Oink

I'm on a business trip in Springfield for a couple of days.

Strangely enough, there's this fantastic seafood restaurant here. We always eat here during these trips and I always order the Angler's Platter: Shrimp, oysters, scallops, clams, cod -- all batter-fried.
One wouldn't expect to find delicious seafood right smack dab in the absolute middle of the country, about as far away as one could get from either seashore, but it's here.

All the walls of this restaurant are festooned with Abraham Lincoln memorabelia. I think they over-did it just a bit, but after all, this is Springfield.

Mary Todd would have been pleased.

So my kidlets want to know if you've seen Bart or Homer anywhere?

Barb: I totally forgot to keep an eye out for the Simpsons.

I'll be sure to remedy that and keep a camera with me at all times while I'm here.
