Elaine and I went past the farm where she grew up and drove country roads to have lunch today at Cy's Cafe in Dwight, NE. It was a great lunch of Swiss Steak with mashed potatoes & gravy, corn, and tossed salad. St. Patrick's Day decorations were still in evidence, and I couldn't resist trying on a hat. Small town eating places like this are also social centers. We visited with people who knew many of the same folks we knew years ago and got an update on their status. They remembered hearing their folks talk about some of the things that I mentioned. We drove past the East Butler HS, Catholic Church, Ted Kooser's Poetry Office and other points of interest. It was a great outing and one of these days we need to take brother Don and Gladys and go back again. I would even like to "check out" a watershed dam nearby where I was the construction inspector years ago.
