Home of the Cardinals!
9/2/07 0 °F
Our four-hour drive from West Memphis to Saint Louis was uneventful. We had the top down all the way, enjoying the heat and sun, knowing that in a few short weeks Old Man Winter will be peeking around the corner. But today, even though the calendar says September, it's still summertime in our book!
Up through the Missouri Bootheel, as cotton fields gave way to corn and beans, and the land switched from board-flat to the hilly terrain of Eastern Missouri. Past Cape Girardeau, past the Ste. Genevieve wine country, toward Saint Louis and the Big Muddy Blues Festival tonight. We're now on the 5th floor of the Drury Inn - Convention Center, with a view east, down the street from Busch Stadium, where the Cardinals are playing the Reds as we speak. In fact, we're watching the game on TV as we type busily on our computers.
