Just Returned ..........

We're back from a trip to Columbia, MO for a wedding ........ we don't travel much for long periods of time since we have to get someone to take care of the animals.  Thanks to one of our good friends for handling feeding duties twice a day while we were gone.  Columbia is a typical college town, complete with interesting bumper stickers and dreadlocks(looks like a lot of effort goes into these).   Both pics were snapped at the Columbia Farmers' Market.
The University of Missouri campus is just beautiful & so was the weather.  
Then it was off to the State Capitol in Jefferson City on the way home.  Here's a detail shot of the art & architecture in the capitol building. 
At 10am on Sunday morning, we ended up getting a private tour of the building including the House Lounge & the now famous/formerly infamous Thomas Hart Benson "Social History of Missouri" mural. 
We had a great trip and now it's good to be back home ........ always lots to do here!
