My parents recently traveled to Missouri, Arkansas and Kansas for their 47-year wedding anniversary. They like to hit the highway and just explore various areas of the country that they haven't been to. Since my Dad recently retired they have more time on their hands for such things. When I heard their itinerary would take them right through Rich Hill, Missouri, I "deputized" them to do some work for this site.
They couldn't go by Rich Hill without stopping in and saying hello to some Old Order Mennonite friends of mine. But getting there proved to be a bit tricky. I get this text from my Mom as they approached my friend's house:
"We are on a rocky road in the middle of nowhere."
I wasn't sure whether that meant they needed me to call to help guide them or not.
Apparently not. I got a text a short while later saying: "We found them and had a wonderful visit."It was a short visit but I talked to my Mom on the phone after she left and my Dad got a lot of great photos . I will "de-brief" them more on their Rich Hill visit soon and post additional photos and information here, probably next week.
But here are some scenes as they approached my Old Order Mennonite friends. I love the "Cozy Nook Bookstore." It must be cozy because, apparently, it is out in the middle of nowhere!
