I goofed off today. A friend and I can seldom get together because of our schedules, so we set aside today a long time ago and held it religiously free so we could play together. Spent the day driving along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, visiting towns that have been there since the Civil War, admiring Victorian mansions, riding ferries, antiquing, and enjoying the fall colors.
I really, really miss writing American historicals. The amount of material just lying around, dying to be written about, is amazing. Guess no one wants to read about log cabins and barn dances, but the era after the Civil War was very civilized. Don't know why American history has fallen out of favor. Anyone got a clue?
