First off, let me tell you it wasn't a fun ride. Oh, it was fine when we were heading north, toward home. But the intense wind took the fun out of most of the trip; still, it was nice to get out on a day when the temperature made it up to 70 degrees.
There's a farm store in Warrensburg that Cliff likes to browse through, so that was our destination. On the way down, I mentioned that I've always wanted to see the statue on the square of "Old Drum", so we went there first.
I love old courthouses.
We found Old Drum.
It was so warm and pleasant, a lady was sitting there reading a book.
Finally, I got to see the statue. Unfortunately I didn't get to see his grave, because I wasn't able to find out exactly where it is.
Be sure to read the story of Old Drum. I think he looks a lot like my pesky neighbor dog, Buddy.
I enjoyed the pictures painted on buildings near the square, too.
And all the old buildings. This used to be the Masonic Temple.
