Well, it was a fun little trip to Rugby, ND, today! I felt very centered at the geographical center of North America. A word of advice - on the day of your road trip, check Google to see if your destinations are open. We wanted to stop in Anamoose for breakfast - but both options were closed on Sundays! Next time...
Prairie Village Museum was excellent - besides the old houses and schools, we visited a jail, summer kitchen, bank, land office, church, undertakers' quarters, and an old doctors sled.
Just yesterday my father-in-law was teaching me about farm life; how the windmill pumped water and how he helped make sausage.
The rhubarb tasting was super yummy! Don't worry - I did NOT eat the rhubarb leaves! I learned they were poisonous from the rhubarb fact sheet. One ticket per taste. We sampled ice cream, slush, mousse, brownies, bars, crisp, cheesecake, etc. Visiting with a few lovely ladies who had grown up in Rugby and Towner was a bonus! What fun to listen to their stories!
