Hubby and I decided this morning to take a day trip to the country. We do this "spur of the moment" thing occasionally. I called Mom to see if she wanted to go, and she was excited about it. I told her to call my Aunt (her younger sister) to see if she wanted to go along. So, Aunt Betty drove down from Troy, IL, and the four of us spent the day driving to, through, and home from Southern Illinois. We ate lunch at Tippey's in Murphysboro, went to the cemetery, stopped to visit my cousin (my Aunt's oldest child) who has recently remarried and lives outside Murphysboro, drove out through the country where Mom and her sister were raised, stopped at a little street market in downtown Pinckneyville to buy tomatoes, got ice cream at the Dairy Queen in Nashville, then on home. It was a beautifully enjoyable day.
