Where did I go? Down to Springfield, Illinois and then up to Rockford, Illinois, spending a day in Oak Park before heading back home to Michigan.
What did I see? Oh, so much, which eventually will appear here in separate blogs, but some things to mention are:
a. Abraham Lincoln's home in Springfield, Illinois, all 3,100 square feet of it including the room for the live-in help. I also visited the Presidential Museum there. Turns out that Mr. Lincoln was a VERY successful attorney.
More to come on this trip including a drive down Route 66 and the Japanese Gardens in Rockford, Illinois.
