|Route 66 through Missouri|
The Dust Bowl and Depression conditions of the 1930s led displaced farm
families to follow the two-lane road west to California. John Steinbeck described
it in The Grapes of Wrath, coining the term Mother Road. Heading west through
Missouri, you travel from St. Louis - Sullivan - Waynesville - Springfield - Joplin.

I didn't go to Sunday School or church today. It rained. Aunt Katie, Uncle Laten and Helen were by and we went for a drive.
