We started today out with a bath for little Gidget, which she doesn’t really like, but it would make for some nice smelling cuddles later on when she is dry.
First we had to find the Memorial for Andy the Footless Goose. That's right, another interesting thing that Susan found on the website Roadside America
Rather than trying to explain Andy, here is the link to read about Andy the Footless Goose
We had the description of how to find it also trying to use the GPS but it was not easy. It was in the yard of a farmhouse, that was surrounded by old military warehouses and some of the roads on the GPS were closed.
Then we drove around town enjoying the murals and lovely old buildings which included an ornate factory and many churches. Then we visited the Hastings Museum found by Susan, mostly to see the birthplace of Kool Aid.
In front of the building is a statue of two brothers who were trying to escape an Indian raid by riding away on their horse. They were struck by 4 arrows, one of them pinning them together. They did survive the narrow escape, thus the name of the sculpture.
The museum was filled with history from the ancient sea monsters through the native American tribes that inhabited the plains, to the pioneers and the history of Kool Aid.
We lunched at Jimmy Johns in an old restored building.
We had a brilliant sunset and warm temperatures so Larry decided to wash our truck in the waning light of the warm evening.
