A glazed donut from Mel-O-Cream seemed like a fitting way to say good-bye to Springfield. Our schedules did not mesh so I sadly was not able to meet Springfield correspondent Marie. Next time! All the Lincoln sights were given Marie's seal of approval, as was Frank Lloyd Wright's marvelous Dana-Thomas House. As we were warned, the house was closed for renovation (since re-opened) but was fun to see from the outside.
It was time to hit the mother road to St. Louis.
