TIME:  8:10 PM
PLACE:  St. Libory, IL
SUBJECT:  Chicken’s Restaurant & Bar sign

I felt like I should be watching football instead of StellaDella’s T-ball game late this afternoon – we had to haul out the blankets it was so chilly.  The sun was shining, but the wind was blowing and the temps (which had only made it up to 62 degrees today) were in the mid fifties.  We also have a frost advisory in effect overnight.  Gotta love the Midwest!  After SD’s game was over, we headed out of town to attend a fundraiser.  This building was located nearby.

We're having the same weather here; I turned the furnace back on! And last week, it was in the mid eighties. Love the vintage painted sign. Oh, that is one of my favorite movies! Thanks for the smile. :)
