So yesterday, Steve calls me from Art's truck and asks if I wouldn't mind taking a small trip to "Dewitt" Illinois to pick up a John Deer part for Art's "picker". A couple of hours into Illinois.Steve has a tendency to get lost. I said ok and began to look up directions to "Dewitt". The only Dewitt in on the Illinois border with Iowa and is in Iowa and I'm thinking "a couple of hours?" And Art says no straight down Hwy 47. Well, I know 47 quite well. With directions in hand we head off in Art's little truck. It's a straight shot south and fairly west of Chicago but yet within commuting distance.
This is one of the things we saw along the way. This is for all the high fliers entering Chicago International. Quick before you get off the plane and enter hell. No really, I love Chicago. I do, used to live there. Great city.
And just tell me what's wrong with this picture? Look closely.
And lots of this. Flat land as far as the eye can see. Wisconsin people lovingly call Illinois people "flatlanders" and they return the favor with "cheeseheads".
And a few of these really unique barns. The really interesting thing about old barns is by style of barn, you can find out which immigrant settled here originally. Their barn style was styled from the country in which they came from. Very interesting.
