I have been looking forward to finally meeting Sam and his wife Donna for a long time. He is a fellow blogger and a retired police officer too, so we have a lot in common.
Anheuser Busch brewery in St Louis. This is one of the oldest breweries in the United States and has been meticulously maintained. This building was built in 1892! The plant was very clean and the tour was well run.
Large and small locomotives.
The world's largest tank car. See below for more information.
This thing looks like an 18 wheeler!
This one reminded me of the Monopoly tokens.
We returned home and rested for a bit before going out to eat at JJ's Restaurant in O'Fallon where Donna works. We had a great meal and Donna treated us! Certainly didn't expect that! This has been a fun stop and we appreciate Sam and Donna's hospitality. She will soon retire and they will begin their own retirement adventures. We wish them luck and hope they have as much fun as we have.
