This morning, Uncle Greg, and cousins, Jessica and Sebastian, left for Omaha. Before they left, we took a family photo.
Last night Uncle Greg and Sebastian worked really hard to polish the badly tarnished house numbers on Grandma Pau’s house. The day before, they had replaced the outside light which was also very tarnished and overall ugly. Here are the bright and shiny results.
This afternoon, Jeri, Josiah and I (Tim) traveled across the bridge back into Iowa. We drove to see our old Davenport house where we lived from 1992 till 1995. It’s still there and looks nice. However the old Rasing tax office where Tim used to work (just two blocks from the house) is completely gone.
From there, we stopped at Greatest Grains, a health food store, in Davenport. When we checked out, Jeri recognized the lady as one who had worked there over 20 years ago. She didn’t look that old; she must eat really healthy and take care of herself.
Then we drove down to the Mississippi River. We stopped near LeClaire Park and walked across the Sky Bridge.
Then we drove across the Centennial Bridge into Rock Island. There we stopped again at the new vegan café in Healthy Harvest Urban Farms for lunch. The three of us each got a veggie wrap which we enjoyed.
