Day 2 & 3 “Obey God’s words”


Day 2 & 3 “Obey God’s words”

We’ve hit the red states. We’ve increased the Jewish population by 200%…where’s our damn parade? After we left Springfield #1 (Ohio) we made our way west to Springfield #2 (Illinois). We met with the other 2 Jews from the state, our own relatives Edward & Sonia Gerson. We had a really nice visit with them. They showed us the new Lincoln Museum and we had a tour of Downtown Springfield before a much-needed belly busting dinner at Olive Garden. St. Louis was the next stop… only 2 hrs. in the car! Thanks Karen & Kevin for the place to crash, but no thanks to you Kia (their dog) for sitting on Diana’s head at the buttcrack of dawn. Literally. (Only this time no bribing, just beer buying). City Museum was awesome! We bullied our way past the snotty kids and took full advantage of the gerbil tubes. Esti patiently stared at Diana’s butt, since she was there a month before. Said our goodbyes to K-squared and took gift of Schlafly’s beer back on the road! It seems like the farther we enter “god’s country” the more Adult store we see. In fact the last 3 were Superstores (with the obligatory billboard “pornography hurts everyone”





Lessons learned
-Secure your wallet in your pants at the City Museum
-Jesus said Guns save Lives
-Gerbil tube concussions are fun (that means Esti drives)
-Oh yeah, NO WHITE CASTLE (the place that shall not be named)
-Not all Truck Drivers are men (just 99.9% of them)

Casualties
Still no banana
Several Carrots
Brain cell disappearance, no thanks to City museum
½ the gorp
Diana’s wallet was taken off the casualty list earlier today

that deleted comment up there was me. silly blogs not being able to post URLs.

anyway, i was trying to say that i was surprised that the movie 'a man with two heads' didn't make the cut with quite possibly the best car chase ever.

esti - i'm going to your house today.

hope you guys are having fun!!
