Thinking Lincoln This Weekend

As in the Lincoln Highway.

In a few hours we head out for a trip along the Lincoln Highway here in Illinois from Dekalb to Clinton, Iowa, on the Mississippi.

Planning to eat lunch at the Lincoln Cafe in Franklin Grove and then seeing the Clinton LumberKings play Class A Midwest baseball tonight.  Baseball not played by millionaires, you know.

Tomorrow, hanging out in Clinton and lunch at J&D Steakhouse (like a Tad's Steakhouse).

Saturday, we join up with the Illinois Lincoln Highway Motor Tour at "Der Immigrant" Windmill in Fulton and drive back to Dekalb, with stops at Franklin Grove and Creston before a big show at the 1920s- era Egyptian Theater.

Sunday, we'll probably go as far as Joliet before heading home.

Sounds like a good trip. I'd like to see a movie in that theater some day.
