Have YOU Been to Wall Drug?

Here's a great website: Roadside America, featuring all the bizarre, kitschy things you can find at the proverbial side of the road, including Wall Drug, the Corn Palace, and the Murdo Auto Museum (see Elvis' motorcycle!). What do these three attractions have in common? That's right! They're all in godforsaken South Dakota! And Mary and I have been to all three! Particularly memorable was Mitchell, SD, where Mary and I drove around for an hour (after our visit to the Corn Palace) looking for a McDonald's that the sign claimed was there but didn't actually exist. Visit the Roadside America website and be embarrassed by how many of these place YOU'VE been to.

I've just finished an absolutely hysterical book, Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. Lamb answers the question "what the heck happened to Christ in the 30 years between his birth and his ministry?" With a style like Douglas Adams (to quote the Amazon entry), Lamb is a very funny poke at history and the Bible. Check your Christian Coalition card at the door.

The Corn Palace - such fond memories of that place! I think that was the highlight of the trip - that and the snow storm in Wyoming ("Looks like ya'll slid of the road there...")
