Our Trip to Galena, Illinois

On our way to Galena, Illinois. For those of you who don't know, it is like Sun Valley in Idaho; and for those of you who don't know what that is, it is a big, fancy ski resort/Historic town on both accounts. Here Jerry is visualizing what it must be like to drive a new Smart Car. For those of you who don't know, it is 3 feet shorter than a Mini. -Jerry
Union General Grant's home in Galena. Most everything inside is original. Very neat to tour.
A view of Galena, of which 90% of the buildings are on the National historic register.

The Main Men in My Life

The love of my life is off working hard to bring in the bacon.
This is for Mrs. Susan... he fits! He grows by leaps and bounds and I still can't get him to smile. I guess I'll have to come up with some funnier jokes. Anybody got any ideas?
