My adoring readers, it’s Otis here, and I have not forgotten about you, it’s just I really like my naps and those visitors that come in to see us. I do so want to tell you all about the visit to Metropolis, Illinois. We had a lot of fun for such a small town. As you can see here, me and Gus got to check out the super symbol. Don’t worry I did not mark it. All though now looking back I should have.
The reason I should have marked the symbol
So, here is the reason I should have marked the symbol. We went down to the big piece of kryptonite. As you can see I stood on it with no problems. I actually look pretty handsome if I do say so myself. So it stands to reason that if I can stand on a piece of Kryptonite with no problems then I am stronger than Superman and therefore it should be my symbol not his. With that logic I should have marked the symbol. Well, I was feeling pretty tough after standing on the big piece of Kryptonite and decided to run through some puddles on our way back to the Riverview Mansion Bed and Breakfast. Mom was so upset with me for getting all wet that she used my blanket to dry me off and would not let me go see the Superman statue. She also said it was raining. Now I can’t be too upset with her for drying me with my blanket she said she was not going to get their towels all dirty from me.
The Riverview Mansion
The bed and breakfast we stayed at had two awesome owners Lori and William. They were super nice to me and Gus. We made sure to listen to mom and dad, staying to the room unless we were told we could come out. The room had a nice fireplace I kept sitting really close to in order to warm my back side. This and mom would come move me every time I got close to the fireplace, which was very funny. There was tons of nice smells through the house and lots to look at. The breakfast was amazing. I got a piece of their sausage that they have made special and it was amazing. Also, I got a small piece of Lori’s caramel apple scones which was so yummy I sat and drolled while mom finished eating it. I can’t wait until we go back, dad promised me we would.
Well Metropolis, Illinois is now one of my favorite places. The town had all these really cool shops, most of the windows were short enough for me to look in. They had really neat murals on the walls and statues of both Superman and Lois Lane, which I did get to see from the car window as we drove through town. Dad wanted to stop in town to get more marbles at a shop called Super City Antique’s. I remember the marbles cause mom keeps make jokes about dad losing them. She finds this very funny and dad does not. He just keeps looking and mumbling about how mean she is to tease him. He did find them again, so I think he is all good.
The Road Trip
The trip from home to Metropolis was just over 2 hours. So I got to see lots out the windows. Sometimes dad would let me sit on his lap up front and I could sniff the outside air coming in from vent’s in the car. I could smell the open fields and the frosty air. We had a nice relaxing ride through southern Illinois. Well that’s it from me I will try to write to you more and nap less, but I will not make any promises.
