Adventures with Cordy, September 26, 1976

[Below is days 20 in a series of road trip diary installments. To get the full context, start with Adventures with Cordy: A Road Trip Diary and follow the trail from there. --Amy]

September 26, (Sunday)

Jack got up at 2:00 A.M. because he looked at the watch upside down or something. We all reviewed the basic element of time reading to him, "Big hand minutes, Little hand hours." He said, "Phooey."

Stopped at Maple Museum at St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Bought maple syrup, maple candy, etc. and on to a big maple syrup breakfast a few miles down the road. Next stop was a country antique show where Doris stole some cut glass for $140.00. While it was being packed, Lynn heard on of the ladies calling Sears, asking them to rush more cut glass, they were out, Western Auto had bought everything. Then to Skowhegan, Maine.

For the uninitiated: Jack and Doris owned a Western Auto at the time of this excursion, hence Lynn's joke about Sears vs. Western Auto.
