My knee was spasming out when I went to bed last night, and it really hurt. I had a hard time falling asleep. As a consequence, I overslept this morning, and got myself together too late to go to the Route 66 museum in Pontiac.

So I decided to take old Route 66 to the next town NE of here, Atlanta, IL. There was a restaurant there done up in old '50s style that I had been to before. While I was driving there, I remembered that there was a grain elevator museum that I've always wanted to check out. So I drove around Atlanta looking for it. I drove right past it because I was looking for a modern grain elevator, and this one was wooden and painted red. It had a self-guided tour that explained how the grain elevator worked.




Then a decided to take a picture of the tiny Carnegie (I think) library. While I was there, I realized that I was close to the restaurant, but there was a museum next to the restaurant. I decided to go in. It had an arcade museum with old video games--Space Invaders! Pac-man! I took some pictures there, and then checked out the rest of the museum, and took lots of pictures.



Then I went to the restaurant. I had a large (1/3 pound!) frisco melt with homemade potato chips, and blackberry pie a la mode for dessert. I'm stuffed. Burp.



I had a great time, and I have lots to write about for the blog.
