October 1977

These pictures were taken thirty years ago - on Oct 15 (Springfield IL) and Oct 16 (St. Louis). I remember the weekend very well for two reasons - it was my first trip to either Springfield or StL and my favorite singer (Bing Crosby) had just died. The first picture is Shari with some oxen at New Salem, Saturday morning. We ate lunch at a Hardees and then saw Lincoln's home and tomb in Springfield that afternoon. Elizabeth Montgomery and Hal Holbrook were filing in New Salem while we were there. The film was a made for TV movie called "The Awakening Land"

Sunday we wpent in St. Louis we saw the arch (although it would be another 25 years before I would get to go to the top.), the riverfront and the zoo.
