Missed Opportunity

   I just finished watching American Pickers on the History Channel where Danielle was featured appealing to the city council of Le Claire, Iowa to approve expansion of their  Antique Archeology store.  To my dismay I realized Nancy and I  missed visiting their store when we stayed in Le Claire on our grand journey across the U.S and back.   Our Holiday Inn Express was just down the road from their store and it would have been an interesting site to visit.   In addition we missed the nearbyWild Bill Cody museum.  
  There are a remarkable number of places to visit everywhere you go and stay.   One has to accept that you can only see a small sampling of the attractions available.  Although we missed an Antique Archeology store visit, we had a wonderful stay in our room in Le Claire with a splendid view of the Mississippi River and a superb dinner at the Bier Stube  restaurant nearby.
  Antique Archeology has a store in Nashville, Tennessee so who knows we may be in Nashville some day and get to visit them there.   (Nancy will probably be a reluctant companion if we do visit but she will get to pick one of her favorite places in Nashville as compensation).
