Side trip to Metropolis

On the way home from the reunion we made an unintentional side trip to Metropolis. We had decided to follow the old way we use to take home from Mississippi. Try to imagine five kids and two adults in one car, for twelve hours and most of the trips I was in either a full leg cast or leg brace. How did we do it? We must have had some internal sense of origami. Any way, back to the story of the sister's trip home, first we passed our favorite place in all the world, Duck's market. It is a somewhat trashy place that has all the normal tourist stuff, really silly, hillbilly stuff. Every time we saw the signs coming when we were kids we would start begging," please, can we stop, please, please".  And of course we wanted one of everything, and of course we couldn't have it, there was barely room for us in the car. I bought my brother in Pa a rubber bank gun that I am going to send to him. He always wanted one but never got it. He doesn't do the computer so he won't see this. And if one of his daughters reads this I know they won't tell him, cause you don't want to cross Aunt Joyce when she is pulling a surprise, right girls?

And again, back to the story, on the old road we saw the sign for the "GIANT SUPERMAN" in Metropolis so, of course we had to go see it.  We laughed so hard we couldn't breathe. 
Tour Bus Stop, are you kidding me!

Lois Lane just got a small corner.

Lord, we packed a whole lot of fun in that long weekend.
