We went to Higginsville on the motorcycle. I bought some chaps at Kleinschmidts, since I let Cliff have my old ones that were too big. He sold his original ones. We also bought a pair of Wrangler jeans for each of us.
Then we visited the Confederate Memorial State Historic Site. It's a lovely place, and we learned some interesting facts. This was a retirement home for confederate soldiers and their wives. There were houses for couples to live in who were able to care for themselves, and a big brick building for the rest of the old soldiers. When the last one died in 1950, he was over 100 years old.
I have more pictures of the cemetery I'll talk about later.
