Many a Forest, Used to Stand, Where a Lighted Match, Got out of Hand, Burma Shave

Guess what day it was Wednesday October 21st? Yep, it was Sandy Epplin, Rosemary Koenigstein & Ora Mae Droege Girl’s Day Out! What a beautiful day it was. Our journey took us to Columbia, IL where it didn’t start out the best as the first two stores we stopped at were closed. When we got to the third shop, our friend Mary Fritzgerald was there & we found out the reason for the closures, which turned out OK. Lunch was eaten at Bully’s before resuming our exploits. Hoping for another beautiful day in November to explore the area with friends.
