No crab at The Crab House

(Continued)

OTTUMWA —

Another comment: It was made clear that seats would be rotated daily, so most everyone would get a chance to sit near the front. Well, my roomie and I started in the middle, moved up the next day, but the day after that, we started heading towards the back, and that didn't change. Since the bus had extra room, it was very nice to have two seats to yourself, if you wanted.

Returning home, you soon forget about petty annoyances and reflect on the trip highlights. Loved traveling with fellow Ottumwans, and see, I did not mention names, however tempted I might be. We were a delightful group, definitely full of sunshine.

Oh, I forgot to mention. Our last night farewell dinner was to be in one of St. Louis' fine restaurants. Turned out to be The Pasta House in St. Charles. And guess what the entrees were: chicken, chicken and chicken (parmesan, marsala, flamenco).
