During September and October Susan and I embarked on a tour of several midwestern and western states, driving in our 2000 Toyota Siena van(215,000 miles before our trip)a total of 7,279 miles through 13 states. We were gone 33 days and spent the night in 21 different places. When we got home it dawned on us that we had been together virtually 24/7 for the entire trip with no major disagreements and without growing tired of each other. I think our marriage of 41 years will last.

Monday September 19: Little Rock AR

This morning we toured the Clinton Presidential Library and it was certainly worth the time spent.  The building is entitled “Bridge to the 21st Century,” and the design is quite reflective of a bridge. 



We spent the morning at the library and thoroughly enjoyed the visit.  While the library houses millions of documents for historians and researchers, there are numerous multi-media exhibits portraying Clinton’s life and presidency for amateurs like us. We looked for the blue Gap dress, but it was nowhere to be seen.

Below are a couple of interior photos—here the design also reflects the bridge imagery.

After lunch we headed west toward Oklahoma City, our next stop.  Eastern Oklahoma was very green with rolling hills and not much civilization except for the proliferation of Indian casinos.  It seems like every tribe has one and there’s at least one at every exit.
