This is the fourth day of our vacation.

We are having a wonderful time. After spending the night in the beautiful Victorian Carriage House, we had lunch with Bro. and Sis Muncy at the Hayes Restaurant and Tavern. The place is known as the oldest active restaurant this side of the Mississippi. What a place.. If only the walls could talk.

I had no idea that Council Grove had such history.

We visited the tree that Custer slept under before leaving for the battle of Little Big Horn. We also saw the place where the settlers signed the treaty with the Koan Indian tribe to allow them to move cattle and merchandise up and down what became the Santa Fe trail.

We left there and traveled into Joplin, Mo. to spend the night.

Since I'm so tired and Mervin's already asleep, I'll try to post pictures tomorrow evening.

trusting all is well. We're having a great time.
