Alton Excursion

Recently my son needed to spend some time getting dental work done at the Alton Dental School.  Since it was going to take a few hours, I decided to take a little sight seeing trip.  On the same campus as the dental school is a statue of Robert Wadlow, the world's tallest man.

Having been a resident of Illinois for most of my life, I have heard of Mr. Wadlow, however, I didn't know there was a statue of him and I didn't know the history.

It was interesting to read about him on the plaques near the statue.  Wikipedia also has some good information, if you are interesteed in his story.

No sewing yesterday.  Still want to get the sewing room rearranged.  Trying to figure out how it would work best, now.
