FRIDAY DAILY

THE LINCOLN HIGHWAY IS 100 YEARS OLD.    IT STARTED IN WASHINGTON D.C.
AND ENDED AT SAN FRANCISCO, BACK IN 1919.    A  CONVOY OF OLD MILITARY
VEHICLES IS TRAVELING THE HIGHWAY THIS MONTH AND NEXT, CELEBRATING THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY.   THERE WAS A STOP-OVER IN DEWITT YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, WITH ABOUT 50 VEHICLES TRAVELING THROUGH DOWNTOWN AND TO THE FAIRGROUNDS.    I TOOK A FEW PHOTOS.





ON THE WAY HOME, WE TOOK A GRAVEL ROAD AND CAME UPON
THE CODY HOMESTEAD.     BUFFALO BILL WAS BORN HERE, NOT
FAR FROM McCAUSLAND, AND LIVED HERE UNTIL HE WAS 8
YEARS OLD.    HOMW WAS NOT OPEN (CLOSES AT 5) BUT WE DROVE IN
TO TAKE A  LOOK.
 NICE LONG DRIVE LEADING UP TO HOUSE.
WELL MAINTAINED HOME.    OUTDOOR REST ROOM FOR THE PUBLIC.
WE WILL GO BACK WHEN IT IS OPEN.
