Sitting Here at the Munger-Moss Motel-- Part 9: VFW and More 66ers

APRIL 24TH, SUNDAY

**  On the way back to the Munger-Moss Motel from Bennett Spring, we stopped at the Lebanon VFW.  A Korean War veteran at the Senor Pepper's on Friday had told us this place was open on Sundays.  We found a bingo session going on in the main hall and bypassed that to the bar.  We find that bingo players can be really mean if you interrupt them.

**  Before walking in, we looked at the marker to veterans killed in the line of duty in wars from World War I to the Persian Gulf out in front of the building.  We saw the name of Charles Wrinkle, we were told a relative of Glenn Wrinkle, who operated the famous Route 66 Wrink's Market in Lebanon.  Charles was killed in World War II.

**  Watched the St. Louis Cardinal victory and there were sure a lot of friendly folks there.

**  Back at the Munger-Moss, we sat out by the picnic table near Route 66 and talked with a couple from Williamsburg, Virginia, who were doing Route 66 on a motorcycle.

**  Later, we went across 66 to the bowling alley for a couple.
