Have changed the oil in my old car (the 1999 model with 125,000 miles on it) and about to hit the road.  So won’t be on my keyboard for several days.

Purpose of this wandering is to attend the board meeting of the Rural Schools Collaborative being held in St.; Louis.  This is the group that has worked hand-in-hand with the University of West Alabama to get the Black Belt Teacher Corps up and going.  They also coordinate the rural grants program that has assisted many teachers across the state.

Other than St. Louis, I have no itinerary or real destination.  Just another chapter in Larry Lee sees the country.  Somewhere I happened on info telling me that there is a replica of the Eifel Tower in Paris, TN.  I have seen the real tower in Paris, France and have also been to Paris, TX.  So chances are good that I will make a stop in Paris, TN just to say I’ve been.

No doubt I will find some country roads and see what is at the other end of them, keeping an eye out for local eateries.

I trust you will keep the home fires burning.
