Road Trip!

I recently went on a roadtrip from Virginia to Wisconsin, and back! I had a huge amount of fun, and, as always, I was on the lookout for postcards! I finally found some Illinois mapcards. I’ve been trying to find them for a few years, and never have any luck. I go to Illinois once or twice a year, so I was thrilled to finally find not only one, but four different designs! 🙂

I went to Springfield, Illinois on my trip, as I’m a huge Lincoln nerd. 😉 And several locals had mentioned Cozy Dog Drive In, as being a good place to eat. I’m really happy I went there, because not only was the food great, but I also learned about a wonderful artist named Bob Waldmire! The Cozy Dog Drive In, had a gift shop, which sold various products with his art on them, and obviously I bought several of the postcards. 🙂 The Cozy Dog Drive In claims to have invented the corn dog, by Bob Waldmire’s dad, and a friend. I don’t eat meat, so I can’t tell you how the corn dog was, but my fiancé said it was quite tasty. I thought their grilled cheese and fries were great! 🙂 Here are a few examples of Waldmire’s art, which I think is so incredible and amazing!
