After an overnight in Vandalia, Illinois, I drove the National Road to near the Indiana line then, as night moved in, turned to the expressway to get home.

Prelude - November 19, 2009
Rather than wintering in Arizona, as he usually does, Bob is now in Springfield, Illinois, spending his final days around family and friends. On November 22, some of Bob's work will be displayed at the Cozy Dog, the restaurant his father founded and which his sister still runs. I intend to be there although I don't quite know what to expect. Route 66 News has a nice report on the show and a link to the flyer Bob prepared for the occasion. It urges "Come as you are - leave different". I have a feeling that that is unavoidable.
