Trip to Grandma's, Part 5
We survived the plane ride. Spent an hour at the O'Hare Budget Rent-a-Car in a snowstorm while Jennifer rejected various cars ("smells like smoke," "too small"). Finally got on the road to Prophetstown, but stopped 10 minutes later at the "oasis" McDonald's. Another "oasis" in DeKalb. Finally pulled into Prophetstown at 4:15, full of chicken nuggets.
4-block Main Street. Illinois sweatshirts. John Deere caps. Friendly.
Retired. Republican. Church. Buick. Friendly. Tolerant of New Yorkers if they are relatives.
