Where's the silverware?
The solar charger gave the car enough juice this morning to turn on the clock radio, but not enough to turn over the ignition. A jump from one of our neighbors got us started in time to head out to Schwamburg for an oil change, a Jamba Juice and an early dinner at Medieval Times.

We sat in the front row and rooted for the Red and Yellow knight. Part of the expirence is eating dinner without utensils. Michelle was a little hesitant at first but ended up trying everything but the dessert. The server had "dragon" names for most of the dishes; Dragon Breath Soup (tomato soup), Roast Baby Dragon (tastes like chicken), Dragon Fingers (spare ribs). The show was good and even though our knight did not win he did give Michelle one of the carnations he had. Michelle was suitably impressed.

In all it was a fun day with some rest worked in. We'll get mostly packed up tonight and try to head out early tomorrow for Newton, IA, the first stop on our westerly trek home. the next few days will be uneventful as we make a pretty much straight shot for Mount Rushmore.

There was a Lego experience next to Jamba Juice in Schwamburg. Anne grabbed a picture of Einstein.
