Where’s Chuck? Thursday 7.30.15

I’m on vacation, but I planned ahead.  Presuming that we stay on track, we’ll be seeing a lot of cool things–here’s what I hope to see today.

Illinois, Iowa, and on to Lincoln, Nebraska. Nothing big on the schedule today–just mileage…

Carl Sandburg’s birthplace in Galesburg, Il

The inappropriately named Sandburg Mall just across town, where we’ll stand outside and boo.

The Mississippi River at Burlington, IA

And a whole lotta corn…


About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

    Love the Midwest, hate traveling in the midwest, unless you are off the Interstates of course, then it’s very interesting.

    Yeh, the middle is pretty grinding. At least I had my two daughters to share the driving (Mrs. Junk got chauffeured in deference to her grace and beauty). Burlington, IA turned out to be a neat little town…who’d have thought?
