The Indianapolis 500 Post-Game Show

Memorial Day Monday was nice because we left Indy fairly early and no one had any pressing reason to be home quickly, which gave us ample opportunity to screw around and take a few detours on the drive home.

I stopped at a few liquor stores on the way out of town looking for a limited edition Fuzzy's Vodka bottle made especially for the Indy 500.

I spotted a few in use at the speedway and I was hoping to score one as a memento. No such luck. One enterprising small business owner did take my phone number and said he might ship me one when they got another shipment. We'll see about that.

Fun Fact: Cataract Falls is the largest waterfall by volume and by height in the state of Indiana.

Fun Fact #2: Cataract Falls Covered Bridge is the only remaining covered bridge in Owen County.

Fun Fact #3: I am the awesomest dude, by height, in the state of Indiana.

Steph found the Cloverdale, Indiana House Of Bells on some roadside attraction website. It was pretty much a big collection of bells and other metal heavy things outside of someone's house in the middle of nowhere. Kinda cool, kinda serial-killerish.

Greenup, Illinois. Self explanatory.

Near Highland, Illinois we stopped at the Blue Springs Cafe for some foot high pies.

I like meringue a whole lot so the whole situation worked out pretty well.
