Travelin' shoes

Tonight I find myself (along with Hubby, BIL and SIL) in Abilene, Kansas, the home of General Dwight D. Eisenhower. He was also President of the United States, but when he went  back into the private sector, he preferred to be called "General".  We visited the Eisenhower Museum, Library, and Home. It was quite interesting. Things have changed quite a bit from those times. Did you know that they had to pay for their food while at the White House? That was a surprising fact. That was before presidents were treated like royalty. They have forgotten that they work for us.

We then had supper at Brookville Hotel, and it was deeeelicious!!!!  They have one meal. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed corn (fabulous), biscuits, cole slaw, cottage cheese, and relish plate.

We are leaving in the morning for Colorado Springs, Colorado, and hoping to enjoy a fireworks show there. 
Pikes Peak is also on our list of things to see.

I'll have to wait to get back to post pictures.

Have a happy 4th of July, and remember, freedom is not free.
