up and down and up and down...sheesh. The people who live in Jeff City (so it's called) must be in good shape!!! I rewarded myself at Central Dairy with a double scoop of ice cream. Man oh man for three dollars I got a bloody PINT of ice cream!!! I never would have ordered two if I'd known it was that much but I got it finished! It was good but not the best I've had - cherry vanilla and chocolate/nut go very well together by the way!!!
Back to the hotel to rest for a bit then dragged my luggage up and down to the downtown area. You don't want to know what I was saying!!! Definitely not lady like language. I stopped at Cafe Roma for a soup and a pumpkin chai latte. Then headed down to the Amtrak station. Everything was bang on time and in fact we got into St Louis early.
As I was leaving the station I could see a metro train leaving but that was okay - I was opposite the Scottrade Centre and there was a huge sign saying "Welcome back Paul McCartney" and I shrieked out loud - I AM GOING TO SEE HIM!!! Now that I am here it seems real. And yes I know I've seen him a million times but it never gets old. Paul and I both do..but the thrill never does. :)
The metro trip took about half an hour and called the shuttle and they were there in ten minutes.
So am just relaxing and working on stuff - Pat is due at the hotel in about two hours and the birthday fun begins. Yes she is finally going to see Paul on her birthday.
Next up adding pictures....
