  3. What an incredible journey. We love your blog. I am a route 66 fan and for many years contributed to the Route 66 Preservation Society. Went through Marshfield, MO in 1957 and 1959 on our way from Chicago to California. Anna Lynn and I love to talk about what slugs we are compared to you both. you bring a daily smile to our faces.


  4. Very interesting about Edwin Hubble being born in Marshfield. Knowing there was a strong connection between Hubble and Wheaton. checking the internet I learned that Hubble moved from Marshfield to Wheaton before the age of one. As you probably know, one of Wheaton’s Middle Schools is named after Edwin Hubble.
